DTM 1, Deer 010.0101

Well, John might use the tagline “you can’t stop a Deere,” but DTM and I beg to differ. In fact, I witnessed it. Moreover, DTM experienced it firsthand.

After a B-E-A-utiful drive East on HWY 12 through Washington and Idaho, which is memory lane for DTM because he used to work for a logging company in the area, we were just coming down into Lowell, ID when all of a sudden… BOOM!

HWY 12 Idaho

Apparently, deers like to jump into the light. Instead of standing still like an innocent little Bambi on the side… Bambi decided that the light was a tractor beam and he followed it directly into the front left side of DTM’s Harley.

Unfortunately, Bambi is no longer with us. But fortunately, DTM is alive and well, albeit minus a few bike parts and with a slightly tweaked foot. But like one person said when they saw the aftermath:

“You can replace parts, but you can’t replace a bromate.”

Luckily, all is well that ends well so my cheers to him over a brewski at Applebees was “Welp, here’s to being alive.” And he replied “Heres to parts!”

    @Big T – DTM said “you have to aim just right.”

    @Starr – Of course, we have the bromate system, which states “Never leave a bromate, unless it’s to get another beverage and even then… he should come along since you don’t want to hold his drink.”

    Yooo—Baby….Nice start. Hope it get better…Maybe Moose in Montana. Sure glad u have guys have right attitude. Between having sisters who want u two to hold each other hands, and thinking you guys need back up in the shitter.

    For one. I think you Bromates can handle just about anyting. So I say. Go with a bad ass attitude, and let the world come to you…

    ride on……………..

    Hey, if we gotta hit something, better a deer than a…..(you know, lost child from a campsite). Hopefully Bambi went quickly and didn’t suffer.
    About that tweaked foot… If you really injured it, all the brews in Sturgis won’t fix it, SO IF it starts to swell or throb, please get it checked (I’m happy to pay for it). Or at least wrap it while you stand on it. Definitely want you to be able to ride home under your own power.
    Gregory, keep the words comin’. You always make me smile.
    Love Aunt Gayle

    That sucks for you & the deer. Did you happen to bring a Hibachi Grill ? That could cut down your meal expenditures for a day.

    Had to contain myself Daniel when you told me on the phone last night! Wanted to freak out but our boy was watching every move I made and was soo concerned about his daddy! I reassured him you were tough and doing just fine, just needed to get some parts fixed. And as intuitive and serious as Jay can sometimes be he says, “Daddy needs to fix some parts on him?” lmao! I said no no Jay on the bike! Such a cute boy! We will continue calling each night! Have a safe and fun time and no more running over Bambi!

    hey everyone, well you all know me never a dull moment lol! i’m pretty much well over the excitement of deer hunting with my bike, of course i didn’t have the front row seats that LB had he might never be the same lol. anyhow all is well it rained cats an dogs on us this morning after i got my bike some what put back together, but didn’t rain any deer so that was good. we spent the day on I90 thru montana some really beautiful riding. everywhere we stopped my bike seemed to envoke some sort of conversation the leading smartass remark is “did we make steaks out of bambi?” i liked my comment to LB the best when he told me he’d get a room last night i said “good that way i can wash the sh%t off both sides of my pants!” so the question is what next?……….;-) hmmmmmm who knows, but you can rest assured what ever it is i’m gonna enjoy every minute of it! i’ll leave you all with my favorite part of my day……..as me n LB were coming into Wyoming tonight down I90 with the clouds all around us a clearing opened up an the sun came peaking thru creating the brightest whole rainbow me n LB have ever seen truely a sight that has to be seen to fully be appreciated……we pulled off n just sat there staring no words……….later LB said kinda weird how just as we enter Wyoming all that beauty came thru………must of been someodaddy missne saying hi;-)………life is what you make of it, it is up to you what you believe an what you believe in! i love my life an can’t wait till tomorrow.;-) ps daddy misses you jaydaniel!

    [...] or assumed prior to our departure this was sure to be an adventure as always with bromates! from suicidal deer, kamikaze birds, topless titties, way too much sausage, awesome music, sick bikes, and of course [...]
