1st Emergency stop of the year!

Well, as we know, the roads are full of suprises. I was riding my local twisty country lanes yesterday, when 3 deer decided to jump out into my path, my heart missed a few beats. Luckly the bike stopped in good time. The deer didn't even look at me, they just went back into the hedge row! Happy days!

Deer are a REAL issue around my way. Absolutely a reason to ride with a margin of safety. I rarely ride at night, except on the highways, because of the same.

Be safe out there guys!

We've got the same problem here in Oregon. Glad you're safe. Happy Days.....on a lighter note....ever think about a "deer whistle". LOL That would be a great mod on the unparralleled beauty of the Brutale'.

Best,
