Re: Surprise ending, continuation. <warning: GROSS>

John after seeing the rest of the pic's I'm even more amazed that there wasn't any more damage to the bike not to mention yourself. How much inpact did your leg take Any way good to see you found a new way to clean a deer take it easy and keep a watchful eye out for flying deer.

I don't think my leg got any impact.
I don't remember any.
I also suspect that the goo would have been rubbed off my boots and leathers by the carcass impact, if it had of occured.
Not sure tho.

Another interesting thought...
I don't recall seeing any other animals on (or near) the road on any of the other parts of yesterdays ride.
Not even a squirrel in the road.
With that many miles (543) I would normally expect to see more biological road hazards to be aware of.
Ah well... I guess this was enough.

How is he with straightening bent forks?

I'd give you the GPS co-ordinates, but it's probably not worth it.

That’s it.
Moto_Man: after a front-ender like that, before putting any money into repair parts, I would take very careful measurements on the triple tree, fork rake and veritcal alignment of the fork bearing. Since you hit the deer primarily on one side only, it is entirely possible that the fork bearing has been torqued out of vertical alignment and possibly the rake altered as well. If so, we're talking some $$. Since you road over 100 miles with the bent forks, I think it would be wise to replace the wheel bearings as well. I had a front ender like yours on my previous R1100 and just like you, the bike didn't go down. I thought: "well, I dodged that bullet!" When the shop took measurements on the frame, forks, etc., the tally was $8000 (!). I wish you good luck, but put the steel rule on it before openning the wallet...

Re: Surprise ending, continuation. <warning: GROSS>

As tempting as it is to make a Bambi joke here, I'm just glad that you're alright.
As gruesome as those images are, I think that it's a stark reminder of the razor's edge that we're all riding each time we're balanced on two wheels.
I've seen similar images elsewhere on the 'net, but it wasn't the deer...
For me personally, I know that for sure that I'll be thinking of that picture of a pile of guts the next time I'm riding in the mountains near dusk.
