Some say he’s the Stig, but he isn’t. He’s the Stig’s Dakar Rally cousin!
Haha! This is actually my buddy Justin (edzachtamundo). We are in El Salvador; he got hit by a truck three days ago. He had a nasty compound fracture on his right femure; we managaged to get him to a private hospital in a nearby town where they were able to perform surgery and save his leg. We are currently at the hospital with him as he recovers.
All told, there are four advriders here right now: myself (ulyses), jdowns, and two canadians. Five counting justin (edzachtamundo) We decided to have a little mini rally/party for Justin last night in his room and that picture was the result.
All told, Justin is looking at over $5,500 of medical fees, judicial costs, and outright bribery. We´ve set up a paypal donation button that links straight into his paypal account. If anyone is interested in helping out a fellow rider who is down on his luck, follow the link in my signature to my blog where you can click on Justin's recovery fund.
hah! in the US he'd be looking at 4X that just for the helivac to get to the trauma center.
I'm sure this one has been posted. PBee's picture is awesome!
Faith, Hope and Courage...Radioman:
This picture was taken this summer on the Old Summer Road between Tomtor and Susuman in Far East Russia.
The bike is a stock BMW F800 GS.
congrats from a fellow 800gs rider and fellow ROB rider!!
How can this work, with the air intake and battery under water? And all the electronic connections. No problems at all??:huh
Besides, I would have been afraid that the hole becomes deeper. Brave driver.
With an auto/truck, the front of the vehicle actually pushes the water away and creates a bow wave. This allows for a lower level of water and pocket of air to remain where the air intake usually sits. You just have to maintain momentum for it to work and hope your radiator fan doesn't throw water over the ignition components. Stop and all the water comes rushing up and higher until it settles. Maybe this works for m/cs too?
Electrical isn't a big deal under water,it's the air intake and crankcase vent.They are close to being under water.
The air intake was below for a second here. The bike had some asthma problems when getting on the shore on the other side. We just kept the bike running and after a little while it was running proper again
Don't look back, you are not going in that direction

Me last year, ridding my 400KTM up on Dartmoor, Devon, UK (big bloke, little bike)
Damn man.you're a good size ole boy.You make that moto look like a mini bike.
Ha, I'm stood abort 6 inches up on some snow, but yes, I'm 6'6'' and can make most bikes look small.
One of the best pics and one of the most surprisingly! How cam that motor still run in the middle of the river? The driver has earned a present. Cheers.
Well done. +1 for the rotation.
