Glad you made it out relatively well for a head on collision with a deer. These stories usually don't turn out as well for the rider.

Did you mean 200 feet or 20 feet? I hope you meant 20 because 200 should give you enough distance to slow down or at least try to avoid.

Also, looks like the deer took a crap on your swingarm. Sorry, had to point it out.

Funny thing about the whole situation... I went out bow hunting five weekends in a row trying to get a deer or elk but got nothing. Come to find out all I had to do was ride my motorcycle around for a bit.

Glad your ok! You sure did a number on that deer.

The back end of the bike stated to get a little squirrely. I made sure to keep the front wheel in the direction that I wanted to go and let the bike straighten itself out. Kind of like riding a dirt bike on a muddy day, the back end is all over the place but as long as you stay on top of the bike and keep that front wheel pointed in the right direction the bike tends to straighten out.

thank you sir! The gear is what saved me. I am thankful and lucky that it turned out as well as it did. Even went and bought some lotto tickets that night with me being so lucky and all.

I was taking a wild guess at the feet. It was about a second total from the point I saw it to the point I hit the deer. At around sixty miles an hour I don't know how many feet that is. I didn't think to myself how far away is that deer when I first saw it. I know that in that split second I had I came to the conclusion it was not going to be able to stop safely.

LMAO. I got off my bike and the deer was still moving. First thing I said was "someone give me a knife I need to go kill the deer".

Does anyone know what I need to look for as far as damage. The dealership down here is terrible so i am going to take it north 3 hours to get it looked at. I want to make sure everything is looked over fully and correctly. I am worried that there could be fork issues including allignment, triple clamp and frame damage. I am not sure what would be required to make sure they are not damaged... like if they need to pull the whole bike apart to look at the frame for stress fractures or if they would go in with a camera and look at the metal's integrity. I have been told that when an airplane takes on a bird they go inside all hollow metal and make sure there are no stress cracks and everything is safe to use. My rotors could be bent and am aware of how to check that. Can you please give me some idea of what to make sure they dealership does. Insurance sounds like they are going to cover it but if the total at a dealership runs more than $5000 they are going to total the bike. Everything they are going to put on the bike will be OEM not aftermarket.

also any ideas of portland, OR areas to go would be much appreciated.

"At 55 mph, you travel 60 feet in 3/4 second or about 81 feet per second."

You cross a football field in about 4.6 seconds. 200 feet may as well be on top of the deer.

I wouldn't worry about it too much - the rotors are protected by the rim anyway, and the rim looks fine. An impact strong enough to screw with your front end would have thrown you over the handlebars for sure. The headstock is more stout than that.

Actually, you could get a payday because most of this cost is gonna be plastics.

1. Get money
2. Get used fairings from the classifieds
3. Profit
