Welp onto the second s1krr...

Ladies and gents now that I am back on 2 wheels after my accident last year that totaled my month old '16, I am happy to announce that I am (have been) the owner of another '16 s1000rr. 4 fractures in left foot, banged up knee and shattered 5th metacarpal (yes I had all of my gear on except the riding pants, I had jeans on) couldn't stop me from getting back on it. Hopefully i'll have more luck with this one and no one will hit me with their larger than motorcycle vehicles this year

Glad to hear you're recovering and will be able to ride again. Would you mind telling what kind of gear you were wearing?

Welcome back. Do you have picks of the old bike?

Hope you're healing well.
I can sorta relate. I've totaled 2 bikes by hitting deer the last 2 years in a row.

Congratulations on the new bike. Enjoy!

Wow, that is super unlucky, good thing nothing major happened to you. You would think after hitting one, statistically your chances of hitting another are very low. Crazy.

Rode 35 years without coming close to a deer.
The first one head butted me off my Daytona 675R. I was out of work for 3 months.
His head actually broke my collar bone. His antlers knicked my neck.
