    This happened yesterday on the DBBB in Kentucky. I have very short legs and was trying to go too slow and clipped the tree which
    tipped me over just enough. The mud was about 12" deep under that nasty water. Luckily had a riding buddy and we got it up and
    with some hydro pack water cleaned off the grip and switches and was good to go.

    I've seen your bike in a more upright position, nice ride, glad some one was there to take a picture before doing CPR on you!

    Great picture. I love the wtf? type body language and the guy in the background looked like he was wearing a business suit at first.

    IMG_20161209_1635193.jpg It was a bitch to have to lift this behemouth upto and past the horizontal position, then re-grab, and then keep pushing it up to make it vertical. None of the conventional bike lifting techniques worked, so I had to use all of the little heavy lifting skills that I had.

    I used up all my strength, and ten years from now I may not be able to do it at all. I would have to rotate the fallen bike, while it is on its side, in the process scraping all the plastics and paint, and then lift it from the easy side. Or call a friend to come over and help.

    I'm hoping ten years from now, I don't have to lift bike at all.
    What I meant was that towing service will be affordable ...:D

    It's those funnels taking you down man! Turn them over so gravity is reversed!
