I think it was an XS650.

Here is a vid of that bikes doing a water crossing with the low pipes. 4th bike to cross in the video:
Luv that clip, sounds awsome!
Here's my contribution to the high pipe stakes;

'74 TX650A 'Adventure'
1981 XS650SH "Tourer" [ For Sale - 2015], 1975 XS650B "Adventure" ['Kenny Krazyhorse'], 1982 XL500R 'Project' x2 [for sale], DT175 [new projects] x 2
Couldn't afford a 'GSA', so now it's an 'XSA' "I didn't do it! & whoever said I did, is a liar!"
