Well last night my flat mate and i went for a late night ride cause he had his thousand k service today and still had 150k's to get. For anyone who has ridden around Canberra they will understand the enormous amount of roos around. I had previously ridden down Cotter rd and brindabella dr (a nice twisty bit of road) and we decided to check it out at a nice slow pace. Every few hundred metres there were a bunch of roos sitting on the side of the road and i noticed that some are smart and run away from the noise and light but there are the odd few who try and beat the light or hit it(not sure yet) anywaymy flat mate had a close call and clipped a roo with his front tyre which i saw in my mirror. On the ride back i had a roo try beat my headlight so i broke hard and avoided it but that got me thinking if their was anything that would stop them and a km or so down the road i got the chance to try out my new theory of beeping at them and it worked like a charm, scared the s#%* out of the roo and it changed direction and ran away from me. Just wondering if anyone else has tried anything else like this?
