Deer Strike

Not me or anyone I know, just found it on YouTube. One lucky dude!
As you can imagine it has some language and graphic images, so NSFW.

My friend was showing me a few deer strikes on youtube a while back, I had one cross the road ahead of me, glad it was a hundred yards or more. If you see one there is another one with it, least I look at it that way!!

I hit one about 6-7 years ago....5:30 in the morning on the way to work 130lb buck ran across the road with it's head down right in between my front wheel and downtubes..broke one of it's antlers off on my leg, I didn't drop the bike just kind of wondered wtf and wheeled around to see what I'd hit.....I was lucky that day.....

I hit a large doe back in June, I wasn't hurt but the bike suffered $6,500 in damage and I trashed a brand new helmet. I was only going ~20mph. She jumped right on my front fender and killed herself.

Damn kamikaze deer.

I had one jump out on the road and ran into the side of my bike on the front at the spotlamp bracket back on october 20th of this year. i was traveling about 50-60 mph. I ended up with 15 stitches in my head, a torn ligament in my hand that required surgery and some good road rash. My Electra Glide was totaled.
