Being a bike rider, these " forest rats " are a genuine road hazard, capable of killing you in a blink.

Deer are notoriously unpredictable when it comes to roadways, as many who have had contact with one in a car can attest. Many of my riding friends shy away from riding woody areas at dusk for this very area.

Recently, a fellow Valkyrie rider with a passenger hit one of these things. Amazingly, he kept the bike upright, dragging the thing many yards down the road before safely coming to a stop. Valkyries are massive bikes, with impressive stability, but he was LUCKY.

One of my favourite storytellers, Daniel Meyer, has compiled the story on his excellent site, but be forewarned, the pics show some bloody images of a mangled deer carcass, so if you have a delicate constitution, maybe you should GROW A SPINE or, just not click.
