There's not many things I hate more than coming across rattlesnakes at speed in corners.
Just hope he doesn't end up in the spokes if you run over him - can get nasty.

The only rattlers at my house are Mojave Greens. With 5 dogs in the yard killing them is something I take seriously. Have NO desire to eat them...

Eddy, are you fantasizing about riding a motorcycle down the Bright Angel trail to the bottom? Too bad there ain't nowhere in that picture any of us are allowed to ride.

I hiked it down 3/4 of the way & it was scary in some spots let alone riding down. No way no how.

That's where I thought. I've passed that area a few times on my streetbike and wondered how the off roading would be like there. Looks great!
