Not technically on the Dragon, but pretty close, as in Tabcat Bridge.
Needs the 'High Pipes' for that kind of water crossing.

Whoever you are, please yank that sticker off your bike (how about just ride a different bike) 'till you learn how to ride more safely, at the least?

So let me see if I understand this.. he rode off the edge(of something) into the water, casually took off his helmet, hung it on the mirror, then swam to safety?

I remember reading about this dunking. The fella was stopped at the turnout down by the river. Taking a rest. Somehow ended up pushing the bike back, maybe turning it around? Went a wee bit too close to the edge of the pavement, gravity enacted its law, and the next thing his bike was in the water.

Good Lord! Did you see the weight of that thing? 1742 pounds!
That's about the weight of the MGB sports car I used to own!
And that car had FOUR wheels!

The cruiser crowd....I'd like to thank them for their concern for my safety, always pointing out that SPOT of something on the road. Thanks Guys.....

Some of the people here were trying to point this out, many of them cruiser riders but she ignored and insulted them.

Nope, she got off easy.
