Just so happens both were at the sometime. Monday I rode to the mountains & on my way back, 5 mins from rt 56 I was in a lean on a wet road, and 4 deer decided it would be a good time to cross.
Clipped the first one and hit the ground at 45 mph. The Klim pants & gloves held up great, and the SIDI boots did also. So the 1200GS is in the shop with $7k+ in damage, that is why the 650GS project bike will be finished earlier than expected. I have more time to work on it instead of ride.
I'm fine just had no front brakes or clutch for a 2 1/2 hr ride home from the mountains. The was fun!!!
Damn dude! Glad youre ok. Sucks that the bike is down but if youre going to hit a deer it seemed to go as well as it could.
