Default Friend went down today.

Heading out early, hit a deer, hes got a few broken ribs, punctured lung ect... That the worst of it. Bike totaled. Should be good as new in a couple months. Hes kinda young and will recover faster than us old guys. Ride Safe Everyone.

Animals, so unpredictable, if you see them by the side of the road then you slow down but you have no chance when they suddenly dash out the trees directly at you, hope your buddy heals well and quick.

Well that's a terrible way to start the day. Hope he recovers quickly and gets to enjoy a new bike for the rest of the summer.

Hope your friend heals quickly and gets a new ride!! I ride in New Hampshire a lot and at night, tons of deer up there...A bull moose ran between me and my brother at night last year...scary. Now, as a true country boy, what did the deer dress out at?

A local guy I know got knocked off of his bike by deer. The deer never made contact with the motorcycle.

i hate deer. In these parts, deer present a bigger danger than just about anything else I can think of.
