Hit a deer tues. at 5:30 am on my way to work.I was doing maybe 50-55 then all i see is brown,it must of jumped right on my front tire.Slapped me and the bike down on the right side hard and fast, slid to a stop on head and shoulder right in the middle of the road on a sharp corner with the bike on me. It took me a few minutes to relise where I was. Then I knew was in trouble, I could hardly breath with a bike on me sideways in the middle of the road in the dark. I knew I was going to get ran over if I didnt do something.I finally pulled myself from under the bike and was able to flag down an truck before it hit my bike. I feel lucky that I had my hemet on (its trashed) and that I was on my klx400 on off road dirt bike,dont know If I could of got out from under the rod..I broke my collar bone and brused the whole right side of my body throw in a little road rash and thats about It. The bike is fixable.

Sorry to hear that - Glad to see you are OK and you weren't on the V Rod.. I ride down a stretch of road at 5:00 am every morning doing 55 mph that is known to have a few deer and I have been lucky so far not to have any jump out of the bushes.

Glad it was not worse. I live down a country road too. Sun-up and sundown I hug the center line giving me the best chance of avoiding deer coming from either side of the road. Those f__xers are so quick. I have heard some real biker vs. deer horror stories.

Yea, I was pretty shook up. All my years of dirt rideing did'nt help me a bit on this one!! Looks like I'll be sitting around the house on drugs for the next 4 to 6 weeks..

Man that sucks. Glad you’re ok. I cringe just imagining being stuck under the bike.

Glad you're ok! Deer is one of my biggest concerns when riding. Of course that could be because I live on DEERWOODS DRIVE off of DEERFIELD ROAD. Everything around me is called deersomething !

Glad to hear you're OK and were not on the V-Rod.... "fixable" is a good thing.

Wow, heck of a way to go deer hunting! You do have a hunting license don't you? Deer tag? Are motorcycles legal hunting weapons in your state? Oh, nevermind, just the old game warden coming out again.
