For a moment, I considered taking him home to get the roof/tree rats in my backyard. Not a good idea.
He was on the run, obviously intimidated by my massive quadsand the blinding glare from the Fuji.

You just need to carry a King Snake in your handlebar bag. Then you can be ready for anything.

Where were you? What road was he crossing? I have almost stepped on snakes several times. I have driven over a snake at least once. But I have never ridden over one.

A short, closed section of Doubletree between 124th and the canal. He was heading towards the reservation.

I think I saw some Silva bartape in a snakeskin motif at a local shop.
