There's another thread somewhere in ADV from somebody asking how he and his buddy can resurrect their bikes after this trick failed. They couldn't and had to find new rides.
I'll find a dock and real boat. Maybe have time to find a seniorita to wait with.

And while I'm up for a lot of things, I've already done the road bandits in Colombia. It weren't pretty and you really need to listen to people's warnings about that part of the planet.

Hey, It's an S10, A mythical beast only found in pictures, from Adventurers.

But it would be a bit depressing watching your barely run in S10 sink beneath the waves.

How long do you think it will take for someone to point out that it only takes 3 people to get a GS into a boat

If a bike is not running, it can be submerged without aby grave trouble , just drain it let the oil stand in a washing up basin, for two ours pinch a little hole in the lowest point of the slight tilted plastic, let the water run in a jar, and as soon as oil comes out, put your finger on th elittle hole and return the now reverse-skimmed oil into the engine again. The big tanks in harbours are dewatered in quite the same way.

Tilt the bike on its hind leg to get the header pipe empty, and empty the detatched muffler, let the bike a dy in the sun to dry, and fire it up.

if it dipped running the consequences can be as grimas a bent conrod though :-(

As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this leg of the trip with a dock and a real boat. I think there is one that runs from Miami, and I guess this might be an option if you are keen on avoiding Mexico and Central America.

Bob, if you know where to find a dock/boat in that part of the world, I'm all ears. Sounds like you know where to find senoritas too? You seem like a good person to know...

Yeah, submerging a motorcycle in salt water won't hurt anything.

Thanks, Bob!

Fun to watch ol' know-it-all Rema/R3B hang himself repeatedly, isn't it?

Mas Oyama would have told you to do whatever it takes to get the job done, nothing fancy!
Or maybe he could have taken off the handlebars in one shuto and after sitting, put it back with a teisho ushi or a kakato
geri.

I'm glad I'm not the only one getting tired of the supposedly expert

Can any geek out there create a script for Firefox or Chrome to use on the ADV site that would allow me to exclude a particular user from a thread or from the ADV site?

I will send a box of chocolates or 4 quarts of oil for the next oil change to the first guy that programs it
