Please be careful

Yesterday afternoon a local rider from Monroe,La area was riding down a wide open smooth road. A deer bolted across and he tapped his brakes some and missed the deer. But, he really pulled a BONER, he turned around looking behind him, and suppossedly pointed at the deer, I guess to show how close he came. Well, he veered into the other oncoming lane and hit a car head-on. Both were doing about 60-65mph. He was in very serious shape lastnight and I haven't heard a report today as they Med Vaced him to Shreveport,La. Guys and Gals please pay attention to the road ahead and don't worry about what you just missed.
In case of a tie, bikes always lose. I don't know the man nor his expierance.

I made the same mistake on my bicycle dodging a car that ran a stopsign. Luckily I only impacted at 20MPH, not 120MPH! Remember to keep eyes in front of you. I sure hope the Rider recovers!

That's an ~120mph impact. Good luck to him, it sounds like he'll need it.

This is the second LA state distraction motorcycle accident this month!

All states' DMV licenses needs major changes to increase attentiveness.
Friends, babies, snakes, deers, mp3 players, gps and cells...all less important than the impending obstacles in front of your vehicle.

Wow, misses one thing and then only ends up hitting something else.

Damn deer. Even if you avoid hitting them, they still can mess you up. I hope the rider recovers.
