Cahill is traversing a two-lane road when the massive moose appeared from behind some pine trees and begins galloping across the road.

A near-miss with a moose hasn't stopped a motorcyclist from Gander, Newfoundland from continuing his two-wheeled adventures.

According to CBC, Adam Cahill was on his motorcycle travelling across the Trans-Canada Highway in Appleton recently when the rare encounter happened.

Cahill is traversing a two-lane road when the massive moose appeared from behind some pine trees and begins galloping across the road.

The driver moves slightly to his left to avoid the moose, and sure enough, he misses the four-legged animal by what looks to be mere a foot or two at most. A passing Toyota pickup truck was likely also extremely close to making contact with the animal. According to CBC, the truck driver even got ahold of Cahill after viewing the video on Facebook.

In the video, Cahill is clearly well aware of what just happened, and laughs maniacally at the gravity of what he just avoided. He also spews numerous expletives as he continues travelling the highway.

In an interview with CBC, Cahill says that despite what could have been his last ride ever on a motorcycle, he doesn't plan on hanging up the keys any time soon.

"Absolutely not," says Cahill in response to the possibility of retiring from riding. "It is what it is, if it happens it happens. This is how it goes."

Although Cahill claims to be a big advocate of motorcycle safety, many people have been coming up to him telling him how lucky he was. Based on how eager he is to continue riding, he must believe that luck hasn't run out.
