Deer versus RoadKing
Doing a bit of a test ride after working on my throttle linkage to see if it was working properly. I was less than 2 miles from home. Slowing to join a group setting up to turn right. A deer shot across the road. Saw it peripherally. I slowed further. It slammed into left side front fender. Didn't go down. Didn't really wobble much. Deer spun in the road. I puckered up and rode it home.
Damage: dented fender, broken trim. Nothing else that I saw. Look again in the morning.
Well, nothing except the horrible brown stain on the puckered up seat....maybe that part wasn't the deer.
Score: RoadKing 1, Deer 0, Seat -1
Thank God for Harley-Davidson. Had that been one of my earlier sportbikes....well, you could guess. The big girl took it with ease. Amazing. Didn't even twist the forks. Could have been worse. Trying to stop shaking.....
Because it is my bike and I like it that way!
