Now I have a claw mark across my front fender where a roo, one of 2 that jumped out in front of me last night, scraped its hind paw There is no point swerving on a rough and soft dirt road with road tyres, and the bike stopped damn quickly considering. I calculated that it would probably smack me in the face if I powered on and man those things are large targets to try and dodge... so I made use of the ABS and came to a stop with my front wheel half across its partners path. (who didn't flinch and just clipped my stationary fender as it hopped along across my front). I drive dirt roads a lot and have e-braked a few times for cattle, unexpected wash-aways, roos, etc in a 4-wheeled vehicle. That said, I was very impressed with the stopping power of the bike and have a bit more confidence on rough as guts dirt-road riding on the CB. I had seen quite a few roos out last night and was covering the brakes attentively, these 2 just blasted out of the bush at full tilt and got me slightly off-guard.
