Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I was on my way into work last night at about 9.50pm. I'd just come out of one of my favourite roundabouts and headed off into the darkness.... I couldn't brake or I would've overloaded the front end and faceplanted into the blacktop. I turned round and scooped the corpse off the road, checked my bike over (a bit of paint chipped of a crash bar and some blood & fur round the bike) and carried on into work. It happened 3 miles from home, another 17 miles into work.

One of the nurses at work, a roly-poly Ghanaian lass who likes cooking, said that I should've strapped it on to the pillion seat and bought it in so she could cook it! That would've been a very, very nice meal! tongue

I hit a roe last year in the car (at about 60)| - knackered the valance thing at the front. Would've probably been far more injurious on a bike. Buggers're rife round here after a few mild winters. I mean, I like 'em well enough as critters go. But since the great deer strike of 2015 I've had to up me "lateral scanning" considerably.

You are lucky that didn't have you off and/or do more damage.

As an aside:

We found one dead on the side of the road near home a winter or two ago in the freezing cold - my wife decided to haul it home (stiff, bungeed onto a sack barrow - it was well frozen!) and gut it. We left it to 'hang' for a week in the garage and then it got butchered into lumps for the freezer. It tasted good.

To strap one onto a bike I reckon you'd need at least two bungees if not more...

My mate hit one before Xmas on the a47.   He somehow managed to stay on but bent his forks and broke his mudguard and belly pan. 

They are dangerous little buggers!

Glad you're ok. Lucky you were doing some speed, or it could've had you off.

Would definitely have made it ride pillion, and eaten it. Well done on staying upright!

There's more meat on them than you might think, worth the effort of chopping it up etc (if you like that kind of thing).

I can't really talk as the wife butchered the one we found!

Don't really know, wikipedia says they can also be called 'barking deer': they certainly do make a very particular barking noise.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muntjac

As far as I kinow they are a non-native species that was introduced into park land in the 18th century - in the east of england they are everywhere, not just in rural areas.
