actually... it's my friend's problem. We ride together alot, and he has a trail on some of his land. But every time we ride, these cows come running to us. They must be attracted by the sound. I really don't know what it is. Well all this was ok for a while, cause they couldn't keep up, but one day my friend hit a jump and through some horrible stroke of luck, ended up landing on the cow. :( Fortunatly, my friend was ok, but then the cow charged him. He quickly started running and, seeing his predicament, I revved my bike which caused the cow to turn. We were ok, but now they hang out, one at each landing area to each jump. :mad: What should I do??? they are really disrupting our riding, and i can't seem to get rid of them. any of u guys have techniques for making it over them maybe? Or some way to get them to leave... short of shooting them? Thanks for any help.

YOU MONSTER! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

No really though, it sounds like your riding on someone else's land? If you are and you don't have there permission which it sounds like you don't, STOP IT! If you have permission find out who's cows they are.

Sounds like he has permission to me..

Anyway, he LANDED on the cow??!! And then it got up and charged him??!! :eek: You must have some tough cows where you live! Anyway, the cows always run away from me and my friends when we ride near them. We try to stay away as much as possible, but sometimes its just hard to get away from em. They usually stop following once they get roosted a few times.. :p No but seriously, I dont really know how to get rid of them.

I would go buy a few salt blocks next time you are at the feed store. Next time you go ride set a salt block where you want them to go. That should work.

I know you guys have a problem here but when I read the title of the post and then the post I ‘bout fell out of my chair. Some times the deer gather to watch us ride but I’ve never landed on one. You’d think that after landing on one they wouldn’t want to be any where near where you ride.

May be you could teach them to ride instead of just hanging around. Once they learn how to jump, they’ll be able to make it over to moon easier, then they’d be gone. :p

Good luck with your “cow technique”

ABee, reading your post brought back memories of the past, when I was about 11, me and my neighbor would go back in the back of my dads farm and ride. :) (he had a step through honda, and I had a Lil Indian mini bike). This perticular time, he let me ride his honda, and we where "racing" up this hill. I looked over, and there was my dads bull pacing us running up the hill! Next thing I new I was on the ground, my neighbor was laughing his ..ss off, and the bull ran away bellering like ..ell :o. ( its hard to admit that I had my front end taken out by a bull). Farm animals seem to always be drawen to unusaul and different activities that they are not use to in there environment. I never had a problem with the bull once he took me out, but you might try throwing a slab of hay in a far corner, chances are that until they get use to the noise, they will come back for more.

Yep run up on many a deer in the woods trail riding.even chased them down the trail a few yards before they dart off into the brush.

Tellya one thing wish I could go through the woods like those deer. :p

They have just passed a law in Tennesee that says you can eat your road kill if you hit a deer or something..Wounder if that would apply to trail kill as well.... ;)

Dont know what to tell you except it sounds like someone elses cows are on your budddies land.Maby your neighbor needs some better fencing..

A cow is a terrible thing to waste lets have a barbq at Spodefest!!!!That will take care of them..... :D

The cow on the lease I ride at usually run away when you rap the motor up. We get in trouble for chasing or harassing them. You could possibly get thrown out of the club. Its really not much of a problem unless you come around or over a hill fast and blind. I gathered what the title was about, but still thought it was funny. You should strap a cattle prode to you front fender ;) you could wear it like a sword and charge them away. Seriously the salt lick is a good idea. Also tell the neighbor to keep the cow in check or you won't have to ge grocery shopping for a while.

cow jousting anyone?
what have you been doing to these cows to make them like you so much? they usually have an affinity towards bulls for a specific reason, why would they think you might be a bull??

That's too funny!!! I have a quail that attacks us everytime we ride by his corner of the trail on my property. He dives right at your face as you go past the corner. He dove at Karl one time & when Karl turned to see what the heck was going on it smacked him on the back of the helmet.

How about tossing some hay out away from where you want to ride?
