I've had a deer run into me 3 times in the last 3 years. The most recent was a pretty bad time for the wife and family. I'm having a hard time justifying getting back on a bike; to myself as well as the family. When the doc told me that he was going to pull those chunks of bone out of my spinal cord, and he didn't really know what was going to happen, changes things. Here's my ride report on what happened: https://advrider.com/f/threads/more-wildlife-than-charlie-sheens-seen.1394267/ My bike was totaled and I bought a replacement bike a few weeks after I got out of the hospital. I still haven't sat on it yet. I keep fiddling with it in the garage but I'm not sure if I want to get back on it. I just don't know how to avoid another stupid deer. I wear ATGATT to the highest level I know and the damn deer just don't care.
