    Default LLTR Question

    LLTR - bet there are many members on here who have no idea what that stands for.

    My question - does the Roo logo exist on any of the newer Moomba models or is it gone?

    change is inevitable. although roo was the mascot for many a boats over the years most of the new surf barges today never see a slalom set so it makes sense that he's "retired".

    perhaps skiers should have reinvented him from a slalom roo to a surfing roo.....

    "Just a wild ass guess...... Long Live the Roo?" you are correct! Kaneboats uses that in his signature.

    At one time the slalom Roo was changed to a wakeboarding Roo.

    Roo was the creation of "Erny", SC's graphic artist.

    I think it was doomed to be phased out after he was laid off.

    Does Moomba still follow an Australian theme? "No Worries" and all that - or is that pretty much gone too?

    Moomba should have a model special edition called the “Ned Kelly”

    Bloody kangaroos, most stupid animal here IMO, worse than sheep.
    Have to look out for them every night driving home, they see a car they'll most likely jump out into its path or into your door.
    Replaced my wifes FJ cruiser front bumper 1 mth ago after she collected one, had to straighten the bull bar out also but all good. Bush Ranger sounds better, Ned apparently had his shootout 100 kays or so up the road from here. Bit off topic..as you were.

    I remember everyone calling them “bouncer bars” when I was over there. “Bounces the Roos off the front of the vehicles . . . mate”

    Besides the roo was Kokapelli on a wake board shown on the aft end. All gone soon after. The roo did transform from a water skier to a wake boarder.
