  • Motorcycle vs Deer
  • A nice night on the bike, I decided to "take the long way home" from mens club 4 Monday nights back...
    Deer vs motorcycle is the title on my X-Rays here at the hospital...
    All on the left side, 5 broken ribs, shoulder bone and collar bone busted up enough for a plate to be installed...
    Drs. are just now saying the "home" word...

    This is the first time to be on the puter, & it hurts to sit up, so I`ll close for now,

  • Dang, but what about the bike. we need details.
    Some fool backed in to my Triumph Trophy 900 last week. Insurance company is lost in time and space. I often miss deer by a few feet. Just a matter of time before I nail one. I take the bike with the side car to darts nights on Fridays. It does not fall over after a few drinks.

    Hope you patch up well enough. Sounds like a month since you augered in.

  • So Dennis, glad to hear home soon. Never a good outcome with deer and 2 wheels.It's been 13 years since I laid my dresser down on loose gravel on a curve (edge of road).Happened real quick. Ankle sprain and a purple hip for awhile. 50 plus years of riding for me.

  • Glad to here you up and about. It could of been worse. I ride a lot but I try to avoid Night riding. There are just to many Critters out at night. My closest call with a deer was when He/she crossed the road in from of me. I locked the brakes and I just missed him with in inches. The squealing of the tires made the other two turn and go the other way.

    Then there was the Turkey Vultures that eat along the road. I have had several close calls with them. One time I saw him/she taking off and I slowed down and swerved and he just cleared the windshield. In fact his feet clipped the windshield going over.

    I hope you heal quickly
    Best Regards

  • It's funny you should mention Turkey buzzards. A local guy was coming down a hill on his bicycle, buzzard was on the side of the road feeding on a dead animal. The bird few up and hit him in the chest, knocked him off the bicycle. Even though he was wearing a helmet the guy died. what a freak accident that was.
