While riding my beautiful red 2013 GSW last weekend in Central PA, a massive doe decided to run right out of the brush and into my bike. I was doing about 35 mph. It literally hit me like a cruise missle. Look down, look up, oh shit, deer, bang. It hit me hard from the right, knocked my ass off and threw me down to the left, to land on my shoulder. The bike skidded off on its left side. I stood up, and had the wind knowcked right out of me, struggling to breath, I calmed myself down and took a deep breath. I guess I was doing around 35-40mph. I knew instanly my left collar bone was broken, and my ribs were fucked. My first reaction was to be severly pissed that a deer hat taken me out with only 472 miles on my new bike . I;ve been riding for years, and barely have had even a close call. Sat down, pulled myself together and called 911. An hour, and a helicopter flight later I was in the ER. Had all my gear on, Olympia Xmoto jacket (one tough mother effer, not even a tear). Xmoto pants, (tear behind knee where pad rotated, with a decent puncture wound) triumph adventure gloves (small tear) Shoei Qwest helmet (trashed) Result - Severly pissed off. Fractured scapula, collar bone, ribs 2-5 (posterior) and a mild concussion. My gear did an amazing job. The ER staff could not believe that I had no lacerations, except the puncture wound on my knee. WEAR YOUR GEAR. BIke is at the shop, and the adjuster thinks its mainly cosmetic damage, and can be fixed. Watch our for deer guys, seriously, they are no effing joke. Cheers.
