    We are at my buddies new restaurant along highway 30 in Oregon, helping him finish up some work. Anyway, when I got here I saw a huge hole in is Tacoma's grill. Unfortunately he took the duck out shortly after it happend and I didn't get a pic of the duck still inside his grill. But here is the after math from a bird strike at freeway speeds.

    60 mph, the duck came in perpendicular. So for the a/c still works.

    Edit to say perpendicular.

    I think this might be a record for you law, it only took you 10 posts in a thread to get a pun in. And had 4 more in the next 8 posts.

    Just before I bought my Tundra I hit a Racoon on the freeway in my Miata. It did $2000 in damage. I have been putting all my money into the Tundra so I just used some Gorilla tape on the front of my car. You need to have priorities.

    Yeah it hurts. I hit a crow at 75mph on my r6. Hit me square in the chest then flapped onto my shoulder and helmet to peel off. Felt like a fcuking punch to the chest. I stopped to see the bird, and that fcuker shrugged it off and limped into the corn field. Same road a dove hit my helmet at speed and scratched it. I stopped riding for awhile then had another dove hit my windshield on my tacoma. I swear....
