When I was still living in Oz, running over a snake was nearly a daily occurrence. I often wondered if the snake had time to strike your leg, that is if you weren't doing 200 kmh.

Broken down

How would you indicate to a fellow biker that you're broken down and needing help, instead of just having a smoke. I've heard of helmet on the ground, clove pulled over the mirror, amongst others.
