R.I.P. my VTR SP1

I have a deer separated with my VTR into two parts.
And am coasted to a stop without fall.
Nothing has happened to me thank God.


And this is my new VTR.


Ich habe mit meiner VTR ein Reh in zwei Teile getrennt.
Und bin ohne Sturz ausgerollt.
Mir ist nichts passiert, Gott sei Dank.

Und das ist meine neue VTR .

Amazing, it cracked the weld seam.
Glad you are ok.
Perhaps some parts are salvageable from the old girl.

Here are two pics of what my friend did last year. He got lucky, mechanically wise. The bike had a bent piston rod and he couldn't afford to fix it. Then this happened and he bought a Fireblade with the insurance money.

If you wanted a Superhawk/Firestorm, you could have just bought one


The important part is that you are well enough to look back at this and have a laugh in a few years. Motorcycles are easy to replace. People, not so much.




I'm always right.

I am glad, I still live this.
Yes, the motorcycle is already replaced by one other VTR .
Many parts have remained whole.
Thank you for her sympathy.

Ich bin froh, das ich noch lebe.
Das Motorrad ist ja schon ersetzt durch eine ander VTR.
Es sind viele Teile ganz geblieben.
Danke für ihr Mitgefühl.

I'd be scared s***less to hit a deer on my RC and came fair close at night last fall. After what happened to my 3/4 ton Sierra this spring I never want to be on a bike and hit one. Glad you're alright. Like the new bike too.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Glad you came out ok. Sorry about your bike tho. Sounds like a freakish but amazing accident. I would think hitting an animal that weighs at least a few hundred pounds would knock you off the bike, not coast to a stop like you said.
