The most important technique for water crossings - A Video

Recommended Posts

Yes, during my first year of riding dirt bikes, THAT was the way we would cross large mud puddles and such at the expense of our "buddy". Get some and give some.

But then I switched to Trials and discovered it was un-cool to do it that way.. If you couldn't bunny hop the entire mud puddle, you were pond scum.... No brownie points for dousing your buddy and more :lol:

Besides, after a year of giving and getting a soaking, it was getting old...

It really only takes one rider with that inclination to infect an entire group.

It's like mono or strep, with many of the same concequences.

I disagree 2ply that game never gets old.

Brings a smile to my face everytime I see someone getting douched unless it's me of course. Especially bad when it's under 50 degrees. :lol:

happy seal,

If you don't like getting wet below fifty degrees, then you'll probably have some appreciation for this other riding tip:

Remember to dress in layers and don't forget the breathable shell.

Thanks for watching guys.

motorazer,

Thank you for the offer. I googled "Iowa." It turns out to be one of those states in The Lower 48. I determined that if we get that lost, we will have to invest in a GPS or just retire to the senior center permanently.

However, going there on purpose would be a dream come true. I looked at the IERA site as well. That organization is what we need in Alaska. Maybe you should come up north and show us how to get it done.

Mr. BigWheel

Chaconne,

Thank you for taking the time to watch. And from another dimension, no less!

Would that be the fabled "Fifth Dimension?" What's it like there? Is Rod Serling around?

I saw that one before.

He gets lured into the Brea Tar Pits by his "friends" and then struggles for five whole minutes without anyone lending a hand. That says something about that rider as a person, something about his friends, or possibly both.

If we had done that to Hollywood, we certainly would have helped him out.

Eventually.

When we were done laughing.....

Mr. BigWheel
