New record for me .Only had my Tiger for just over 3 days and hit a deer coming back from work last night. Doing 60 when I saw it, grabbed my brakes then hit it square on. Somehow I managed to stay on the bike. Poor Bambi had a broken neck, bike had broken mudguard. Feeling very relieved I didn't drop the bike.

Sounds like you were lucky, could have been nasty. Shame about the deer though.

It is sad about the deer. Hate seeing animals suffer.

Sad, but its why I wont ride up the Forest of Dean at night, Deer are one thing, a fully grown Wild Boar is another, pretty sure the Boar would win

Bad enough in the car, but hitting one on the bike. Blimey!

Was it instantly dead or did it do the stagger into the bushes and completely vanish thing they do?

I think it died pretty much straight away.  It's neck was twisted right round. It was moving it's hind legs but I think that would just be reflex.
