RPG Posted November 17, 2009 Share Posted November 17, 2009 Thought I would give everyone on this board another reminder (that you probably don't need) but had an encounter with the four legged kind on Nov. 7. East Tawas, MI. While riding from the State park into town for dinner, had a 200 lb. Doe come out of nowhere and take me out. Have no memory of the incident since I was knocked unconscious and got a Level 3 concussion. After already surviving a 10 point Buck encounter in 2004, this has seriously questioned my desire to ride anymore. That's not a decision to make at this time, but I do know one thing. There's just too many damned deer around. And they come out of nowhere at times to wreak havoc. I was purposely travelling slow (about 30mph) and watching for deer but this one just came out of nowhere. Doing better now after a four day stay in the hospital. Have some small contusions on my lower back but nothing that won't heal over time. Once again, my Shoei RF1000 saved my life as did my old Paris Dakar jacket and boots and gloves. ATGATT is strictly enforced and once again it saved my tail. So please, please be careful. Until we kill about a million deer in Michigan, it's just not safe to ride here. Our do-nothing Governor even raised the hunting permits on out of state hunters. Duhh! RPG Link to comment
