My BA's first road kill
Will living in the out it was only going do be a matter of time before my new BA scored a roo.
It always happend with a new car, eveyone said a new car is a roo magnet up here.
Travelling back from the movie's in Karratha at about 4pm it was pissing down with rain so i was only doing around 100kph when this great big F$$$$! fury roo jumped out.
Hit the brakes swerved right it ran right swerved left it jumped left.
Talk about your camakazi roo then bang, oooh that's got to hurt.
All i could think of was i hope it wasn't dead so i could get the chance to ring it's bloody neck myself.
Had a look at the damage, not to bad just the bumper bar pushed back on the left side about 1/2inch, smashed head light protector,bottom part of the bumper (black bit) bushed right in and a small dent in the bumper bar.
I wish smart bar would hurry up with a roo bar for the BA.
Last week i scored a bird in the right front fender, will they can't look new forever.
The Roo gave a big grin and hoped away with me and my trusty tyre spanner in-tow.
I still miss my EX
but my aim is getting better
