Oh deer! Last weds, We started out with a great sunny day and was really focused for a mid week ride. 6 of us headed for the foothills.
The mojo was workin, felt really solid and confident rollin with my local buds. After a great lunch in Nevada city Calif. We hit hwy 49 for some fun twisties ... then BOOM! I look down and see a deer with antlers into my left side fairing. I didnt see him coming but knew instantly what was happening. I thought for a split second I hope I could save the bike but the next thing I know I am sliding ... rider behind said I was on top of the Buck for a second or 2. I hit 2 mud puddles and had deer shxt all over me. The Busa was spinning and eventually flipped. I am ok in fact really good compared to the Busa and the deer didnt make it. It was alive after impact and crawled off but the local hillbilly's shot it and hauled him away for dinner.
Bad news is my baby is broken ( plastics, left side case, tank ... ) good news is she is insured and I didnt get hurt ( wear your gear! ) Joe rocket leathers are messed up.
Another good thought is; I was just thinkin ... how could I con my wife into thinkin I should have a 2008 Busa?
