I was hesitant to open this thread when I first saw it. Glad it's generally a happy ending. RIP bike, knee, deer. In that order.

I think I have a 748/996 tank that's yellow in good shape. If you need it let me know...BARF donation or something, whatever gets you happy and on the road.

Thanks guys. Thatís really generous and much appreciated. Sadly she was picked up by the insurance company and headed off to the bone yard for auction or part out. There are still some tasty salvageable bits that should get someone stoked. Iím not in a position to do a buy back and rebuild though.

Iím bummed. I had just really bonded with the bike on the ride down to Palm Springs. Sigh. Onward we go. Not sure whatís next for a moto. The 996 motor with Termiís will always make me melt.

Let me know if I can help with anything at the auctions. Prices are high now, but not on all models.

Shout out to the CHP who gave me a ride home and the motorist who stopped and called it in. Im at work. When I get home i'll see if I can find the CHP's name. Good guy. Loved bikes and rode too. He was eager to try out for the moto unit.

I think I have the help I need to fetch the bike carcas from the tow yard later today but, thank you Tim. I'll keep you posted.

Buy quality gear and wear it. Don't forget to pay the subscriptions! I'll post up some more pics later.
Dang that is close to my home too. That was the site of a moto/deer fatality a few years ago--on a straight, four-lane highway no less! Bambi is my greatest fear. Training, skills, and gear can prevent a lot of bad stuff. But there isn't much in the tool kit to prevent an altercation with deer....

How about instead of introducing wolves they just allow shooting more deer.

Good luck with that in this state. Thinning the heard would be a good thing but not an easy to do in the SC mountains. All private land that you cant hunt without permission.

Hopefully the mountain lion population continues to increase and starts thinning the bastards out. Myself and others have been spotting lions more frequently, and spread pretty far apart(less likely to be the same cat spotted), so I suspect there's more in the hills as of late.
