One again, today I was glad I had the DA brakes. This tiime I was descending the other side of the same mountain, just a few km away from the deer incident, and I got the closest I've ever been to a bear (a cub, actually) who had a somewhat unpredictable walk/trot across the road - fortunately it decided to get moving just in time - perhaps less than 20 cm separated us. The good news is that it was smaller than the deer, the bad news had I hit it would have been that it was still a lot bigger than the LW dog, and I suppose the mother bear was just out of sight in the brush and would have finished me off if I hit her cub and crashed.
