Me vs. Deer (On my Supermoto)
“Me getting taken out by a deer. Was riding a Yamaha WR250X around 1pm on Fox Island,Wa when it happened. Ended up in the hospital for 5 days. 6 permanent screws and a plate holding my ankle together, 2 fractures to my shoulder as well as torn muscle. To top that off had massive swelling/bruising on my hip from landing.” –rodgazinya
