maybe it was a car and the pole wasnt there before? it couldnt be motorcycles because if a motorcycle was that close to the pole, then he can say goodbye to his mirror and handle. you say maybe he was going slow? He would have to be going the rate of where he would have walk and i dont see any foot prints. Even then he'd have to tilt the bike so the handle or mirror wouldnt hit. why would go go through all of that trouble?
