Well, gear might have prevented some road rash, but I don't know about the broken bones.

That could happen to anyone if deer are going to be jumping in the road in the middle of the day...
Plenty of people who were geared up hit deer and ended up in the hospital, but wearing shorts on a bike is just stupid all the time.

There it is.

People spend money on what is important to them.

At least our intrepid rider got a signal quickly enough so that a call to Mom wasn't delayed.

Deer. Eat 'em every chance I get!

Saw a pair peekin' at me from the shade of some pine trees on the side of the road just yesterday afternoon maybe 1000yds from where a doe ran under the rear axle of my (thankfully) truck one time.

They can change your life in an instant.

Heal up, gear up & ride again.

Stupid, unpredictable, dangerous, three words to describe deer... and squids.

Possibly, badminton or competitive cup stacking is more his style.

It's cool, I've got my mom on the phone.

Sucks to wreck, especially on that chunky rocky asphalt.

I'm thinking he didn't have insurance - as if that was me I'm taking a nice ride in an ambulance after I'm on a spine board and collared up. Getting up and in a car with mom is just dumb.

Yes! That asphalt looked like a friggin' rasp. Or a nice cheese grater.
No gear. It works every time!

Some hiking/work/military boots would have done the trick. Anything besides skate shoes.

Damned forest rats.

His mom was cool. I'll bet it wasn't the first time She'd had to rescue him. I can't believe the big baby posting the vid of himself calling for help.
