The only way to avoid those buggers is to be travelling slowly enough to brake.

Just my experience.
I agree, or have a set of metal panniers and kill the suckers. Mind you that was unintentional on my part, they did the normal thing and came at me from 90 degrees at a fast pace, I had time to select the small one before he T-boned me.

I was doing 100kmh and tankslapped for a while, when I gained control(staying upright and no oncoming cars) I saw him still rolling down the centre line.

Nothing can stop a roo, they are too dumb to know
