reading all your ride-reports it seems you like river-crossings a lot, especially without a bridge or ferry. i canīt imagine riding for hours with wet clothes and wet body. Do you have special protection against water, and how long does it take to become dry again?
When you go in deeper water, makes the minor weight of the bike in the water riding easier or even more complicated, apart from slippery or stony grounds?
thanks a lot for your great reports,
