Holy shit! With deer! That's scary! The guy in the 2nd video panicked hard...even missed the brake lever the first time and grabbed a handful.

I came up on a deer at Road America in kettle bottoms (back straight). It was a baby deer, and thankfully I saw it on the side of the track bouncing around in the grass so I put my hand up and slowed down. My buddy was behind me and had no clue why i put my hand up, so he blasted by me at WOT...went about just a few feet away from the deer. Then the corner workers saw it and put out the red flags. Took about 20 minutes to catch it and help him up over the fence. Thankfully no incidents caused by that deer.

Hahaha...I doubt he weighed more than like 30-40 lbs. He was a tiny baby deer.

Shenandoah circuit has a fair number of walls close to the track, and while they have made some improvement on Main, they still can't seem to keep the deer off the track.

IMO NCbike is the best learning track, simple and fun. VIR has the best facilities, multiple configurations, and is just plain fun. NJMP is somewhere in between, but is heavily used, and occasionally has some aggressive riders. I've never ridden NYST or PIR.
That was crazy!

Over here at Laguna Seca there are always squirrels running around the track. Sometimes there will be geese nonchalantly crossing the track while riders are going at full speed.

Haha...We had a race about 2 years ago where the lead 6 riders all ran over a squirrel that had darted into the track. There wasnt much left by the time he got under the 6th bike. We actually had a bunch of t-shirts made up "Remember Fluffy" and had a clip-art squirrel with x's for eyes on it :-p

Barber Motosports in Birmingham Alabama is an incredible venue. It is a very nice track with some great elevation changes that hosts everything from Indycar races to vintage motorcycle racing.

It also has a world class motorcycle museum.
