Keep an eye on the left side of your screen as the rider picks up speed. See that black dot that’s quickly growing larger? That’s a bear. They don’t like getting hit by motorcycles.
After the rider hits the bear, he’s sent flying down the roadway. He was injured, but the bear appeared to be fine.
Bear: 1, Motorcycle: 0.
