I read somewhere that a couple guys bought pontoons, and after inflating them, they attached them to motorcycles and crossed a pretty big river. Name:  MANISTEE RIVER PONTOON FLOAT 023.jpg

Hi guys, thanks for your thoughts on the flooding, it's really bad further North, an area the size of Texas is underwater.

This ride was an oz adv forum christmas ride a few weeks ago:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...633302&page=21

the guy with the super ten is a legend in oz, he's an animal on the bike. Been rally racing for decades. He was doing gnarley singletrack, mud holes, rocky ridges. He was throwing it around like a 250, and it handled it all really well. Not too bad for a senior citizen .

Not sure about the wisdom of wading through there while wearing a crash helmet.

Does anyone know if the S10 started once they crossed? Or did it flood?

Is this ADV rider or, photoshop expert rider?
Im sure there were a ton of folks with DSLR's waiting in the river for that shot. Maybe one of them has a sharper image.

+1 my point, exactly!

I guess that only young folks under 25 can make the difference between 5 megapixels and 15, or for instance between 720p and 1080p, personally, I don't.
