Ugly ride report
Posted 27 March 2011 - 06:56 PM
The BMW store has it today, says it'll be 5 to 6 weeks at least for repairs.
Other than some bruising, I'm extremely lucky to come out of it with little injury. I owe my life to my overstuffed backpack, my helmet and armored jacket, my gloves heavy jeans and boots, and a little divine intervention. There is no describing the feeling I experienced the moment I realized I was going to hit that animal going that fast in the dark on my bike...damn!

Search motorcycle vs.deer on Youtube and you'll find all sorts of wildlife encounters.
Happens in the blink of an eye too (as you know):

I'm in Oregon, the new bike is in California.....they should be shipping it this week. I bought a Two Brothers exhaust, Pazzo controls, custom footpegs, and some carbon fiber wrap to make it a little less ordinary. I feel better....wifey is hate'n me for now, but she'll get over it. :banana:
