Makes me realize how lucky I am...
Two or so weeks ago CBR600F4GD (Geoff) and
I were riding along having a blast and he
was in front of me. He entered a turn and
I was following, both of us at about 90 mph.
I never lost sight of him as he entered the
turn and I could only see a few feet infront
of his bike. Suddenly, his brake lights
went on. Geoff is a predictable rider and I
always know what he is doing which makes for
a great riding companion. Well if his brakes
went on in the middle of a turn that meant
trouble so I uprighted the bike and nailed
the brakes while watching him the entire
time. As I rounded the turn so that I could
see clearly infront of Geoff, a little tiny
baby Doe ran 10 inches infront of Geoff's
front wheel. It just missed him/ he just
missed it and the stupid ****ing thing
decided to turn around and run right at that
side of his bike. Fortunatley deer hoofs
and asphalt make for crapy traction and the
stupid stupid mishap of nature lost all four
feet and did a home plate slide across the
road as it tried to change direction. At
first I was laughing my ass off b/c it was
small and he would have sent that thing
flying; with most likley no damage to him or
the bike. What I found out later was that
Mom had passed shortly infront of Geoff also.
I know they are supposed to be cute and all
but I HATE deer. I am not a hunter but I
hate them. Sorry man but they are stupid!!
Nothing should be running around that big
with the brain size of a bee-bee. They
have run right into the side of my car while
I was traveling at 10 mhp!! How frikkin dumb
can you be??? Deer are the exception to
to survival of the fittest. When I see them
in the road and I am in my car I TRY to hit
them. Sorry nature poeple, I love nature for
the most part but deer are sooo damn dumb and
there are sooo many out here they are a huge
problem and if I do get hurt 70% chances
say it will be by a God #*%& deer. So yes be
careful... Makes you want to get off the
street and hit the race track eh? But there
is a lesson to be learned here... Go slow in
dense forest-like areas... Wait until you are
in the clear!!! There is a time and place
for all kinds of riding, I need to remind
myself of that at times, right now too!
Thanks for the reminder!
Hope that your
friend heals very fast and I am sorry that
this happened to him. I am glad there is one
less deer out there. Sorry people; if you
HAVE to rib.. well whatever feel free but you
won't change my opinion - and that's what it
is, an opinion.
Kill 'em all!!!! There are no lions around
here so we have to take over. Put a big
spike on the front of your car and make
a shish-gabob (sp)!
It's nice to have one of the biggest...
