HAHA some one send that to hayes, that would make an AWESOME poster in a DH shop..........HAYES we dont even stop for the furry cute guys.................

hahah squirrels had it comin anyways, they are just rats with a bushytail, I think thats why rats hate them so much, rats have that oogy skin tail and nobody wants to give them food at the park, I bet a rat dared that squirrel to see if he could make it.

Haha, something is telling me that a brake company isn't going to like the words 'we don't stop' in their slogan.

i get your point though.

I hit a squirrel once on my way to class, it was crazy. It just slapped my spokes and flew back the other way, I stopped but didn't see it anywhere.

ROFL xD Did you have any blood on the spokes? Then the chances are the squirrel died. If it just hit the spokes, well, then, it might have lived.

no blood or anything. It was funny to watch though, it was like a tennis ball bouncing off a wall.

Never heard of a chicken that owns a bike. How did the brown line get on there?

I can't show that to my wife. She had a pet squirrel growing up.

But dang, talk about a luck shot.
