Wild life is a high risk to riding in Australia. Especially during dusk and dawn. I learned it first hand. I hit a wallaby a few months' ago. I was my normal Sunday morning ride at 6am, had breakfast at 7am in my favourite bikers' café. Continued riding at 8am. Thinking it should be safe by then to enter more rural roads. A wallaby jumped out from the left road side bush. [A wallaby is like a kangaroo but smaller. Had it been a kangaroo, I probably would not be here talking.] It was so sudden that I did not see it until the last moment. I was doing 95km/h. I could not do much more than a reflex swerve. I was lucky. It narrowly missed the front wheel. However it still hit the left side of the bike. The foot peg was gone. The cowl broke in a few places. It's silvery grey hair was stuck in the crack. A large hole in my left boot. It also hit the swing arm. The bike shook violently. I was lucky. I managed to stay upright. [Later the repair shop supervisor called me and asked if I did not fall down. He could not believe it after seeing the damage. He replaced everything including the whole swingarm.] I was in shock, mind went blank and did not stop the bike. I kept riding for another 5 mins before I stopped. I checked the damage. I also started breathing again. I did not go back on that road again for a few months. When I went there again recently, I kept telling myself that I was lucky on that day.
