Close encounter of the Bambi Kind!

On my way to work on a road I had seen deer on before and I was scanning for them. She came up over the guard rail no more than 30 feet in front of me and bolted left - I heard the tail tick against the front fairing as I went by behind her.

Any advice on how to get a heavy crease out of your seat?

Re: Close encounter of the Bambi Kind!

You might want to replace your seat with a McLellan saddle. There's no way to put a crease in this - (Sorry, I tried to paste an active link and it wasn't accepted.) Anyway, glad it was, as George Carlin would say, a near hit. Those "horned, highway rats" do have a way of pushing the pucker factor.

Take care,
