These 4 video's (along with many others,) were shot by a fellow Husky 701 rider. I just thought some of you might like to see what "Happens in Vegas, doesn't necessarily STAY in Vegas!"
I can always post more of 'em, too. If there's interest, that is.

EDIT~
Some of you, may wonder how he does this. He has gained the birds' trust for one thing.
Move very slowly, and silently. No abrupt moves.

Interesting anecdote...He has facial hair. The birds were "used" to this. He shaved it all off, and the birds did not recognize him, so they stayed away. Far away. He then regrew his facial hair, and the birds responded with being used to him, again. Interesting...

Another EDIT~ I ride motorcycles. To do this, I wear protective eye wear. I was walking with my GF at La Jolla Shores one sunny day. We were strolling along the bluffs overlooking the beaches and sea lions/seals. I heard a commotion behind us, like somebody flapping pieces of cardboard together, making winds. Anyway, there's this SEAGULL about 3 feet behind us, in a hover. I look at the seagull, and he/she looks at me and starts to chase me. I first get in front of my GF and the bird is getting closer to me. I run around my GF a couple times, and this darn bird isn't giving up. Here I am, running in circles, wearing black leather and the "wrap around sports glasses," being chased by a horny seagull! My GF is doing all she can to keep from laughing so hard as to "pee!" Meanwhile, this dang bird is still hovering over me. Maybe 2 feet above me. These birds aren't small, either. The air this bird could move is impressive. The hair on BOTH our heads got messed up, just from air movement. Meanwhile there are LOTS of other people (tourists, scuba divers, kids,) all over the place, watching this unfold like a skit. I'm yelling at this dang bird, but he/she had love in their eyes. Finally, I took my glasses off to check a text. As soon as my glasses came off, that bird totally lost interest in me, and flew off. Me and the GF still laugh about this today. So, I'm thinking that our appearance has A LOT to do with birds conduct. Or, it coulda been the black leather fitted pants...
