Three deer, Interstate Highway and rush hour.
I missed two of the deer(or they missed me) but the Vision took out the third. I know I am very fortunate to be unharmed except there may be snow on the ground before I get the Vision back.
So what did I learn?
1-Don't take all day to check your rear; head turn/mirrors. I was getting ready to change lanes.
2-If you think you have made it clear, deer can change direction very quickly and often. I think I could have closed my eyes and gone straight for a better outcome.
3-Not sure if hitting the brakes in traffic is a good idea but I will become better acquainted with my braking system once I get the Vision back.
4-The Vision is a really big motorcycle. Glad I wasn't on my Guzzi.
5-Remember #1 and #2.
6-I now grab the brakes when a leaf blows out of a roadside ditch, especially during low light hours. I'm getting better about that.
7-I laugh a lot more. It feels good.
Enjoy the ride, be safe, and remember #1 and #2.
