Wow!  I've had close calls with dogs and pedestrians, but never a hopper like that one.   ;D  I'm sure your heart rate got a quick boost!

Close that one, the Wallaby would have left a mark for sure. Glad you missed him and I hate to hear you were banged up and you nice new bike as well.

We have a rider strike a deer around here almost every year, sadly last two years the riders didn't make it.

       Wow! :o :o  And you had specifically mentioned that in the previous video.

        If wallaby had been one second sooner in the space time continuum it could have been very bad  :( :(

I will do the conclusion video to wrap it up shortly but from now i will ride with that friggin expensive air bag jacket i purchased months ago and never really used it.
I was just riding t shirt style yesterday. that's not going to happen again and neither late runs on that road.
I knew they were about so I wasn't riding blind
