Deer strike

Surprised it took this long after 20 years, actually it was bigger than a deer, really tall. I've seen one before but can't seem to find it on google.

Probably got down to 20mph before impact, knocked it over and kept the bike upright. This has brought me to an all new awareness it terms of target fixation, which I thought I had mastered. I suppose I could have swerved but it kept changing it's mind about which way it wanted to go. Had I guessed wrong I'd have gone down for sure.

Question is, I have (had) F4i forks, MT03 headlight and a Koso on there and can't tell if anything's bent but the front wheel is not bent. It is steering to the right though. Should I even bother telling my insurance? With all that aftermarket stuff on there the front end it almost totally different than stock. My instrument panel and mount is destroyed as well.

I don't think you can make an insurance claim without a police report.

I'd get something newer. Like I told the other guy, Super Duke, Tuono, Street Fighter.

Well done on staying upright. Yeah target fixation is a killer.
I wouldn't even bother with insurance, just fix it.

This scenario should be a comprehensive not a collision claim.

In which case your rates should not go up.

Got pics or evidence of the deer strike(eg. fur/blood)?

Damn Ditch, glad you're OK.

If the steering head is still straight, this should all be easily fixable.

I have my insurance coming out to see it next week, if he's convinced the forks are bent (and I'd have to think they are) I'll have enough to fix it for sure. It'll need a new dash, headlight, forks and a few other things but I have my stock parts to help with cost

Good move!

That's what you are paying for with every insurance premium.
