I was out trail riding last Monday when I spotted a snake about to cross my path.I stopped to let it go across and it decided half way to go back the way it had come. It then puffed out it's head and I realised it was a cobra.I felt a bit exposed balancing on my toes with no reverse gear and a cobra a metre from the front wheel.Anyway it just slithered off. It put the wind up me a bit so I rode home.I crossed the main road and started to ride up the hard shoulder when I just missed running over the tail of another big snake. I wasn't sure if I missed it and was riding along checking to see if it was attached to me or the bike. I went home and thought about selling the bike and buying a 4WD.
