well, just a reminder here really to be careful when riding through the bush at night. yesterday i left work and thought i'd take mcarrs creek home. it was light when i set off from work, but by the time i started on mcarrs it was almost dark which i hadn't really figured on (bad planning on my part). oh well, so i was following a car all the way up there, which i thought was a clever thing to do in case of any wildlife. then half way up doin about 70 and BAM i just see this big white flash in front of the bike. the bike just ran right over it and really apart from a momentary softness with the suspension and minor wobble it didn't have any other effect which was lucky. so i turned around and went back to see what it was. a freakin big possum dead on the road, so i pulled it off onto the side feelin a bit gutted. was wondering whether that incident mightve turned out more dangerous for me, was trying to work out what i couldve done differently afterwards, and figured it happened to quickly to avoid, really the only answer was to not have taken the road in the first place.
