Went to the Poconos to vist family, was a hot day but the visit made it worth riding in the heat. Uneventfull ride there. The ride home was not as good! Halfway home a young black bear comes out of the woods and I hit it with the highway bar. Spins him around and he hits the saddlebag. Stopped to see if he what condition he was in but he was gone. Looked the bike over and the highway bar was pushed back and the saddlebag looked ok. Did some checking when I got home and the back side of the bag has a bracket pushed through. Guess it could have been worse. Guess luck was on my side!
