Just one of the billion reasons I don't like backroads. Unfortunately they're the only ones worth a ****.

I know that felling!

I have had 1 near miss that ended upright with mashed nads and one hit that put me the bike, another rider and the deer all down.

The near miss was on the interstate at around 80mph. The hit was on a back road. We just cam out of a knee down corner and there stood little bambi and out of no where came Mom.

I hit Mom (Bambi got away) and Mike (the other rider) crashed trying not to run over me.
Thanks Mike

I love the mountains!

Yeah, I've had a couple near misses. Both were at night. One on a backroad, the other on a curvy state highway (but not interstate). The backroad, they came out of the corn. The highway, I came around a corner and there was one standing on the shoulder. And where there's one, there's usually another. Just glad it (they) didn't step out in front of me.

I had a near miss I never even knew about... was riding with a group of friends.. I was in the lead. I noticed that the other 3 all of the sudden backed way off, thought maybe they saw a cop or something so I slowed too.. Finally came to where we were headed, guy that was right behind me comes up all white lookin... says "Did you see that deer???" Never saw, but apparantley a big ol buck had dove out right behind me and sailed clear across the road, right between me and the guy behind...Missed takin me right off my bike by a foot or so they said... The guy behind me thought he hit a part of it, because there was a big whack on the front of his bike...


He hit part of it alright... ... the part that it leaves on the ground!!! He had crap alllllll over the front of his bike.. I tihnk the deer crapped right in mid air
