Just thought i'd share, I was out for my usual blat through the pine forests surrounding Mount Gambier. I was sitting on "around" 110 (honest occifer) and in the distance i could see what looked like a roo on the side of the road. As i got closer, i could see that it was in fact a very large wedge tailed Eagle standing on top of a roo carcass. ( The eagle would have come up to my waist if it (and i) was standing on the ground - I'm 6ft tall). As i got closer, it took off (looked like slow motion as it was so big) and flew away from the road. Cool, i thought. Until it changed direction and flew straight at me. If i hadn't ducked, i reckon it would have flown smack into the side of my helmet. It felt like the opening scene in star wars (and space balls!), you know where the huge ship flies overhead. It literally went dark as it passed overhead. Neadless to say, i shat. All i could see was this heee-uge beak and massive talons coming towards me. I was thinking it will be interesting to see how my AGVSport jacket holds up against the deadliest bird in australia! I'm kinda glad i didn't have to find out. I like to get back to nature, but that was a little close for comfort! Between that and the two stupid emus that ran out in front of me after that, it made for quite an interesting (pucker factor) ride!
