Default Me + motorcycle + deer = OUCH!

Monday night I finally got my bike put together after having carb issues. I was excited to get my first ride of the year in and rode to work that night. Well, Wednesday mornings ride home didn't turn out so well! I missed the first deer, but the 2nd one left nowhere for me to go. It slipped on the pavement in it's panic and fell down. I hit it as it was partially standing, swallowing up the front tire and down I went. I was only 1.5 miles from being home I normally wear my full face helmet at night, but it was really nice out and I chose the half... yeah, it didn't turn out well for my mug! Looking back, I wish I had my full face helmet and gloves on. Thankfull for my boots and leather coat!!!!!!








dead center pop in the helmet


my right boot (still bloodied my big toe from the impact)




deer fur burned into pipe


front and rear signals got barked up


Fur stuck in my ground up pipes

Yeah you'll feel that for a couple days. I met asphalt on my bike back in November myself.

Good to see you'll survive

I remember the impact of hitting my head/face on the pavement, my next memory is standing looking at my bike laying in the opposite lane. The act of getting to my feet I have no idea. I actually rode the damn thing home afterwards too, blood all over the tank and engine!

Glad you're ok (for the most part) many others who have hit deer on their bikes were not so lucky. I hope you're feeling better soon.

ouch. very lucky to walk away from a deer impact on a bike, let alone ride it home afterwards.

I've never managed to get a bike after my Dad had 3 separate bike accidents (hit a dog, blew a rear tire, and got bumped from behind in stop+go traffic) and seeing the amount of road rash he got even with wearing full face helmets, and always wearing leather jacket/gloves.

lucky for you the deer faired worse then you. This is one of the reasons i am sorta on the fence about getting a bike. Dumbass drivers, and animals.

I usually do wear my full face when riding at night. But, it was my first time out for the year and it was great weather. I was enjoying every bit of it, up until furball decided to run out! Out of all the various injuries, it's my palm that bugs me most. Woke me up after 4 hours of sleep burning like mad.

Any injury to the hands sucks. I sliced my hand open from one side of the palm to the other last year, and it was awful.

ATGATT....as much as it blows this is a good reminder why.

Silver sulfidine is what you need for your palm, but iirc it's prescription only.

Your hand is why I do not understand the current market trend on reinforcing the knuckles in gloves...the palm is what you end up sliding on

Ouch! Glad to hear it wasn't worse.

I am guilty of not wearing a full face mask too. But almost always gloves, boots, and leather jacket. I just got a blue jean jacket with some type of panels in it that I am looking forward to trying.
