    This Harley belongs to this girl.
    She very much was interested out enduro motorcycles.
    In his day she tested 9 motorcycles.
    We participated in hobby orientations competition.
    After competition we showed it interesting places on a route.
    Here we crossed water in both directions, helmets are near the photographer.

    Yes, a few years back after heavy rains the landrover boys went playing. Water was too deep and fast flowing, landy tipped over and the girl in the passenger seat was trapped and drowned. Always go with people which know the area and conditions. My good mate is a mountain rescue leader in the area with a special telephone. The one which brings the rescue chopper down to you :evil
