Buell Vs Deer Crash 8-11-2013
Before you troll and comment your "expert" advice, please read through all
the comments and my replies to get the whole story. I didn't just grab the
front brake. I applied BOTH front and rear brakes in an attempt to do an
emergency straight stop. I admit my main mistake was swerving my body to
the left out of reflex to avoid the deer. That threw off the weight and
then the front wheel gave out.
For those who say that I should have stayed straight, it would not have
been any better. Although, I didn't stop completely, the brakes did slow me
just enough to miss hitting the deer. At only 35-40 mph, it would not have
been enough to just go "straight through" the deer. I would have hit it mid
section and gone down anyway or even worse possibly flip over the bike from
impact and could have hurt my back.
Finally put this vid together. Damn baby deer ran out in front of my
buell.. Bike was totaled and I walked away with a broken ankle and road
rash to arms and legs. Bike suffered frame damage and entire left side. Got
a new buell one week later :)
Ride Safe out there! Always wear full and proper gear! I know I'll be
wearing a full jacket from now on!
Live to Ride! Ride to Live!

Buell XB12s 0-100 km/h + camera loose
Kleine Testfahrt, am Ende hat es die Kamera einfach abvibriert!!!
Hier mal die Beschleunigung der Buell XB 12s 0-100 km/h getestet.
Insgesamt ein sehr geiles Fahrgerät mit hammermäßigem V2-Sound.
Der geringe Drehzahlbereich ist für nicht Chopper-Fahrer etwas
gewöhnungsbedürftig und die Motorvibrationen sind für den GoPro-Saugnapf
nicht so angenehm wie für den Fahrer.
Aufgrund der Ergonomie und des Leistungsbandes für die Rennstracke nur
Modell ist XB12Ss Lightning von 2008

A short ride around the block with the GoPro mounted with their suction cup
mount. This mount does a much better job than the handlebar mount but the
camera still vibrates a good bit.
The Boost controller is set to
~15psi in every gear.
The bike is running a bit rich at that Boost level which causes the couple of
stutters during hard acceleration at 2:35 and 6:10.
The slipping clutch is evident in the 4th and 5th gear pull at 6:12.
The GoPro picks up an occasional rattle noise when the intake plumbing
slightly vibrates against the tank cover (what the GoPro suction cup is
At 8:58 a guy in a white SUV asks what kind of bike it is and at 10:08 and
12:48 I talk to a guy riding a Triumph. He asks if it's a 500, haha!
At 10:40 a woman tries to cut me off.....Grrr!
