Riding to breakfast? How early?



Always avoid riding near dawn or dusk wherever there are deer.

I hit a deer 5 years ago on my Magna. It's head struck my right knee at about 60mph after glancing off the tank. Hurt like hell but all I did was swerve into the left lane and keep going. The deer wasn't so lucky. Needless to say I had a bit of a limp for a few days and even now sometimes still hurts.

I'm sure he would have been better off without that silly helmet too.

The RideSafer Motorcycle Safety Accessories web site has an electronic deer avoidance system listed.

If you're in deer country, might be worth a look.

"Had he been going 60, he might have missed the deer altogether..."



Ditto for traveling at 20mph, but I fear you are missing my point.



When you come to a sudden stop the organs in your body keep on moving causing rupturing of said internal organs due to the presence transiently increasing intraluminal pressure Â… (man this copy&paste make me sound smart). Sure body armor would save you chest a little, but it wouldnÂ’t stop your kidneys, liver, spleen etc. etc. from exploding when you go from 60 to zero in two inches. Best is to slow down as much as possible before impact.
