    Heading into Oak Island NC in the dark a deer jumped across leaving no chance for brake or swerve. R3T goes near as fast on it's side as on it's wheels. Pretty scuffed up. I have some road rash and sore bits, nephew got some rash but we will live. Hope the frame ain't tweaked.

    That sucks. One of these days my day will come. It is just a matter of time. Got real lucky on a Harley Fatboy when I hit a deer rode on through. So many near misses on the rocket I have lost count. Glad to hear your all OK. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    It's always good to hear a survival story. Sorry for your bike and your pain. Hopefully everything works out for you.

    Glad you guys are OK. These bikes are pretty tuff. The frames are hard to bend, sounds like it slid. no sudden jolts.
