Worried about deer in the road? It could be worse…

Elephants always have right of way

A SERIES of videos on YouTube shows what happens when motorcycles and the world’s biggest land animals meet.

Shot in Chapramari Forest in eastern India, the videos show elephants emerging from the trees and chasing bikes along the road.

One shows a rider and pillion ditching their bike to flee. Another shows an elephant appearing to match the speed of a passing 125.

In the one above, the rider seems to be saved by some goats.

Suddenly the risk of bird-strike doesn’t seem quite so bad.
