My favorite is the time he went bike riding in Africa.  My second is when they pulled the bus over and sent an armed security guy to scare off a fan.

Funniest Neil moment:  When he repaid the folks who helped him out when his bike broke down during the second leg of the CA tour with a pair of tickets to a Rush show that night.  The men that he gave them to told him they never heard of Rush.  

I would have loved to have seen the look on Neil's face when they said that to him.  It would have been one of his funniest moments for sure.  :)

Edit:  Neil told the story himself in one of his blog entries during the last part of the CA tour.  If I had high speed, I'd find it and post a link, but, I don't have high speed.

At one I paused for a minute before opening it, because a huge black bull, with a massive pendulous scrotum, was standing on the other side, regarding me

ahhh yes the pendulous scrotum discussion. The less eloquent among us would just describe them as socks with rocks.

Randomly throwing a drumstick at Alex's foot accidentally on purpose during the S&A backstage footage for the Beyond The Lighted Stage doc was pretty funny :)
