Be careful on the early morning blasts folks!

Post by chr1s » Sep 7th, '19, 11:58

Barely a mile from the house yesterday, around 06:45am and a deer took a fancy to my new car....hit it around 45mph, came out only a few metres in front of me, absolutely no chance to even lift my foot of the accelerator. Luckily this time I was in the car and not my bike...I still suffer to this day from that one and it was way back in 2007!!

Didn't even stop?

Even if not to ensure the poor thing was actually dead, then to ensure the remains didn't kill the next person that came across it (maybe a biker ......)
Of all the things I have ever lost, I miss my mind the most .....

Handle stressful situations like a dog - If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away

No Mr moose I didn’t fancy foraging around in the field with my first aid kit to see if the fecking deer was ok..In my defence though, I considered the down CT system at Derriford, that I was en-route to, of greater importance.
