Two wheels... Trying to kill me
Almost hit a deer tonight, just after leaving the house for a short spin, two blocks from the great Raccooning back in August. It's a conspiracy, man! Fortunately I had the light on high and was on the hoods, so I saw it and was able to brake quickly. Missed by about 5 feet, it would have T-boned me had I not, which would have ended badly given my recent modifications. Last thing I need is to reshatter my collarbone and borked shoulder, or add antler holes. There was a couple walking their dog who saw it and gasped as I locked the rear wheel and swore, and my immediate thought was "oh, you have no idea..."
Anyway, deer have moved up a notch on the shit list, but raccoons are still comfortably in the top spot.

Bastards. Maybe mount a rifle on the handlebars. Is yours an open-carry/just-in-case/if-I-feel-like-it/spray-n-pray state?

@rallywrench this is the problem with deer and bicycles. Venison is not guaranteed...

@rallywrench More like 4 legs trying to kill you. Glad you're safe. Deer are not to be trifled with.

@rallywrench fuck racoons - they're top on my shit list too
I was riding motorcycles with my brother once and he got hit by a deer. He was going slow and stupidly tried to drive through a herd of deer slowly crossing the road instead of waiting. One panicked and ran sideways right into him. The deer bounced off and knocked the bike over. I laughed and chastised him for not waiting then we picked up the bike and kept on riding.
