And for the record since no one brought it up I particularly enjoyed the little scream right before impact

Again, hope your ok man.

and now that I'm on my computer instead of my Galaxy III phone I can see that the head tube is jacked up.....this could be replaced if one had a tig and the skills for the job but looks like you have a parts bike now dang-it.

Glad you're OK.

Ok, so trying to cover everyone in one shot.

I was layered up for the cold, so only rash is on my left knee.

in total bodily damage is as follows: left foot bruised and sore, left leg feels like i pulled it or strained, left hip really sore from impact, have a very sore spot on my back from something in my backpack, my thumb got strained too. otherwise i tapped the back of my head just a smidge and im OK!

when i whomped the deer, i did a front flip (at least once) and ended up sliding down the path on my back (and backpack) about 20ft from site of impact. I found my bike down a 3ft embankment with the light still on.

bike damage: front fork is toast, head tube might be bent, both wheels are kinked. otherwise I did ok.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! Im hoping to not repeat this, but I will be back building my new bike before too long, I caved and got a fred motor.... so i need to find a bigger frame anyways.

And fwiw, the engine was running AFTER i hit the deer, which is why it went so far haha but at least the most unreliable piece of the bike's assembly still works!

Everyone else, keep riding safe and watch out for those little effers on 4 legs. I know it was a fawn but they are like beer kegs.
