Dead Dear

On my way to Monerey last weekend I had the misfourtion of running over a dead mostly flatened dear. The GT40 doesn't like speed bumps and this was much higher then a speed bump.

Re: Dead Dear

Richard,

Oh, crap, that awful!

I live on Skyline, lots of dear, I always worry about hitting one, running across the road, now I have something new to worry about.

Were you able to save the missing piece to glass back in?

Re: Dead Dear

ouch...sorry to hear that. Looks like the front clip needs to be fixed; any other damage that can't be washed off?

I do like your temporary fix

Re: Dead Dear

Well, to be honest, I think Richard got away very lightly considering what could have happened. Quite light damage and I don't suppose the repairs will be very,

er,

dear...

Re: Dead Dear

I know this is off the topic but I've rode in a number of SPF gt40s and Richard has the quitest 40 so far (inside) and has done a great job of making it a worthy ride. My hat is off to him for almost driving non-stop (1 hour of rest) from Idaho to Monterey and then going straight to the Baha Cantina with me as a passenger.
