Bought my bike in November after taking my MSF class. '06 Boulevard M50. On Feb 22 had a deer come out of nowhere and plow into me. Was throttling from 3rd to 4th so going approx 30 mph. Next thing I know I'm sliding on the road and picking my @ss up. Never saw it again only 20 hairs in the fork. Lost the rear brake pedal and dinged up my front brake lever, front right turn signal and scraped the length of the upper exhaust pipe :frown2:. As for me was wearing full coverage helmet, still concussed but no sensitivities etc after I got up. Was not wearing protective pants/chaps so my worst injury was my right knee badly scraped. Nothing broken and minimal soreness so... I am purchasing chaps as well as some tech jeans before my next ride. Thanks for this forum to rehash and get feedback. Wish I had seen this forum earlier. Could have saved me some skin. All said. Bike is bake to working condition and can't wait to get out there.
