This is about the third deer strike written up on here in just the last 2-3 months. I guess this further proves what has been talked about on here a lot over the last couple years ... that The Shark is no longer considered the ugly duckling in the Harley nest, that it's "The Bike" that everyone wants to ride ....even the woods critters!!!

On a more serious note, we're all very glad to know that you escaped what could have been a disasterous situation and will soon be back riding again. You'll never ride through that area again without being on high alert, scanning for deer. I hit one a couple years ago with my Tundra to the tune of $5,400. on a road I drive most every day and I still haven't stopped looking for more attack deer!

That is a big ouch. A few years ago we were heading from the dealership to rolling thunder at Ft. Washington HD. Now there were about 300 bikes and a doe ran into the middle of the pack and took out one guy. He did not make it as well as you did and we were only doing 30mph at the time. The motor units doing the escort were at the intersection just a few yards away and well,,, the doe didn't make it away from that TA scene!!!!

Wow, Glad you're ok. Heal fast! Freakin forest rats! Probably my single biggest fear when riding in the wooded areas.

Don't it always make you look to the sky, afterwards. Good luck with the repairs. Kinda funny how she doesn't call me dear when we are riding.

Consider yourself a lucky man.

I missed being t-boned two days ago by a deer and I had noticed that my deer whistle was missing the week before. Has anyone here ever heard of a deer hit by a bike or car that had a deer whistle installed?
