Deer meets bike..OUCH!!!

click here

Found this over on stevnmd's site...its similar to another one we have on here, but not the same.


Its kinda hard to tell what happened, because of the glare, but if u watch it a couple times, u'll notice the deer.


either way, watch out for them deer!!

Looking at it at the end of the video is has it in slow mode and it looked a little small to be a deer. But that has to suck hitting anything.

WOW I don't think I have seen anyone use that many smilies in one post before. You win a prize. I don't know what but something.

So he ran over you. Did it leave any kind of tire mark and anything?? you have pics of it? How bad was your bike?

That must of been in Florida because deer up here are 10x that size - that looked like a dog or something. All I want to know is did he keep the deer? Man that was messed up - end over end. Pretty crazy. That's why you don't ride backroads in fall in Michigan - the deer are moving, especially after November 15. Man now I am hungry for some jerky. I am checking the freezer today to see if I have some meat worthy of some jerky. I know a couple of mfrs that are down for some MP Special Blend.

No flowers pls, just cash prizes!

No, he didn't run over me. I locked up the brakes on the 9R and was doin some serious fish tailin B4.....up...over....BANG!!!! I was THROWN to my side!!! When I opened my eyes after the fall I seen my baby slidin down the road and I was rolling towards the double yellow lines that had cars coming!

Being out front or the first guy with about 15 bikes behind me. Then I started to wonder about those other bikes. ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM about 2 or 3 bikes go wizzin by me as I'm pickin myself up off the concrete..

When it was all done, the bike had hit so hard on it's side, as I said, that it actually cracked the magnesium stator cover. So it was leakin a bit when the oil system was under pressure. So I had to have her towed to the house on a flat bed.

But anyway, this is turning into a novel...so enjoy a few pics! I had her back on the road in like 3 days!

Oh, yeah! Actually the bike took the fall well, besides that stator cover. I still haven't fixed the scratches on the plastic yet. Not sure what I'm going to do about that.

Well I was going to hunt today but I was lazy and it was raining. I need to get out there soon before the idiots get out there with shotguns and scare all the deer. Time is running short. But I will do my best to hook you up at Christmas. There should be a small batch here soon as a pre-Christmas treat.

Looks like the frame slider didn't hold up very well, but at least it saved most of your plastic.

Oh, and does anyone have any idea why some vids that I try to view are real choppy and don't play smooth. Some are fine and play right, but others just skip. All sound is there, but the video skips.

No, that frame slider blew!!!

That's why I have said in other threads not to buy those. That was a Lockhart Phillip Carbon Inlay frame slider!!! And believe me, it sucked to take off after it got all jacked!!
