Were the dudes riding 2up? The report is slightly confusing. Sucks though. Gotta watch those natural roadblocks.

I just gotta shake my head when I hear about people being severely injured by wearing less gear/no gear. I hope he recovers and reconsiders his riding habits. Wear gear and save yourself a lot of pain. This guy's gonna have a big scar on his face to either brag about or humbly learn from

Sorry to hear this

wow.... that sucks. Just Sunday when I was on 149 I saw a deer cross the road about 200 ft ahead of where we were riding.

I even thought to myself, that it would suck to have one run out in front of you.

on the 4th i rode up to lufkin and had a fawn and doe run out in the road in front of me. managed to slow in time, and when i got close on laid on the horn. so they stopped to watch me swerve around them.
If i had been in my truck I would be eating venison now...

You're right. I recognized that as well. At the time of this accident, it wasn't even CLOSE to being dusk or dark. You typically think that deer are only active during the night/dawn/dusk, but not always.
It would be a good idea to practice emergency stopping and object avoidance skills once each month just to keep your reactions and muscle memory sharp and accurate.

Yeah, up here in the national forest area deer are ALWAYS an issue to worry about. I've hit one in my truck years ago. No problems on the bike so far. have spotted them though, usually at night cruising back from Lufkin
