Below is a video of when I was riding through Big Thompson Canyon. Known as one of the most scenic routes for motorcycle riding, you are surrounded by mountains as the road and river meanders in-between.
With large sweeping curves and riding mostly in third gear, it was an easy and enjoyable ride. I did not see any wildlife as I rode through, except I did spot deer on the side of the ride a few times on the way out, so I made it a point to slow down in case deer decided to jump in front of me. That did happen once in Missouri, but I was in second gear and had plenty of time to react. I haven’t reached that part of the trip yet with my pictures and video, but I’m hoping I was able to capture it.
Entering Spearfish Canyon from Colorado, there was deer well camouflaged amongst the trees, however, luckily for me, as I neared them on my motorcycle, they left running in the opposite direction. There are photos and videos of a cow or bull, I forget which now, that was also in the middle of the road as I took a curve in Spearfish Canyon. Another time riding through Custer National Park, I did round a curve and there was a herd of rams feeding on the side of the road. Again, being conscious of this, I was never speeding and always had more than enough time to stop, pull over to the side of the road, and take more pictures and videos (coming soon).
