Stuck in the mud

For your amusement. Took a day ride out to a local State park and ended up in the middle of this harmless looking puddle. Crossed several others before this and the ground was hard packed sand. Found the muck here though. Took me about an hour with my Z-line to spin it around and stand it back up. Drained the exhaust and fired the big beast back up. Only damage was the headlamp that got about a shot glass of water in it. The last thing I noticed when I was leaving was the giant mud buggy tracks swerve to the one side of the puddle and mine pass right through the middle. Leap before you look, right?

Yes, we are amused very easily on this forum. That mud puddle didn't look too bad considering.............

I would have thought your panniers would float the bike across.

better check the oil in your rear end for water and think about greasing the swingarm pivot
