    I know weve all had those close calls that after the crash you think oh sh*t if something happend diffrent I would be screwed.Post your close calls and pics if you have them. My worst one was when I was flying down a trail in my backyard my front wheel locked up in between 2 rocks. I got sent over the bars with no helmet. My shoulder slammed into a tree and the bike flew back and hit me. If I had been thrown about 3 inches farther I proably would have broken my neck on the tree.

    Three mountain goats -and- four elk all charged at me from different directions. Extremely weird. None hit me or each other.

    I almost scratched my bike once. That was terrifying.

    I got hit by a garbage bag on a windy day once. Scared the jeebus out of me. I also crashed on pumpkin guts.

    Some redneck fired his hand gun as he drove towards me. He was not that close, so I can't be sure he was aiming at me, but there was nothing else around.

    Getting shot at is no fun!

    It's happened a few times. Some inbred, drunk rednecks used to fire over our heads when we practicing for a dual slalom race. We would have to duck down behind a berm until the shooting stopped.
