    Accidents while carrying

    Today I hit a deer a 60 mph on my Motorcycle. It was bad my gun was in tour pak tour pack and many other peaces where every where.
    When EMT's arrived I was not able to move . I told one of them My gun was laying out there some where and need top be recovered.
    They were great about . The found it secured it and gave it to LEO. My wife arrived on site the LEo gave it to her with out a word.
    She told me. Seems some LEo do understand.
    Ruger Sr9c not a scratch 2011 Harley RGU totaled , I'm going to be laid up a bit.

    Sorry about the accident Smitty. Deer accidents can do a lot of damage to a car, let alone a motorcycle. Glad to hear that the LEO was cool about the pistol. And here's wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Wish you a speedy recovery. Deer and cattle are what scare me the most when riding at night.

    Hope you heal fast, 4 years ago we had someone near here hit a deer while on a bike and he was not so lucky.

    Wow.

    It's odd, I hunt them in the winter, but as a fellow biker, they are my worst nightmare. I fear them critters more than cagers when I'm on the road at dusk.

    Glad you're able to relay the story here! Seems people are finding out that a concealed handgun is the least of their problems when their driving/riding world turns to excrement. Pretty common for these good folks that are EMTs and first responders to be good guys.

    Rest up and look for good venison recipes on the web.

    That's really good SA, in spite of a major shock, shows you've got your head screwed on right. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    In my EMT classes we were taught to simply put the gun with the rest of the patient's personal effects. No need to hand it over to law enforcement.

    Hope you have a swift recovery.

    Sorry you crashed, but glad you can post. The hoofed rats are thick here, got them eating apples in daylight in my front yard. Heal fast and don't sweat the bike. I have wondered if I should wear an ICE device theICEdevice.comwith a "find the gun" note in case I can't do it myself. Even dead i would hate for the wrong guy to find my .45
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Speedy recovery there Smitty, being a motorcycle enthusiast myself, critters are truly a hazard. I don't know if the wife ever rides with you but, if she does I know it was a great relief for you she wasn't on this ride.

    Fast healing and back to wheeling!

    Years ago a couple I knew were struck by a deer on a motorcycle. They were going through a small cut in a hill as a deer jumped down on the road. It landed on top of them. Killed him, she was really hurt. You're lucky, get well soon.
