Something happened and I just wanted to share it with everyone. Last night riding home from work just enjoying a perfect bike riding night I was traveling through a rural area when suddenly three deer appear from nowhere. One shot completely across the road from left to right. The second one decided to pause at the center line ever so breifly before darting on in front of me. Riding the breaks hard and swerving to the right I thought I'd missed it. WRONG! Suddenly I felt and heard a THUD right behind my left leg. The bike never bobbled or anything. Coasting to the street light I checked the bike. About a 2 inch crack in the corner of my saddle bag lid. Appearently it hit the crash bar beside the saddle bag. Further inspection showed the latch bent also. Circling around I went to check the deer. It was lying on the shoulder dead. I continued home and explained to the wife what happened and we decided to go back with the truck and get the deer (wasn't going to let it go to waste). When we got there the deer was sitting up looking around. As I approached it, it got up and looked around at us and ambled off into the tall grass. What could have been a disaster turned out to be quite humorous. The wife took of pic of us together.

Thankfully it didnt turn out as bad as it could have both for you and the deer. But you can put a notch on the handlebar,you made it thru one!

Deer are a big problem where I live also.... Just had a group pass across the road in front of me a couple days ago. Glad this worked out for you as it could have been a disaster. Ride on safely my friend.
