Just a day riding the twisties and my mate got an unlucky surprise by a kangaroo. It was too late for him to react, and all he could do is to go straight. That ended up as a head on collision with the 40~kg kangaroo hopping across the road. My friend survives with just a minor; 10 minute ache to his manhood. However, the front end of the bike was severely damaged; headlights, fairings and gauge-cluster were shattered into pieces, forks were twisted, radiator leaking. And not to mention, fur everywhere! The kangaroo died instantly.
I was on a motorcycle just behind the camera. Bike chasing was a CBR1000RR, and the bike which hit the kangaroo was a GSXR-1000. We were riding within the speed limit. Camera mounted on bike was a GoPro HD Hero 2 at 1080p 30fps setting.
