    Well Saturday was first day of archery. The way it was running someone spooked it. It's all good. It was quite an impact. All I had to do was wash the blood and shit off. Not hardly a scratch on the bike.

    I was thinking about you as I was hobbling around trying to walk the sting off. I remember you saying thank got you had all your gear on. That was my exact thought at that moment.
    The only thing I had to do to the bike was clean all the deer shit off the seat. I got a little blood on the fork but that's it. IMG_4001.PNG
    And as you say. Fuck them deer.

    I just discovered my plastic radiator guard was busted and a small dent in the rad. My 690 is only 3lbs heavier than your 250L. The size of the bike I don't think was any factor. I was sideways when I hit the deer. The deers head hit between the triple clamp and the rad. The weight of his body hit me in the leg and hip. The impact actually knocked the bike back to a straight position. The deer actually kept me from flying off the bike. I was maybe going 40mph. Probly only 35 by the time I was sideways. I guess I mite as well order a good radiator guard.

    All I meant was my chances are Id spend more time at higher speed on a more powerful bike. But then I argue with myself "no you wont" LOL

    I know what youre saying. I'm usually ripping above the speed limit. My buddy says I scared him on my 250 more than the big bike cause it takes a while to build up speed so I just held it wide open. Saturday I was rolling slow because there was deer and elk walking on the roads everywhere up there. Plus being archery season I new theyd be spooky. I actually saw very few hunters out or parked along the road for it being the first day.

    You might want to put a guard on the rad, they are nearly $900 to replace.

    I ordered a Flatland guard and a rear brake master cyl. guard. and since that wasn't enough for FREE freight I
    ordered a Rally Raid foam air filter conversion and three filters and filter skins. On its way.

    Was heading west toward Brookville on Rt 322 and came across this old stack. There was a historic marker nearby, but it did not mention the stack.

    Old glass plant?

    A buddy n I was riding last Sunday and thought it would be cool to get a pic of the bikes out on this rock. IMG_4060.JPG IMG_4057.JPG
    But to get out on this rock (that was covered in moss n wet leaves you had to hop this gap. IMG_4062.JPG
    To hop on the rock wasn't bad since the takeoff was 6" higher but getting stopped within the 15' was pretty sketchy. If you didn't get stopped you n the bike was going off a good 18' drop. Getting back off ahhhhh. You had to back the bike up to the edge. You had a 10' run and had to just compress and hop the bike up. I made it. My buddy almost didn't. I didn't get to see him but I heard the scream and the skid plate case on the rock as he almost ate it. :lol3

    I won't be doing that one again.
