    Coolidge Park.














    Nearly 3 yrs ago, I asked this feisty lady to marry me at the bottom of those stairs.





    And back home. Murdered about 4 million bugs while we were gone.

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Up in Michiganís Upper Peninsula this holiday day weekend with the family, truck and camper. Driving through all this beautiful country and seeing all the forest roads, lakes and campgrounds. Wishing I had the NC with me to go explore! I need to plan a trip back and ride all over here.

    It's a bank holiday in the UK, so no work for me today. With chores done in town this morning and my wife napping on the sofa to stave off a migraine, I've gone out for a random round trip.

    Here I am at Calshot, with the Fawley power station overlooking the river. Ugly building - I believe it's due to be knocked down at some point...

    took the NC to the car wash and finally sprayed all of the bugs off that i had collected from 6 states/2600 miles. Brought her home and removed the rear wheel to go and have the new 705 mounted just to find they are closed today in observance of our fallen military members, Happy Memorial Day to all!! :{)

    Hit a deer. My leg is pretty sore where we contacted. Ripped the saddlebag off and broke a lot of plastic. I'm mostly ok. I was able to get the saddlebag bungeed back on and went to work.

    Holy crap man! My biggest fear now seems to be animal paranoia. I hit a deer in my car down in Mississippi a couple years back running 70 on a back road on way home from the casino. Ever since then, when riding motorcycles, especially at night, I have an underlying paranoia of what may jump out in front of me around the next turn, or on straighter roads with higher speed limits. Deer are being seen all over the place now in the city where I live and you used to never see them. Seen several on my way home from work at night standing on the side of the road, had 4 cross the road in front of me literally a few weeks ago on the way home a few miles from my house. I hope I never hit one on a bike.

    Glad it didn't mess you up bad!

    X-RAY done, nothing broken. Lots of deep muscle and bone bruising.
    The bike seems ok, will need some new plastic and a new right side saddlebag.
    Unfortunately I finally got to test my theory or deer. Do what you can to avoid he situation and minimize the chance of an encounter, if deer are present slow down If it becomes inevitable that you are hitting a deer, stay on the bike, keep the bike upright and do not slam on the brakes. Use the inharant stability of the bike when at constant speed and upright to help you. Hold on, hands on grips and feet on pegs. If you can sideswipe vs headon do that. Maintain stability, after contact keep moving. Get clear of debris and flailing animals, start to slow down very slowly still using the gyroscopic effect to keep you up.
    My right leg had struck the deer and was in immense pain, so while I was slowing down I was concerned it was broke, I wiggled my toes, then moved my ankle. Then I could stop somewhere safe. Make sure you're ok. I was so I went back to the scene, found my saddle bag and silver side emblem. Never found the deer. Gave the bike a once over and went to work. From there I wasn't advised to go to urgent care.
