What's worse than hitting a bat on the highway ? Having a bat hit you on the highway. I was on a motorcycle one night running about 60 and a bat struck me right in the chest, it was flapping it's wings trying to get away, I was standing up on the footpegs trying to get away. Talk about an eye opener and an adrenaline rush all at once, now that was one.

I took a bird off the windshield on my Triumph once.

The shield took most of the impact but it still caught the top of the visor.

Bat in the chest must've felt like a bean bag round.

Ouch.
