it's almost comical the way you see it's arm appear round the wheel before bouncing off. Scary shit though!

And Koalas may be bad but suicidal pheasants trump them any day of the week. We have it much worse ;-)

One of these Aussie road trains

will clean anything up,you have to get out of the way as they will not or sometimes can't stop.



Above: The white reflectors are high on the

front on the truck so at night the cars heading

towards you can tell that you are a truck and

then they can give you more of the road.

The stone gard over the windsheld is to stop

stones smashing the windsheld, plus if the

truck you are following blows a re-tread tyre

it is like a bomb going off smashing the

The Bull-bar is needed because in the vast

Outback of Australia the cattle station

(Ranches) are so big, hunderds of square

miles each of them and a lot of them do not

have fencing. So it is not unusual to find cattle

or sheep on the main highway.

The cow-catcher on the bottom of the Bull-bar

is to stop the cattle or what ever from going

under your truck and rolling your truck



Thats the rhubarb on the front there :lol:
