  1. Not the furry kind, but the motorised version that runs in front.

    Heading from Bega to Canberra sunday afternoon and just before I hit Brown Mtn I spot some bikes approaching from the rear. I do my usual up Brown until the bikes catch up (damn slow silver VE Omega only doing 70). I wave the bikes past (I'm in my voodoo blue VE SS ute).
    Once we hit the top,the Omega takes off doing 125 to 140 so I let the rabbit get a few hundred metres up the road and follow.
    If anyone knows the road between Nimmitabel and Cooma, there is a short straight that has a dirt road signposted to the Peak road.

    As I come around the sweeping corner onto the straight doing $1.30 lo and behold on the side of the road is a green marked HWP with lights ablazing. Bikes in front slow, I slow, Turbo forester behind me brakes, cop does a u turn and fortunately the Omega realised he was done and pulled over in front of us.
    Bikes, me and the forester sat around the speed limit until Cooma. I had to refuel at Cooma and when I finished, who did I happen to overtake, but the rabbit (omega) doing a pedestrian 100km/h.

    Thankyou mr rabbit, it was fun.

    One thing tho, why didn't the bikes who overtook me up Brown get done, they must have been very lucky.
  2. I call 'em wood ducks.
  3. "Copbait" - Lets you take your mind off the speedo for a while as you see the disco lights on the horizon. :)
