I am glad you are (reasonably) OK. Maybe your new fur injection will make you half-man half-deer, like in a superhero movie

I always blast my (Stebel Nautilus) horn when I see any kind of wildlife on the roadside. Animals usually respond to sound.

Oh yeah didn't I read somewhere about a new law allowing for eating roadkill?

And this made me laugh.

Providing you were talking about the furry thing and not my better half...

Beware of this ferocious beast. Similar to Bigfoot in that only a few sightings have ever been made.




And here it is getting ready to attack a predator

- next a tumbling sensation (first realization that I'm crashing), followed by a sliding sensation (head first and face down)
- come to a stop and first though of impending cars coming while I'm face down in the road
- adrenaline kicks in and I jump to my feet followed by first realization that I've got a badly injured right arm
- I walk to my bike a few feet away and now on the left shoulder facing the opposite direction of travel. I reach down and turn off the engine which was still running.
Holy crap.....that's the EXACT play by play I go through including the "oh shit I gotta get out of the road". However in mid tumble/slide, that thought goes through my head and I'm trying to push off the road onto my feet or tumble off the roadway.

So how's the bike? My last inpact with a furry on my SXV and it almost completely destroyed it. Tore up my pinky/foot/shoulder/etc really good too. And how did you get it home???

That jack thing is strange. However my best friend went down in a mesh textile jacket and got scraps all over her torso and arms, bad too. The jacket held together, didn't ride up, didn't tear or wear through..... it's just that it gave her severe RUG BURN from it rubbing on her body while sliding/rolling.

Had my own deer encounter on May 8th on Bear Creek Rd near Briones reservoir; nothing broken but bad abrasions on left arm despite NO damage to the (also) Icon textile jacket or the gauntlet glove. Very weird!

The bike wasn't too bad. Of course some scrapes on some of the plastic, a bent front brake lever, bent handle bar mounts, bent bark busters, and some rash on the exhaust can. Luckily plastic parts for these bikes are cheap. The brake lever and bar mounts were the most expensive parts that were damaged and replaced (the scratched up Akra can will remain as a battle scar).

I called Ken (KPKE) from the hospital and he retrieved the bike later that night and delivered to my back yard. That dude is awesome! (those are his photos from the crash scene)
