A friend hit a deer at high speed. He survived with a few broken ribs. No road rash thanks to ATGATT. He will be OK. Lucky man.
He told me he tried to keep the bike straight prior to impact rather than trying to swerve to avoid the deer. Going for a straight impact would reduce the chance of injury, and most often the deer would run away prior to impact. Is that correct? What do the wise men and women in this forum say?
