This video shows how quickly they come out of nowhere. At least this time the deer jumps over the biker!

the link indicates he had a helmet on but it was ripped off his head by the posts on the guard rail they slid down.

Hill Country deer run across the road FAST and if they broadside you it could be over. Sounds like this is what happened to them.

RIP

Yep that can happen on just about any backroad ride. I have seen deer run across 149 a couple hundred feet or so in front of me more than once.

RIP to the rider....

Rip to the rider. I wonder if he would have been wearing a fullface would have made I difference. I use to wear those half shell things when I was into hawgs but now that I ride a sportbike too half shells don't make any sense. I would rather not wear one and go to Heaven then look like a elepant man up my face.

what makes u think he was wearing a halfshell helmet?
amazing how people make assumptions.
And those dumbasses that put out print material without getting the facts should be fired

this would be somewhat closer account as to what happened

we think that it would not have made any differance. I picked up the helmet and looked at it. it was in bad shape. Her helmet didn't seem to have been touched at all.

Sorry to hear about it Michael. I was just pointing out that there are extra variables and it could happen to anyone on any given backroads run.

RIP to the rider.

That's cool. no problems. I was just replying to the person making the assumption that they were wearing a halfshell helmet. It was one of those times where it was his time to go. There were several things that had to line up to have the outcome it did. Any one of those things missing and i think he woulda survived.
It was bad.
Michael
