ANALYSIS & Damage Assessment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQRv1H9_v4A
I hit a buck (had 2+ in. antlers) on my 04 GSXR 1000 on June 28, 2009.
I did not crash, but the bike was totaled. It literally jumped right in front of me and I had no time to react! In the analysis (link above), you can see the deer was only on cam for 6 frames which is 6/30 or 1/5 of a sec! Therefore, speed had nothing to do with impact.
Factors to consider (in debatable order of importance):
1. Speed: a) at speed limit would only have had .5 sec to react b) going faster *I* would have evaded... could have hit someone else
2. Momentum: a) accelerating out of the corner b) not enough time to let off
3. Angle: Bike was almost all the way leaned over
4. Deer mid-air: a) less resistance b) not high enough to knock me off and kill me instantly
5. Deer impact location: Only hit neck, not body
6. Deer angle: Jumped from -right- side while I was leaning -right- into it
7. Deer weight: a) approx. 100 lbs (45 kg) b) not fully grown buck yet
8. Ride position: Usually hang off bike, but was taking it easy
9. Frame sliders: Protected leg from tearing off
10. Exhaust: OEM (not shorty) prevented carcass from hitting rear wheel
11. Post impact: No car in oncoming lane
12. Wobbles: Violent steering caused front wheel to lift off ground
13. Bars: a) throttle hand came off b) if left hand came off... whiiiskey throttle!
14. Corner: Caught bars and dropped front just in time to turn, avoiding woods
15. Full gear: Deer brushed knee- no injury
16. Camera angle: a) cam tilted too low b) if normal, impact wouldn't be visible
17. Rider behind: a) avoided spinning deer in approx 1 second b) didn't swerve
18. # of riders: 10 approx 1-10 secs ahead and 5 approx 1-10 secs behind
19. Following distance: Deer jumped in between 2 riders
20. TIME UNPREDICTABLE: a) time the deer jumped b) time i was there that day
I rode the bike for another 45 mins until I had to shut it off to prevent engine damage because the radiator was busted. I survived without a scratch. The deer was still in mid air as it's neck/shoulder was sliced by my right fork and brake rotor. Then it busted my frame slider all the way back, brushed my knee (leaving fur in the velcro), and flung off the Exhaust, when it made like a top and spun to the other side of the road, leaving a blood trail over 50 ft. The 2 lines of blood keep intersecting, which show how much the deer spun.
Lastly, I want to mention that my right is a wide open field. There's 1/4 mile before woods. Deer heard us coming at least 10-20 secs before the first rider passed. If it did not hear us coming from miles away, then it had to have seen the other bikes go by. It tried to go between us... This stray deer ignored all instincts! Freak accident and nothing else! If you think slower speed would have avoided impact, then watch the analysis. If I was going faster, I would have avoided it entirely and the guy behind me could have hit it too.
Am I lucky I didn't die or am I unlucky this shit happened? Many things in life cannot be controlled...like cancer. If you try to figure out why it happened, you'll never get anywhere. Don't ask why, don't let it affect your outlook on life, just try to keep calm and carry on!

Road Rage Incident Biker and Chav in VW Golf fighting
Crumble heads out to do a quick walk round of his new Tiger 800 and some
dickhead in a VW Golf decides to try and get up in his grill. This video
contains a lot of swearing and some violence. If this is going to offend
you, please watch something else...
This Is Why I Always Ride With A Camera - DMV Harassment
Before critiquing me, just try to think about this incident from a
motorcyclist's perspective before calling me "impatient" or "in a hurry."
If you listen to my voice when speaking to her, I am clearly calm and not
angry or overly-irritated. However, the erratic and unpredictable driving
by that van is highly serious to us motorcyclists, as it puts us at great
risk. When she stopped me in the middle of a green light, my first thought
is "Shoot! Any second I could be rear ended by a distracted driver and
killed!" This is why I made that move to the right both times. I wasn't
trying to pass or be aggressive; I was trying to get to safety because the
moron driver kept stopping when they shouldn't have. I honked the horn to
make all drivers around me know where I was, and it is legally warranted
when in dangerous situations like these. I don't have the same protection
in a steel cage that cars do. I have to take my safety extra seriously.
Please think on that before judging my actions from a non-biker
perspective. I want to raise awareness about the level of alertness and
vigilance motorcyclists have to maintain on a daily basis. More consistent
video uploads will be posted when my channel goes live in August.
Second, I will concede that my following distance in the first turn could
have been slightly larger. While I maintain that I kept a safe distance, I
would have allowed for an extra half second or so, had I been able to do it
Thirdly, please know that this video is not about me being perfect. I am a
human and I make mistakes all the time and admit them. Even if you believe
that I rode like a complete idiot, this video is mainly about the DMV
worker overstepping her bounds and threatening me when her position
warrants no such action. It was harassment, no matter how you look at it.
Finally, I am open to your opinions in the comments. If you read through
them, you will see many debates and disagreements. I only ask that you be
respectful. I have left up a few battered trolls to make a fun example,
but seriously, keep it professional or I'll just ban you. I don't need
filth on my page.
Last note: for those of you who will say that I should have given the
drivers license applicant more grace because they are new, I have this
response: if you are supposed to be taking a test that authorizes you to
operate a motor vehicle on public streets, you should already be competent
enough to drive that vehicle smoothly and correctly. If you can't do that,
then you shouldn't be on the roads with the potential to get a lot of
people hurt or killed, including us motorcyclists who are the most common
victims of driver unawareness. If you can't handle it, then it's back to
parking lots, driving school, and coached driving until you're ready.
Getting and keeping a license is an earned privilege, not a given right.
I'm adding the California Vehicle Codes related to this video. The driver
easily violated these three codes, and probably many more. What's worse,
the DMV worker admits in the video that she took the wheel and caused this
herself. She should know better.
"CVC 21717. Whenever it is necessary for the driver of a motor vehicle to
cross a bicycle lane that is adjacent to his lane of travel to make a turn,
the driver shall drive the motor vehicle into the bicycle lane prior to
making the turn and shall make the turn pursuant to Section 22100 [general
"CVC 22100. Except as provided in Section 22100.5 or 22101, the driver of
any vehicle intending to turn upon a highway shall do so as follows:
(a) Right Turns. Both the approach for a right-hand turn and a right-hand
turn shall be made as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or
edge of the roadway."
"CVC 22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed
as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic...
No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway so as to
impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic unless the
stop is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law."

Motorcycle Hits Kangaroo | Caught On Chase Cam
Location: Mount Glorious, Queensland, Australia.
Just a day riding the twisties and my mate got an unlucky surprise by a
kangaroo. It was too late for him to react, and all he could do is to go
straight. That ended up as a head on collision with the 40~kg kangaroo
hopping across the road.
My friend survives with just a minor; 10 minute ache to his manhood.
However, the front end of the bike was severely damaged; headlights,
fairings and gauge-cluster were shattered into pieces, forks were twisted,
radiator leaking. And not to mention, fur everywhere!
The kangaroo died instantly.
I was on a motorcycle just behind the camera. Bike chasing was a CBR1000RR,
and the bike which hit the kangaroo was a GSXR-1000. We were riding within
the speed limit. Camera mounted on bike was a GoPro HD Hero 2 at 1080p
