Deer oh deer...

If anything should convince one to wear an helmet, perhaps this should?

Perhaps being kicked in the head by a deer is precisely the sort of accident that helmets are good for, after all being hit by a hoof sounds just like the 'hemispheric anvil' tests that helmets are tested against!

You might also wear a sou'wester. (That would protect you against the rain, dear.)

Expensive mistake :shock:
Good job it didn't make contact with a suitcase that would've really unpacked him :?

Story alert:-
Some year ago on the tandem near Kirby Lonsdale riding along a lane with drystone walls either side.Two deer bounded over the wall from our left and only seemed to touch ground before bounding over the wall on our right,we were on a slight descent and were doing approx 20mph,they were about 5m in front of us but it seemed a lot closer,I'd no chance to do anything it happened so quick and they were gone.
A couple of miles further on we stopped and agreed it could've been disastrous :shock:

This topic reminded me of a forum classic from several years back . . . . .

I don't know if it was The Loch Ness Monster, a wild boar, a dear or what. It sounded very scary at the time. I have wondered if it was some recorded noise to keep animals off the railway.

Is this some kind of camp Scottish character?
