Motorcycle Hits Deer @ 85 mph | Helmet Cam

ANALYSIS & Damage Assessment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQRv1H9_v4A ************************************************************************ For more raw videos, like my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/AdrenalineProductionz ************************************************************************ 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!

Note: the person in this video was released from the hospital and made a full recovery. Johnny Strange goes riding in the canyons to film, and ends up catching more intense footage than he hoped too when he stumbles upon a crashed motorcycle and ends up finding the rider. twitter.com/strange001 From Johnny Strange - Any real credit for helping her goes to the Firemen and Medics, I appreciate the nice comments but I was just in the right place at the right time and anyone else would have done the same thing. I want to thank the Firemen and medics for there everyday work! Strangeworld01 uploads a video a few times a month to raise awareness for certain causes by doing action sports, I thought this video would be cool to put up to show people all the effort the firemen & medics put in on an everyday basis. As for the music, I don't have an excuse, I just liked the song. I listen to different music from Rap to Classical to Country on different days depending on what I am doing.

Deer jumps in to Lion Exhibit at the National Zoo DC
For more DC news stories go to www.katiemanning.com I saw a story about a wild deer breaking into the lion exhibit at the Smithsonian Park National Zoo on WashingtonPost.com. After watching the dramatic YouTube video, I ventured over to the zoo. Lucky for me, Fox5 was doing an interview with the zoo staff about the deer. I decided to take my chances and ask the zoo's PR representatives if they would also go on camera for me. They immediately agreed to help me. I learned that the lionesses have no blood on their paws, at least not directly. They left the deer alone as soon as they were called back into their enclosure. The PR rep told me that they are highly trained. They weren't allowed to finish their hunt main because the deer might spread diseases to the animals. The zoo sees a host of visitors wandering in from Rock Creek Park. Raccoons, fox, squirrels and pigeons frequently make their way into the exhibits, but this is the first time the lions had the chance to hunt live prey. At one point, the deer made an escape and jumped into the water cheered on by many onlookers. However, when the vets took the injured young animal in to be treated, it couldn't be saved. The vets euthanized the deer that night.





Motovlog #5 - I hit a deer! Deer vs. Motorcycle
While doing a quick mic test a deer and I cross paths, literally! I went back about 30 minutes later and walked through the field next to where the accident occurred. I could not find the deer. Hopefully, he/she was ok :) . Warning: This video gets really loud at 0:57 with plenty of NSFW language. twitter: http://twitter.com/akimbojackson facebook: http://facebook.com/akimbojackson instagram: http://instagram.com/akimbojackson Music: ♫ PASSiO & Filibusta - Wild Wild West (VIP Mix) http://youtube.com/watch?v=8BXmWnsP8jk http://soundcloud.com/passiomusic http://soundcloud.com/filibusta





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 30fps setting.
