    Dam, good luck to you as well. I'm glad I only broke a leg. Yes that dear hit fast. Barely time to acknowledge it was going to happen. Sucks about your bike to. I've had mine for a little over 2 months now and am at almost 5000.

    I know what you are going thru as I am recovering from the deer vs m/c. The abrasions heel soon but the bones are something else. I did not realize how many of us are hit a week until I started researcing this while recuperating. It seems that there is an epidemic number of deer in the south and elsewhere too. Hang in there mate as all will hopfully heal in time. P.S. I used to live in Belt,Mt. just out of Great Falls,Mt. Alan

    Get well soon.

    Reading up on deer strikes - there are over 750,000 deer vs. vehicle hits a year. I have hit 2 in my life - both in cages. Lets hope I have filled my quota.

    Wow that double fracture looks terrible in the x-ray. Hope you are feeling better soon...

    Did you at least get the rack to put on your wall? :D

    Had a few close calls on the bike and one impact with a car which sucked a lot as it was a fairly rare (in North America) car having only been imported for 1990 and 1991, loved that car. Not that it is any consolation but I hear a busted tailbone is quite the eye opener on the pain register when you perch yourself over the bowl to push out a grumpy. :eek1

    Just a little update. Leg feals like it is healing well and the bike is tore down waiting on parts. I figured while it was down I would re wire the stator to the Delta and replace the neutral ind switch screwes. I also went ahead and replaced my clutch springs with barnett heavy duty. We are a little tight on money right now so it is taking me some time to get shit ordered for the bike. Next is going to be either handlebars (trailtexch X woods bars/heated grips or buell headlights for a conversion. Then after that I will need to get a spedo and I have decided to go with the Trail Tech Adventure.


    I have an appointment with the orth Doc tomorrow, hoping he will say I can atleast get rid of one of the crutches.

    Thats all I have for now. Hope to see you at DDSR. I will try to be there atleast friday night for dinner.
