Deer update

Firstly, Jim, I'm sorry we could not hook up. My rescue trailer man Brian was confused by your card, pocketed it, then realized at 11:00am when we were riding up to get the bike, what it was about. I'm going to give you a call sometime soon. Your efforts to help are greatly appreciated.

About 44 hours after the strike, I picked up my bike in Robert's driveway. He was gone, but hopefully he found the case of beer still cold. I snapped one of the deer. Scaling is poor, but the torso was about the size of a human, so I'd say 170-200, but then that's without the head or legs. Not full grown, but big enough to hurt. Notice, signit, how much that gash looks like the same shape as that headlight you sent me? :S


I would have liked to have done a JB Weld to have one of those heroic ADVRider style tales. But upon closer inspection, it looks like it might have been trickier (doable, but tricker) as the valve cover has completely factured, not just ground through.




The rest of the ugly. Note that I cannibalized my swingarm-bearing-needy '99 for front end parts taken by the turkey. It doesn't show, but the cage is smooshed to the left (again) and the right side panel is popped up, not seated anywhere into the tank's fairing. I can fit my arm into the space between tank and fairing right now.

The front hook on the saddlebag has sheared off, so I need to replace the inner half of the bag.





Mirror glass is g-o-n-e. The whole front looks better in this shot than it is.



In the least likely of places (Mountain Home) I wouldn't have expected the presence of the Pelican. How surprised I was to find the omen. Jim, hope things are well.

Thanks for the updates. Heal quickly and look forward to your pictures of bikes in nice places and not bikes in nice pieces. Pelicans are everywhere it seems.

Major battle scars, and I was whining about the CF fender replacement when I hit one (waaay smaller Bambi than yours).
I trust the Seafood's fare was better than across the street, although I do breakfast there some.
Glad you made it back home OK, I hope the incident doesn't deter you from giving another go to the area and we can get together.
Jim

Congratulations on surviving.

Too bad for the deer.

We suck.



P.S.
I realize only a handful of people (if any) would agree with me, but we are completely redundant on this planet.

...+1 on the "nothing major happened to you and that's the most important thing!"!

The rest is hopefully fixable... I do not have a light anymore though
You seem to go through those way to fast anyway, it seems... also, it that really the "new" signal pod I see trashed there??? SNIFF

I received the cage, let me know how you want to handle this, as it will be a little until I have the time to tear into my bike...

Do you have full coverage insurance? Maybe the bike is totaled and you should just get paid off.

No. Liability only. My take on insurance is that any claim gets paid off in the long run. No need to up my rates so relatively early in life.

I have a similar vehicle insurance strategy, though incidents like that can make you wonder. Not for everyone, basically once you've made it ten years or so without without pronging something (and have invested your premium savings) you can afford to eat one once in a while.

On2wheels: I know we have debated this before, I have a $3000 rule on anything. If its over 3000 in value It stays insured, under it goes without. I pay for my bikes up front and used to go w/o insurance until a few years ago a truck blew a tire in front of me and I had to go in the grass at 60-70 mph in the rain( thank god for dirt bike riding) I kept it up got home and put full coverage on my bike, at about $150 more per year for me. I have a clean record and I`m 41 so some people may pay more. It would take about 40 years of acident free riding for it to wash-out for me. Thank god side show survived. Deer kill alot of people. Alot of people die in car/deer crashes too. Cause airplane mishaps also.

Just curious, was it very early or after 7:00 pm. Its seems like that when I always see them. They scare the piss out of me.

Regards,
Lane

I've inflation adjusted more than you, $10k for me (and none of my bikes are worth that much).
