Deer Deer Deer

In sept. 07 I was hit by a deer on my Z750, Damn thing jumped off the bank on a blind corner, Damn near cut her in half at about 40 MPH. Damage to bike was bent forks trashed upper cowl and all right side body work, Tore front M/C clean off trashed the exhaust and the right bar dented my frame and tank. Tore off front fender and right foot peg and smashed RH kill switch and throttle, Damage to me was minor rash on right elbow. Because I burned through my jacket just above the armor. Bruised my whole right side and had a gash from my right knee to my ankle a half inch deep from deer hoof and a concussion, All I can say is my gear and helmet saved my butt. It was a bit embarrasing as the Police pulled up while I was kicking the crap out of the dead deer for wrecking my Just 5 month old bike,But if not for the leathers and helmet Me and that Deer would of been headed to the same place
