My wife and I just had a close call tonight with a deer on the big LT but it is still no match for a deer and so I thought it was time to ask if anybody has any thought on if deer whistles if it would work or not
John what name brand electonic one did you get I think I might still try something after coming so close to looking at one straight in the eyes last nightFWIW (and I read all the articles too) I have an electronic unit that I got at the RA rally in 2007 for really cheap. I have always turned it on in areas where I might see critters. Every deer I have approached has always alerted and looked up a my bike (as quiet as the LT is). Don't know if it was the whistle or not but I still turn it on just the same.
deer like humans hear Harley's coming a half mile away. That is why you have not heard of a Harley hitting a deer. I did have a friend cleaned off a honda 750 4 by a deer back in the 70s. Deer died at scene, buddy spent weeks in the hospital. Honda, toast.I think they must work! Several friends of mine that ride Harleys have them and I have yet to see any deer in the local coffee shop parking lot!:grin:
