Here's the next one.

This bridge (yeah, there's a bridge there) is in one of north Alabama's state parks. That is Sauty creek running over it, as it usually does after an inch or two of rain. Sauty creek serves as the county line for quite a distance.
[IMG][/IMG]
I took this picture about 50-75 yds. from the bridge and judging by how high all of the debris was piled, I'd say I probably woulda been about chest deep in water.

Nice job.

Not done with the KTM yet, but that tag is close enough I'll go get it on one of my other bikes. No heated grips or heated vest hook-up on them, but I can stand the cold for a little bit I guess. Looks like the weather will be gettin' shitty again for a few days though

Yeah, I was thinking about a dawn raid, but it looks like I would hit rain and bring it back with me.

SDS, just don't put the new tag near Debandi, he'll put the new tag up a railroad track in a tunnel somewhere.

Sorry boys, the missus said "lets ride" so ride we did. through wind and rain and three Ural breakdowns by the side of the road.
