Watch out for deer

There are over 20,000 deer - auto crashes every year in Wisconsin. This was mine. It's very unnerving. On country roads they come out of nowhere. This was at about 5o mph not counting the last second panic braking. Amazingly the deer ran off. He survived the deer hunt season just to run into me. Now comes the negotiations with the insurance company. Hopefully I can hold out for OEM parts. Not sure how that works. Frunk hood also has small crease. Bummer.

Glad it wasn't worse. I watch for them closely, especially on my bikes.

Up here (and maybe where you are too) moose are an even bigger worry. Damn swamp donkeys are nearly black and at dusk/dawn almost impossible to see coming out of the woods.

You can consider yourself fortunate. People have been killed when a deer comes through the windshield and thrashes around inside the vehicle. Not to mention loose of control. My county and the one next door lead the state in car deer crashes. I never ride my Harley later in the evening after September for that very reason

Wow! Glad that you're ok. That is what matters most. We can complain about the insurance process another day.

Well cars in the shop. They said it may take 3 weeks just to get parts. They promised it will be just like new when they're done. This place has a great reputation. When I told my insurance agent where I was taking it they didn't even ask for an estimate. I told them I wasn't worried about the time just the end result. Thanks for all your well wishes.
I'll let you know what happens.
