I have just watched a few of the vids and have noticed a few things.

You will notice in both of the vid posted, the rider was in a turn at a fairly generous speed. The rider had little or no time to react. Bikes seem to be under power, NOT on the brakes.

I am thinking that by not reacting to the impending collision, the bike was settled at the moment of impact and only the collision caused any unsettling of the bike. Due to momentum being so great, the bike plowed through the obstruction with very little variance in path of travel.

To further understand what I mean, imagine hitting a pothole in a mild curve while on the front brakes. The bike will swerve wildly instead of tracking smoothly. That is because of reduced trail which happens when you apply the front brakes and the forks compress.

Those were also relatively small ones... and if you hit the head/neck part of a larger one you will fair a lot better than smacking straight into the body...

Same concept behind the obstacle course at beginners MSF training. Just in case if you wanna rip through deers.

Interesting observation.

I was on the front brakes HARD when I hit my deer, hard enough that the rear was very very light, maybe off the ground...not sure, as it happened too quick. But hitting the deer stopped the front of the bike and the ass end continued up and threw me up and over the deer, and the front of my bike. Hit the ground pretty hard, and slammed my face (with full face helmet on luckily) into the road. I've often wondered if I wouldn't have grabbed the brakes if I would have just plowed through the damn thing.

I hit mine after just slowing down from 65ish to around 30ish.. held it upright was not on brakes or gas. Luckily hit her head as she turned around (I aimed just off her ass) and not the body. Kept it upright.

Like most things motorcycle, let the bike do its thing. It's the rider that causes the problems.

I like hunting for deer, but my old yellow bike seemed to attract deer - I had many close calls, but I stayed on the gas and kept my line every time and I never connected.

I remember about ten years ago there was a moto journalist (at least he had some articles about it) who hit a deer dead on with a v-max - supposedly it cut the deer in half - messed his bike up but he was ok..
this guy looked more like a glancing blow but.. still pretty amazing.

I was going to say gixxers rule but it looks like that's been covered. I used to have the b/w 2003 1000.. Now I know it can survive deer attacks but not so much mid 80's uninsured LTD rear endings

+1

But scrubbing speed if you can is still the best bet. Hitting a deer at 30mph vs 65mph is a much better option. I've always been taught to brake hard up to the obstacle, not to do any hard maneuvering, then let off the brake right before impact.

Its worked for rocks, turtles, and that damn armadillo in MO/AR. That one took the front wheel and turned it all the way to the left in a corner. But it straightened back out and the bike settled.
