Well 24 years of driving cars & bikes on the road, the first 10 in western Michigan, and a total of over 2 millions miles altogether, I had two first this week.

First was I hit a deer on Monday...

Second was I had my first get off on the road with a bike...

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!!!

Glad you're ok man.

I hit one while driving my first Tacoma and ended up totaling it. I still look at driving/riding on woodsy roads a different way now.

I'll be right there with you.

Plus, my roomate is a Niners fan... and rooting for Baltimore would just cause... problems.
