Nice weather today, so I took my moto out for a run in the back roads. Nice elevation changes, beautiful fall foliage, twisty roads. I was taking it all in. Was on a road I never rode on... took my eyes off the road for 1/2 a second to look at my GPS. When I look up, the big brown thing (DEER!) ran across the road, 2 feet away from my front wheel. It was so close I could see the spots on her skin. I was going about 40mph.... I have full riding gear on.. helmet, leather jacket and pants, boots, gloves.... but a collision at that speed would most probably break a bag of bones. Scary!
