Unless you are a professional snake handler any encounter with a snake can be a scary one. Most people panic and run away to a safe distance but what would you do if a snake came at you while doing 155mph (260km/h)on motorbike?
Now, try to imagine for a moment being on a motorcycle traveling at around 250km/h (155mph) and a yellow snake jumps out of the protective fairing where it was hiding and lands with its face on your hand; what would you do?
Well, the best thing to do is to take notes from this cool-headed rider, who appears to be from Brazil, and who kept his calm and slowed down in a completely safe manner for himself as well as the other bikers and road users.
I don’t know what is more crazy, the guy doing 155mph on a public road or the snake jumping out at him. It’s good the rider kept his cool, I am sure many people would have panicked and flipped the bike at that speed.
Maybe the serpent shares the same fascination as dogs who stick their heads out of car windows. I can just picture the snake with his tongue hanging out as the wind hits his face, lol. What would you have done in this situation?
