Motorcyclist who jumped nude from cliff reportedly swerved to avoid turkey
Press Democrat ^ | October 7, 2014 | RANDI ROSSMANN

Posted on 10/07/2014 9:33:45 PM PDT by rey

A turkey on Highway 1 caused a Canadian motorcycle rider to crash sometime early Monday, and the man told investigators he then walked to a coastal bluff and jumped off, naked.

The 27-year-old Alberta man had shed his clothing as he walked and was found, nude and seriously injured, on rocks about 40 feet below a coastal bluff in Salt Point State Park.

The CHP is investigating the man’s crash and a Sonoma County sheriff’s investigator is looking into what happened afterward, including whether he was trying to die or hurt himself or acted because of his injuries, said CHP spokesman Officer Jon Sloat. The man wasn’t identified as his mental health was being evaluated.

The investigators Tuesday afternoon interviewed the hospitalized man, who has moderate injuries including a head wound.

He was headed south, bound for South America for a job, he told investigators. The turkey reportedly appeared while he was riding on the coast highway near Kruse Ranch Road.

The man initially told some rescuers he thought he’d crashed as early as about midnight Sunday and that he didn’t remember anything between riding on the highway and then finding himself on the rocks, said Tim Murphy, supervising state parks lifeguard.

At about 5 a.m., a driver spotted a downed motorcycle on the side of the highway and some riding gear. Without cell service, the driver drove further south, calling to alert authorities as they approached the Russian River.

Odd. This isn't far from where the bicyclist hit the squirrel.

Swerve and crash. Then strip and throw yourself off a cliff? Huh?

He's Canadian and we celebrate Thanksgiving next week. He should've bagged that turkey.

To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.

Canada Ping!

It’s amazing how stupid you can get if you’re injured and in pain. If he hit his head, all bets are off.

Gangsta turkey. “Get off the bike. Now take off your clothes. (turkey ransacks clothes for wallet) Now jump. Jump! (jumps on bike and leaves)”

In the Fearnet movies, that kind of stuff always happens when one of the hard body teenagers says,
“That’s odd. I can’t get any cell service.”

That’s when the turkey makes his move.

That’s the fact. Can’t trust those turkeys. They flash some feathers and next thing you know.... They got your bike and you’re waking up at the bottom of a cliff.

This might have been some master race of outer space Jedi turkey using mind control.
We’ve eaten them for many years, but the dangerous Toms somehow always seem to slip away.

Not quite. It depends on what kind of motorcycle the turkey is riding.

“What kind of motorcycle the turkey was riding”

The big bird was on an Indian, doing a Vulcan mind meld on him.
The Indian threatened to knock the stuffing out ... never mind.

On the road to a new life, going to yet another country to start over again, cruising down the beach highway, and all of a sudden some turkey wipes it all away? I might have gotten naked and jumped off a cliff too.

You can get so cold that your body tells you it’s hot. You start sweating and start removing your clothing.

I’ve literally watched a Turkey fly into a moving motorcycle and take the rider right out of the seat. Having been hit in the forehead with a june bug while doing about 40, I wouldn’t want to be the rider catching a 10-20 pound turkey in the face. No way could you stay up...and even if the turkey was suicidal enough to stay on the ground while a motorcycle was coming at it, hitting it would cause a lot of riders to dump the bike.
