please correct if this is incorrect

WOW! what to say... Fkn deer... yea. And my favorite quote was when Irish came back to the gas station on the SV and says " It wont go into 3rd gear!" that was priceless. Gary, thanks for going and getting the alum bond and coolant while I fixed your tire, the second time so I could fix Shawn's. oh yea, I let Garreth and Shawn ride your bike while you were on mine, to only test the tire of course
As for mishaps...
1.) Garys flat on the way up
2.) Newbie from San Antonio got a rock into his radiator, Garreth's gum didn't fix it though
3.) Shawn, Garreth and Gary watch as deer hits a fence trying to run from them
4.) Shawn and Garreth had an a$$ puckering moment in a 20mph curve
5.) Randy on his concourse went into a curve and had a mishap
6.) Gary had a flat again, same hole
7.) Shawn's 3rd radiator got a hole in it and started crying
8.) Garreth lost a mirror due to rock and numerous holes in windshield
9.) Pam vs deer in a 45mph curve at full lean leads to 200 yds of off road anger.
10.) Pam vs deer again, this time in a straight
11.) Howard on his Vmax vs boulder. Boulder wins at first, Vmax flips and lands on its side and Howard still drives that bad home in 3hrs of pounding rain to get home at 1:30am Sunday morning. Those are some tough a$$ bikes. So is Howard
12.) everything else falls under the "what happens in Bandera, stays in bandera" category
One of an awesome ride... 6hrs up, then 6hrs back... plus the ride on Saturday... awesome riding.
Oh yea, Papa Joe said he met a couple of guys from the MH group who said they knew me/us... Was that you Brandon, Eric?

Honestly I love the way it holds the road, I am not sure if I feel it is better than Metzler though. That is a tough one for me. I have been though some hair raising incidents on the Metzler's and am very confident in them.
I was in the curve with the first deer at about 65mph and me not panicking, and those tires holding the road as well as they did made for a safe adjustment into the gravel and grass. As soon as I made eye contact with that little I had to straighten then lean then straighten then lean, and straighten some more while braking the whole time and finally hit the gravel then grass. Never felt the tires loose grip at all, they held so well. Then on the straight when I almost made contact with the second deer at, well, at a high rate of speed, I had to hit the rear brakes and they locked, so I released and then hit them again, no un-nerving sliding. Was not near as scary as the first deer but I felt really confident in the bike by that time. I do like the tires, even on the wet roads I felt confident in the bike. I think all in all that is one of a nice bike and am very confident in it. Tires and all.

Haha, Joe said someone knew me by name when they seen the Vmax's. Said the bike was all beaten up, crash cage on the engine and an itty bitty headlight. LMAO. and that the guy rode one of a wheelie down the street.
