I normally never ride at night but I worked all weekend and wanted to try out my new highway pegs that just installed and also see how good the LED headlight was going to work. I was heading home on a 50 MPH 6 lane road with no other traffic in sight. I only had the low beams on, which ended up being a mistake because it was fairly dark but even so the headlights seemed to work pretty well. All of sudden, directly in front of me centered squarely in the center lane where I was , was the deer. I decided to make a quick counter steer to my right and hope the deer didn't decide to go that way. I didn't think there was any way I could miss him since he was so close when I realized what was happening. Anyway, as I swerved to the right my left leg brushed and bounced off the deer. I rode home and checked out the bike and couldn't find a scratch on it. I am one lucky son of a gun and I'm pretty sure the deer is still in one piece also. Hopefully we will have both learned from this. I'm not doing any more night riding and hopefully Mr. Deer will learn to stay the **** off the highway!
