Post Kangaroos 
 
What the fuck, I traded in my single cab Ford Ranger last xmas for a duel cab Ranger.

For the past 4 years, I haven't see a Roo hop across the road, seen them on the side of the road, that's all.

The last two nights while driving my new Ranger, Ive had two big fucking roo's jump right in front of me, full brake ABS braking with a little bit of steer to avoid the fuckers.

Plus I have some sort of snake living somewhere in the house, nature is trying to kill me. lol

Yep, roos are a nuisance. Moreso on the bike. Time to give ARB a visit Red. Our last trip down through central west NSW we saw heaps and had to dodge quite a few. We go bush quite a bit and dodging wildlife with a van on is no fun, particularly on dirt roads, so I decided the nudge bar wasn't enough and went to a full ARB bulbar. Too much plastic on the front of new utes to take the chance! I've seen what they have done to other new 4x4's and it just destroys the front of them if they don't have a decent bar.

Just recently stuck one on the front of my car too.
Too many of them hopping buggers around here.

Could end up like this chap who wanted to sit in the back seat, via the front windscreen:

Sadly the driver died.

Had a big red do a kamikaze into the front of my old F'er .. 1977 F100

It didn't have a plastic front {besides the grill}, it had steel supports behind it that were bent into the radiator which was pushed back onto the fan ..
So I made a steel bullbar .. never had another roo jump out on me ..
BUT .. EVERY FUCKING time I returned from Bourke to Brewarrina {at night}, at least one would attack the passenger door ..    

Don't put TOO much faith into an aluminum bar .. seen too many of them fold up & back onto the vehicle ending up immobilizing it ..

That's why I went colour coded steel. Had an aluminium one once, bent like a bit of plastic.

Have hit a few in my time, mostly wallabies but never on a bike (touch woody) .. hit a 3 parts grown roo in the hk once doing 70 mph, it took off up the road in the same direction and got it square on its butt with the pointy corner of the bumper ... oh shoot !! pulled up straight away and checked the damage, there was no damage    ... was the last time it took on a HK Holden

We were only talking of this the other night at work...
The amount of Kms we do in work cars at all hours of the day and night, to go and relieve crews on Trains etc.
We don't get too much Roo Damage. See heaps of the bastards along the roads. But the mongrels appear to be road smart....   
Gladstone to Moura...More so from Biloela to Moura is a bad stretch. Big Eastern Greys everywhere along that road...
Smashing the bastards all the time on the Trains.....Weirdly. Because the trains are louder and slower yet the dumb bastards don't seem to clear the rails in time...

Yeah Robo .. that is bloody weird ..

The amount of K's I've done in trucks & cars & bikes ..

Roos tend to move less & committed kamikaze more so with the trucks than cars & bikes .. admittedly trucks don't don't brake or swerve, but still ????

Must be a whale thing ..their way of beaching themselves ..

I see the stupid things all the time hope over the rail corridor fence and head straight for the cess of the tracks only to stop and crawl over the rails...
Bang....To slow..   
Stupid fuckers could hope clean over the cess and rails in one bounce if the wanted to..
