Feeling pretty Lucky today
At 1030 AM this morning, I T-boned a deer at 55 mph. The woods were right up to the road, and the deer appeared so quickly, I didn't even have a chance to let up on the gas/brake. Just kept going straight ahead as best as I could. I was able to stay upright and never fell over. Damage is quite extensive to front end and the RT saddle bag flew off. Called BMW roadside assistance, and had it towed to the Dealer in Lakeville, Mn. Tow truck was there in about an hour, and he drove me about 30 miles to the dealer--no charge.
I must of slamed forward into gas tank, because my lower stomach area is a bit sore, but other than that---I feel pretty darn lucky today.
I will post follow up on cost of repairs. The whole front fairing is cracked, dealer said wheel is bent and radiator is just hanging. Don't even now where the headlight is. It's a mess.
