Last Sunday after riding approx. 800 miles home from Hot Springs, S.D. and aprrox. 3/8 of a mile from the house the inevitable happened. After two 180 degree turns by the Doe and a short front wheel skid that I was able to immediately correct. The V tried to bring home the bacon...errrrr venison....LOL.
After doing a complete safety check today I found zero damage. Even the brake discs were right on the money.
I have now struck three deer with three different scooters in the last eleven years. All within three miles of the house. Add two more with the car and jeep which were in seven miles of the house.
Damage to the scoots total. one mirror, one brake lever and one plastic side cover. Damage to myself not including shorts, one sore leg when struck broadside.
Glad you are safe and sound Bob. Them 4-footed foresters are EVERYWHERE in our fine state. We need to kill more of them. With guns not bikes!
So the Avon D's are about shot eh?
I was almost home. The next driveway was mine. When I started the front wheel skid I released the brake and rolled on the throttle. It brought me straight up. I think that was more of a concern than the Doe. I ha already peeled off a lot of speed.
off topic @ Siyeh
I was talking to Jason tdi yesterday about TKC80's. He says the front are terrible followers. I might stick one on the back and see how it runs with the Avon up front.
I am still pondering the CADVR. decisions, decisions...lol
