7:30 am....the boss is never gonna believe this one ;)
"I hate when that happens!"
I had an 8-point buck run into the side of my truck a few years ago. Can’t imagine what it would have been like on a motorcycle.
A likely story . . . and then he had to get the dog baptized . . . yeah, sure!
My brother collided with a deer on his motorcycle a couple of years back. The deer was killed. Bro and his wife skidded about 50 yards down the road, losing many pounds of skin.
Motorcycle-deer collisions are serious business.
So DEER jump start their vibrators?
here in MN, had my share of near misses on cycles.
plenty of hits with cars.
Never realized how much Billy Chrystal looks like Jackie Chan.
This is no laughing matter. A leaping deer, even a lightweight doe, has an unbelievable impact.
Sounds like an episode from Sons of Anarchy.
a junebug to the face at 70mph hurts like heck.
I call motorcycle riders “future organ donors”.
I love how it says the deer jumped on a moving motorcycle and didn’t even mention that the 19 year old rider was knocked off and thrown 100 feet. Then it says the deer “succumbed to her injuries” like we’re seeing everything from the deer’s point of view????????
