Glad you're ok and you were not over 10k RPM when you hit the roo.

Are you thinking of getting a 3rd gen RR?

Damn Benny! Glad u survived your roo rat experience. Sorry bout the nuclear German arsenal. I hear the black market has plenty more. Hopefully you've recovered from any injuries you might have gotten.

Be careful your too important! What would this place do without your wealth of knowledge

For those that don't know, a medium sized roo is bigger than a joey.

Glad you're ok! Could have been a LOT worse if you'd hit it at speed. I almost NEVER ride at night in the mtn's here for that reason. We have much bigger things running around, deer, elk, friggin' moose(!!!), and further North, friggin' buffalo(!!!). So, glad you didn't get hurt.

Did they total it? Looks ok if the frame isn't bent. Maybe buy it back and make it a track bike?

Well, for your new one, might I suggest forged wheels (LOVE mine), and the Motorrad colors (ditto) in addition to the DDC?

How long did you ride the bike without a coolant container? Did not the engine overheat?

You do realise the container has no influence on the heat exchanging properties of the system. It's there to catch coolant that bleeds out under pressure and suck it back up when the pressure is relieved

I am glad you are OK; hitting a big animal is dreadful and dangerous. I assume 'roos are as unpredictable as deer.

In the States, carriers treat it is a comprehensive event, not collision.

I have learned that binning your bike is a great way to get a new one. But it typically hurts.

Yes, but was not sure if the damage caused any pressure leak and it's safe to ride without one.
