This Harley belongs to this girl.
She very much was interested out enduro motorcycles.
In his day she tested 9 motorcycles.
We participated in hobby orientations competition.
After competition we showed it interesting places on a route.
Here we crossed water in both directions, helmets are near the photographer.

Take good care of everything under the waterlevel. Don't verget the wheel bearingss. They are NOT waterproofed!

No. 58 "Highway" in Taiwan?? Hmm ... wondering... What is the condition of the "back roads" in Taiwan??

Not me, but a friend's first water crossing on his (former) GSA in the Ouachita Mountains, Arkansas USA:

No.58 Highway is a nickname between offroad riders here, actually it's the upstream of biggest river in Taiwan, Chosui River( the Cloudy River)

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Yes, a few years back after heavy rains the landrover boys went playing. Water was too deep and fast flowing, landy tipped over and the girl in the passenger seat was trapped and drowned. Always go with people which know the area and conditions. My good mate is a mountain rescue leader in the area with a special telephone. The one which brings the rescue chopper down to you

The same friend also said "Oh I know another little trail. Only a couple of miles long. Easy stuff" Oh why the feck I still believe him I don't know









These "couple" of miles took us 3 hours to manhandle our bikes through one by one
