It's true, nothing runs like a deer....right into my fucking car.



This little doe makes 8 I've hit in my life, not counting 1 I grazed without incident, and one that ran broadside into me stopped on the bike.



Three came down off of a bank, I swerved and missed two and the third which had cleared me completely, turned at the last second right back into the truck.

Oh well, at least it's driveable and my new insurance company didn't greet me with the incredulous "Again, really?" that the last one did.

I remember dad telling me ..."I haven't hit a deer in the twenty some odd years I've been driving. You've hit three in two years of driving.."

Two nights later two does ran right out i front of his Toyota truck. He stopped before he hit them. The 6 point buck ran straight out of the woods... and right into the side of his truck. THAT was a fun night.

check out the AWESOME name of the suspects

Haircut assaults put glare on Ohio Amish community


BERGHOLZ, Ohio In an unusual public display of trouble among the traditionally guarded Amish, a breakaway group is accused of attacking mainstream members by cutting off their beards and hair, which carry spiritual significance in the faith.
At the center of the dispute is the group's 66-year-old old leader, Sam Mullet, who said he brought his followers from a community dozens of miles away 15 years ago so they could live by a stricter doctrine without interference.
Instead, he has gained a reputation for being authoritarian and vindictive, been accused of running a cult, and become embroiled in a feud with the sheriff after a custody dispute years ago.
"I wanted something better for my children and my grandchildren and the younger ones," he told The Associated Press in a rare interview this week. "I just wanted to drop out of sight and just take life easy."
Hair-cutting attacks against several people, some of them women, have occurred in recent weeks in the area. Amish men typically grow beards as adults and stop trimming them when they marry, and the beards _ and women's long hair _ are held in high esteem.
Mullet denies ordering beard-cuttings but says he wouldn't stop them. They're in response to incessant criticism he has received from other Amish religious leaders about his leadership practices, including excommunicating people in his own group, he said.
The goal was to send a message to Amish in Holmes County that they should be ashamed of themselves for their treatment of the community, which has been called a cult, Mullet said.
"We'd like to get up in the morning, be left alone, live like normal people," Mullet said Monday, speaking at his farm outside Bergholz, a village of about 700 residents where he established his community in 1995. "They won't leave us be."
Authorities in Jefferson County on Saturday arrested two of Mullet's sons, 38-year-old Johnny Mullet and 26-year-old Lester Mullet, and another man from the community, 53-year-old Levi Miller, on burglary and kidnapping warrants out of nearby Holmes County, home to the world's largest Amish community.

I am a live and let live person, except that I strongly feel that

The deer must die!

I would extend hunting season to 365 days a year.

Sorry about the 'zuki, Craig.

Had an interesting thing happen to the V-Strom yesterday.

I rode it two days ago down to garage day, and then on some gravel and such with Solace after, about 300 miles total. No problems.

I got home and parked it, and then yesterday evening I washed both it and the DR.

After washing it, I went to take it for a spin to dry off the chain and brakes, and the clutch lever was totally limp. It flopped against the handlebar like the cable was broken, which I knew it wasn't, since I had replaced it not that long ago.

I ended up checking the adjustment at both ends and the adjustment nuts at the bottom, where the cable enters the transmission, had completely backed off. I tightened them and adjusted the cable to spec and it's fine.

The wierd thing is how / when it happened. How on earth could it suddenly manifest itself while sitting in my garage? I would have expected it to have happened while in use. I had to pull in the clutch in about 600 times on the ride, and had to clutch in right as I arrived int he garage and parked, and it was working 100%.

Strange.

That is all.

It's appropriate though, given the haircutting.

That is weird. Didn't you have a similar problem with the WRR, or am I thinking of someone else?

Either way, you might be actually infested with one of these:

I'm not sure why you want to jinx your DR this blatantly.

Isn't the clutch on the wee strom hydraulic like the V strom? Or did this happen to the DR?
