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!

Crazy motorcycle tires
Thank you for your time and thank you for watching. As you may already
know, Rhinotire is the best and the most efficient tire protection
technology in the world. It is much superior than all other competitors
like RUNFLAT or liquid sealers because seals multiple punctures
automatically with NO need to replace the tire after puncture - unlike the
expensive Runflats, Rhinotire does not affect balance, does not mess up
rims or sensors. It is the dream come thru for the bikers and racers. The
only down side is that the process of making a regular tire to a Rhinotire
is complicated and requires special equipment.
In that equipment a special polymer (RhinoPlex) is heated up to a very high
temperature, and then sprayed evenly inside a spinning tire. After cooling
off, the tire becomes Rhinotire. The polymer will not pill, leak, freeze or
move; it will seal the punctures automatically without air leak even from
multiple punctures in the same spot, will not affect the balance, will make
the tire safer and will reduce the noise by 30%.
The opportunities for Rhinotire applications are very lucrative. If you
have connections to any of the following: Government- Army, Police and
Fire, road maintenance, municipality vehicles and school buses, Fleet
vehicles - Rent a Car, Taxis, Armor, Ambulance, Telephone and television
companies fleets, delivery trucks, OEM - manufacturers of tires, cars of
motorcycles, truck and buses, mobile construction equipment, motor homes,
trailers, farm equipment, ATV and recreational vehicles. Insurance
companies - Keep in mind that Rhinotire drastically improve the safety,
just like seat belts and ABS Breaks
Rhinotire is the ONLY technology in the world that allows you to puncture
proof tires on demand regardless of the brand or size.
Currently we are looking for investors to place properly this exciting new
technology on the market. In the mean time, it is my pleasure to present
you the start up package and opportunity to become a Rhinotire dealer for

Optional Spare parts package USD 450
Optional Metal brushes USD 200 per 100pcs.

Teen Hits Deer - 5 Hours After Buying Car!
Jarod's parents bought him a brand new 2009 Toyota Matrix as a graduation
present at Lithia Toyota of Medford, Oregon. He was selected by the
dealership to receive a free Flip Mino HD camcorder to make a video of his
new car experience.
Five hours after leaving the dealership, Jarod (17) was driving with his
two friends along a beautiful deserted stretch of roadway near Mount
Shasta, California when, out of nowhere, a young white tailed deer sprang
from the bushes and jumped in front of the car. Unable to avoid the deer,
Jarod hit the animal in a head-on collision. The camera captures both the
accident and Jarod's reaction to the damage to the brand new car.
