    I think the problem with those deer whistles is that they clog up pretty quickly with bugs.... I have heard that when clean they do work. I don't have one on my bike but I am planning on doing the headlight wiring up grade to get more light on the road.

    Hm... I recently highsided my Hawk at the track. Simple case of overcooking the first corner after the straight - I hauled it down from 95 to about 55, but still went wide and highsided as I hit the dirt/grass. No real injuries to me, but unfortunately the gas tank is dented because a clip-on slipped back, the radiator is bent, and the speedometer was destroyed...

    Sign up for the email listserve at www.hawkgt.com, the longest-running Hawk owners' community online. Between the listserv, this Forum, and eBay, you're set for parts.

    Sorry 'bout your run-in with the deer. Glad you're not injured and that the Hawk was in good enough shape to limp home.

    If you're in CA, go to the San Fran Bay area. Nothing but Hawks around there!

    started a topic I can't beleive it!!!

    I can't beleive it!!!

    I decided to join the forum today! I have never seen another Hawk on the street and I have been riding for about 8 years.

    Last night I had my first accident on my Hawk as I rode in the late evening on a dark secluded street. I was cruising along at about 55 and saw a deer caugt in my headlamp. To close to stop, so a quick swerve and all was O.K....for about a half second when I hit a second deer square on. It was like riding through a brick wall.

    Fortunately for me, I sustained a rather tough knock to me marbles. But other than that I'm fine. I rode back and found the poor soul and there was nothing I could do. It did die instantly and I feel sooooo bad.

    The hawk, however, did sustain damage but not nearly as much as I think it would have hitting a deer at 50 MPH. Front fender is complete but many stress fractures and chipped paint. I suspect a hoof punctured the line to the radiator as coolant leaked the whole way home. I have not had a chance to look at it completely, but am happy that I lived to tell this tale.

    Who better to appreciate this than fellow Hawksters.

    P.S. what a machine. I love it!!!
