Low-flying turkey buzzard

John writes that Helmet can't protect you from a low-flying turkey buzzard.
HOLLAND [New Jersey] TWP. -- A motorcyclist was killed in a head-on collision Friday after tangling with a low-flying turkey buzzard, township police said. ...

Witnesses told police the buzzard slammed into Maglori's helmet and the motorcyclist then tried to fight off the 10- to 15-pound bird.

The motorcycle veered into the northbound lane and collided head-on with a stopped vehicle just north of Phillips Road, police said.
After a nasty lawsuit, I am expecting the helmet makers to have to put suitable disclaimers on motorcycle helmets!
