So I went out for a little ride today, just a quick run up the Old Pac Hwy. Plenty of cops about, not many bikes. For the most part just having a bit of a cruise. Anyway, I got to that point on the Hwy where you run out of twisties, just as it crosses the Freeway and becomes a 70 zone. I pulled in where many a bike pulls in to take a break & turn round. I decide I'll empty the bladder before turning round and heading back for a bite at PITS. So I step over the barrier and start making for a likely looking tree. At this moment, the large branch on the path in front of me thinks "Oh f*ck! A human!" and immediately transforms into a snake a little over 2m long. It high tails it out of there as my mind gets up to speed with the situation... "Oh f*ck! A snake!" ... and I leap upwards, backwards, execute a pirouette and land back on the road side of the barrier. I went and pee'd elsewhere.
