Almost Killed by an Ass this morning!!

Was heading home from work this morning and my buddy who lives in the same town as me was in front of me when he hit a Donkey in the road!! I saw his taillights go out and a pile of smoke so i veered to the other lane and circled back to check on him. He was ok, thought he hit a deer til we checked it out with a flashlight, its 4am when it happened. He said when we left the parking lot at work that he would be waiting for me to fly by him and I did the opposite, God put him in front of me and i am very grateful!!! posted a picture!!

Glad you are both ok. Friend of mine hit a dog once heading home from a ride. Was getting late afternoon when the group she was with stopped for a rest break. She decided to put on all her leathers, 20 minutes later hit the dog. Says the only reason she'll get back on a bike is she dont remeber leaving the last stop, or the next 2 months. Left the hospital 6 months after the wreck. Glad your friend was in a car ahead of you, and he is ok.

Wow! Glad things worked out as best as they could all things considered.

It ain't about where you live; it's about how you live. So, ride to live, Bruh.

Sorry to hear that about your friend, Rick.

Glad you are okay, animals are awful this time of year, seems like even the domestic and farm animals are in the road more.

I have always assumed that they stay on the hardtop to stay warm. It does retain a lot of heat after it has been exposed to the sun all day.
