As a motorcyclist, you have little room for error. You are mostly unprotected and often traveling at a high speed. Road surprises are unwelcome for any driver, but they are especially challenging for motorcyclists.

In this video, one rider is traveling along when a deer appears on the road. There is not enough time to swerve, and as you'll see, a collision ensues.

The rider reacts surprisingly well, but how about the deer? We'll never know.

Granted, maybe the rider was afraid of an attack by the deer. But still, it seems like checking on the animal would have been the right thing to do.
