    Trophy is dead. Unknown if revive-able

    Headed to work this morning at a nice sane 55-60 mph when a Bambi popped up on the left from the river side and shot in to then started across.  I think I got down to 20-25 when the deer hit me at the front side of the fairing.  Ended up low sided and flipped over.  Thankfully a guy was right behind me and saw the whole thing.  In reality damage was minimal to me.  I have a broken toe (a chunk of bone came off my big toe.  Makes walking almost impossible, more of a slow lurching.  Also tore the AC in my right shoulder real good.  I have pics on my phone and will throw a few up after I email them to myself.

    I hate Mondays.

    Hopefully this works...  Oh and insult to injury--- While my spousal unit was there waiting for the tow truck some (lowlife) stopped to try and steal stuff!  He had my gloves in his hand until the wife drove up on him fast (she was parked in a nearby driveway) and told him he had best leave NOW.  Sweet...

     :431: At least you get to ride another day when you heal up. Such a sad sight seeing the TTSE all beat up. Get well soon!

    Hi rpeters549,

    Like everyone else Im real sorry to hear of this, but so glad you are relatively unscathed.

    Those pictures of your helmet clearly demonstrate the need to WEAR ONE !   :169:

    Welcome to the small group of us that have dropped their Trophy
    causing considerable damage, but have lived to tell the tale !  :028:

    Mine wasn't "ecconomical to repair", but after a 3 year break I replaced it with a new one,
    and while it might not be the right time yet for you to think about it,
    there are still a few new ones around, and some good deals to be had,
    if it turns out that yours cannot be repaired.

    Cheers  :821:
