utah crossing

my first crossing on my 640, on my own so now fancy spray shots
it was not what l was expecting in utah in july, it was only knee deep but running very fast, walked it first picked a line and went for it, on the 640 it was a brezze

Thumb Water Crossings are COOL

Howdy All,

I like water crossings, here's some of mine. R1150GS, in Canada.


R80G/S, couple of miles from my home.


Testing the new Sidi boots for water proofness. ( Is that a word? )


Playing with the Montesa, a few miles from home.

Not an action shot, but ...

There's probably an interesting story here, but I'll be damned if I know. I came across this abandoned GS on a ride last year In Mendocino National Forest. Not a soul around. Since I was riding solo and not very experienced, it intimidated me enough to turn around, even though it cost me three hours extra riding.





For those in the area, this is the M5 crossing of the NF Cache Creek near Hough Springs.

Well the bike has cut deep down below the riverbed and perhaps the electrics or airbox got the water-fill? - I don't get it, I wasn't there.



I would have worked it out somehow - But what do I know, it is only a $15k ride

So, no one stays behind to protect it - GREAT Insurance risk I guess, or, it was stolen and they had no desire to stick around?...


Stolen, a 15k BMW bike, w/o side bags - as they were still in the motel with the owner???

Thoughts?

Checklist -

Wish I was there - 9 ( 10 was available, but I have some incredible rides coming up)

Glad you were having a great time - 10

Lighting on the water shots - PRICELESS!

Until Baldy or someone can fix this mistake I made, PLEASE post all "water crossing" photos on:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39214


To wit:
Docgonzo -

What a mess - your thread was so unused that when I did a SEARCH function it didn't come up in response to my review of the results of the list generated by my "water" and "crossing" query using the SEARCH feature - I should have scrolled past the first five pages of replies to my search query as at some point your dormant thread, one that was quit active until early January 2006, would have certainly become evident.



I discussed this issue in the first posts on my thread, and no-one cared to the level that you do. You have made it clear that 'water crossing' is your turf and I once again offer to allow the thread I created to have its contents moved to your thread and my mistaken thread to be destroyed.

Maybe Baldy can help?

In any event - I am done with this and could use some admin help in nuking my thread

Back to threads on Mexico and such - Sorry for the error advriders.
