I knew a kid in college hit a deer broadside going about 80 mph and dumped on a long straight stretch of highway, Wearing a helmet but not leather he had the worst case of road rash I personally have ever seen and a broken arm.
A friend or mine from Kirksville was riding his Goldwing in Montana a few years ago and had a doe run into his gas tank. Tom and his buddy were doing 70 mph at the time. He, the Goldwing, and the doe went rolling and sliding down the highway. He ended up in the hospital for 3 days, the motorcycle came home in a box, and the doe ended up as coyote poop. He said, "thank God for helmets and leathers." He said the worst part was waking up with his helmet on backwards and thinking he was blind. He was a lucky man but has the scars to show for it!
