    First road kill with our less than 1000 mile RT, and trust me she came out of the shadows so fast I didn't even have time to blink, all I could do it hold it straight and hope for the best.

    One dead Turkey about 4K in damage, all in a good days ride.

    Im blown away that its the same color and thats guys picture of his Turkey looked exactly the same as my Turkey hit just before I pulled it out of the fork area.
    I should of got a picture of it before I pulled it out.

    Surprising how similar the incidents are.

    So how did it end up costing 4k in damages?

    That's 4k in damage? My truck got front bumper, grill, running boards, lots of body work and the whole truck painted except right rear door bed side, tailgate and hood for 5k.

    Ya headlight I can see for the price... But dam... Should have kept that bird and mounted it on the wall as a trophy. I hope you put a turkey on the side of the bike... Go for the bowling triple strike!

    Parts alone list price is $2350, I didn't drive it home only 55 miles away and with kidneys, intestines, maybe a heart, etc etc packed into the radiators, Ill leave you all to imagine the look of that, YUK.

    So tow bill was 495
    Sense I cut the turkey in half her upper body hit my helmet and left some scratches along with a great load of guts.
    Every panel has to be striped off in the front to clean out the dam splatter of you know what everywhere.
    The bike smells like fresh turkey.

    PLus labor I can see it hitting around 4k. Maybe $3500 at the lowest.
    This baby has less than 1000 miles I promise she will not have one spec of turkey giblets anywhere.

    I will say this, when I got off the bike and collected my wits, made sure my wife was ok as I didn't know if turkey wasn't laying in her lap.
    I then went to the front of the bike and just could not believe the carnage I was seeing. My wife about puked when she saw the intestines hanging down from center of bike.

    Then I grabbed the turkey out of the inside of bike below headlight and scratching my head what the heck hit my helmet if the legs where still stuck inside of bike.
    As I first thought the entire turkey went up over the bike so thats when I knew bike cut turkey in half.
    The hit was so hard in the headlight area it flipped my side view mirrors off as you can see them hanging off in picture.

    Speed was about 60 at time of impact.
