"Travis Meyer had one request for his father: 'Don't let Mom see the video.'

"The death-defying viral video.

"'After a couple days it was like, well, that's not going to be possible. He was on three TV stations,' dad Brian said.

"It's hard to watch but impossible to look away from the fast-moving images. Two videos, actually, were captured on helmet-mounted cameras during a group motorcycle ride the sunny afternoon of April 16 on Highway 21 between Omro and Redgranite.

"They show a small dog running out onto the highway and being hit by a rider, Brandon Ullrich, who then flies off his bike at highway speed. Travis was riding behind Brandon, and he dumped his bike, too, to avoid hitting him.

"If that's not terrifying enough, a semitrailer truck in the oncoming lane just misses Travis, who slid into its path but is somehow able to jump out of the way at the last second."
