Deer pose a danger to a motorcyclist as motorcycles lack structural impact protection if there is a collision between the motorcycle and deer. Even if there is not a collision, there have been various Illinois motorcycle accidents which have occurred when a motorcyclist swerves to avoid hitting a deer. The motorcyclist can crash the motorcycle if the swerving causes sufficient instability.
