Aww get up, you ain't hurt.

And you are left with the disturbing memory of them sliding into the middle Lane, disfigured, legs twitching.Damn, I hate it when that happens! They just pop out from nowhere and it's too late to do anything!
Once, I had a buck run straight out of the woods into the passenger side door of my pickup! The ironic thing about it was my friend who was riding with me had just made a comment about hitting deer and didn't understand how you wouldn't have time to react! Duh!And you are left with the disturbing memory of them sliding into the middle Lane, disfigured, legs twitching.
I hate it but nothing I could do. Tried to brake and just not enough time.
That and I have a huge Cattle Catcher on the front. Worked perfectly. Just Deer hair on it. No damages thankfully.Thankfully he ducked fast enough to avoid any damage. Phew
That could have been ugly. If she had just jumped up a few feet and come thru the windshield, then my response would of been less laid back. I'm not even a hunter and I hate killing anything, but I guess s*** happens. I would kill to survive, but not for sport.Oh my god! Glad the truck is ok, that may, possibly, eh, have been bad for you? Maybe.
Poor little deer, nothing you can do though.
Nearly schmucked one the other day. Looked at my GPS for a second, looked up, and fuuuuuck. Locked the rear up and did a little slide to avoid it. It was a bambi at about 40 so I would have been fine but bike would have needed new plastic again.Glad I wasn't on a bike lol. Funny thing was a bike just passed me about 5 minutes before that. Kawi sport touring biker.
You got off easy. That could of been much worse. Good gear pays huge benefits if you go down. Like yourself I have been down a few times also. Be safe.I hit a deer once on a bike. Back in 1989 on Bouquet Canyon Rd, a big deer was coming from the lake across the road and stopped and froze when he heard me coming on my Yamaha TZR250 at about 120 kph (72 mph). No time to react, I center punched the deer. Like hitting a brick wall, buckled the aluminum frame, the bike cartwheeled, I flew off sliding on the road. I had an AGV Kevlarglass helmet and leather jacket and boots which took most of the road rash, you could see the kevlar sticking out of the helmet. The jacket came apart (single stitching) and my jeans were torn, but minimal road rash. I now wear only kevlar jeans, leather pants and jacket, or 1-piece leathers when I ride. The deer obviously didn't make it. They now have a fence by the lake since cars have been hitting deers too and I have deer horns on my bike.
