I heard just a small blurb on the news last night. Mostly, they were talking about the 70 yr old man who was killed by a train at 15 mile and Grossebeck.
But they mentioned that 3 people had died in MC this past wknd.

One of them was a motorcycle passenger who was killed when a deer popped out in the road.

Did anyone hear about this? Where it happened, when, who it was?

Very spooky, these deer/vehicle accidents lately.

I belive it was a man driving the bike and a woman passenger.. The passenger was killed when a deer jumped out in front of them on hall road somewhere near CJ Barrymores.. I havent seen anything else on how the guy was doing.

I know there was one on Friday afternoon coming out of Stony Creek, it was also a fatality. Is this the same accident?

Yeah I've been spending alot of time out in the Pickney/Hell area and it is always in the front of my mind what I'd do. Hope the guy pulls through.

Yeah, Lucky almost smacked a deer up by us a couple of weeks ago. He went 25mph the rest of the way home I don't think we'll be riding too much after dusk up here, too many critters that jump out at you.


We had a pretty good motorcycle accident up here a couple of weeks ago. Bike vs. Harley. The lady on the back actually jumped off the back of the bike before it low sided and she landed on her feet. The driver wasn't so lucky, busted his leg up in two spots, his pelvis, forearm, upper arm, and some ribs. He was hurting. It was a beautiful bike as well. The deer was fine, just ran off.

Every time I ride, I tell myself....
I live in the burbs/boonies where deer are populus....
Dawn and Dusk are most active.... and when am I in a rush, and fudge the speed limits the most?.....late for work, late comming home.:(
I do often slow down alot for heavy tree lined areas, and streams/lows, but still....
I suck at spotting deer along the road.
