Like funksouljon's story, this one invloves a deer that wasn't road debris until after the crash.

One of my friends used to have a habit of riding after work in the Texas Hill Country. One evening between Ingram and Hunt on Highway 39 he crested a hill at well over 100 mph and T-boned a deer standing in the road. He went right through the deer, and did not crash. The impact bent his forks about three inches, and he had deer hair and various deer parts all over his bike.

He managed to ride it home, parked it, and quit riding. He figured he should have died and he wasn't going to push his luck any further.

I once ran over a queen sized mattress on the freeway at about 80mph. I have no clue how I saved it.... And I was alone so no witnesses to tell me what I looked like.

I did go back and move the mattress off to the side of the road.

A piece of 4X4 from a truck's shoring blocks. A good reason not to tailgate if at all possible. The thing "appeared" from underneath a car in front of me in heavy interstate traffic that did not allow a safe following distance.
