    Might as well throw a little Colombian mud in the mix. I got too slow and sunk it to the rear axle and bottom of the pegs so I had to get off and push. :lol3 This wasnt the worst of the day but close.

    Gracias amigo. Yeah, I was 2 up for a couple of weeks there. I taught my passenger to stand up and hold onto me when I stood up, and let the bike move beneath her. With that technique it was actually pretty easy to get through mud, rocks and deep ruts 2up. You just cant get too slow in the mud.:lol3 She was cold, soaked, covered in mud, and was hooting and hollering every time we went through a big mud pit. :lol3 That was a really fun day of riding in Colombia.

    Well, it's not as impressive as all the other pictures, but commuting in December in Iowa can be interesting:
