Bear surprises motorcyclist in Thailand by popping out of the woods in front of him.
Bear surprises motorcyclist in Thailand by popping out of the woods in front of him.
A motorcyclist and passenger were traveling a windy road in Thailand when a bear popped out of the woods and wandered into his lane.

Fortunately, the biker in Nakhon Ratchasima had enough time to maneuver the motorcycle slightly to avoid a collision, as seen in the footage captured from the motorcyclist's helmet cam:

The motorcyclist first slows for a speed bump, passes a bicyclist and speeds down the twisting road for a quarter of a mile or so where he encounters the bear, prompting a “whoa” from the driver.

The riders and bear avoided what certainly could have been a disaster.

As for the bicyclist heading in the same direction? Many commenters wondered how he fared with the bear, though the animal likely would have crossed the road and re-entered the forest by the time he pedaled by. Or we hope so.
