:eek1They come at you bloody fast, that's all I know!!! :Luckily I steered into it rather than away from it and just caught the back end with the left side of my 2012 DL650, otherwise I would have it it head on. It was a pure reaction as you just dont have time to think. I thought I had killed the deer as the last thing I saw was a fully grown deer somersaulting in the air and landing on its back by the side of the road. I went back but couldnt find it though. The cool thing was that I was expecting a lot of front end damage but it looks like the fairing is tougher than it looks. No damage that I can see apart from one of the headlight bulbs being blown. Here in Northern VA I'm always very wary at dawn and dusk but at 11am you just done expect it. It was also in a suburban area and not out in the country at all. Thank you Jesus!!! I don't think the fairing is actually scratched, the marks are mud from the deer's ass. Just for clarification the deer was running in front of me from left to right, so the deer was thrown completely over my bike.
