    Show us photos & videos of you and your filthy friends properly mucking about.

    I'll begin the festivities with these samples from one of Ontario's premium swamp districts... yes, "It was in Bobcaygeon, where I saw riders ragin' and engulf themselves one brap at a time.."



    Plus other various choice Ont locations...

    This poor bastard, Chris, fell off his new-to-him Bergy in this deep slough and both him and the bike went completely underwater for a second.

    Same swamp, slightly different location, Amir always seeks out the deepest mudholes to get us to pull him out of, and he seldom fails.

    No mud near Las Vegas, this is all I got. Sand, eating my bike.

    This will be a great thread! I'll do some digging (pun intended) and pull some pictures.

    I was coming up the inside line to fast, did a little dance in the bog and ended up here!

    It was a little deeper than usual. Hydrolocked and I had to push it out 3 miles. When I got it home I then had to pull the engine and rinse it out with diesel. I'd only put about 20 hours on the bike since installing the fresh rebuild (330 big bore) so I was just so happy to be doing it all over again.

    Don't worry, I cursed plenty when I got it on land and realized the engine was locked. Then when I got it home and found dirt had gotten past the air filter, the real cussing began!:devildog

    In New Hampshire, mired in silt. Bike isn't on it's stand, it's buried up to the skidplate. My Z-drag couldn't budge it; got towed out by an ATV.

    Another Bobcay moment, captured in slo-mo. Complete with @keener in his classically bossy demeanor which I classically ignore. Hey @alongat -- got anything to dump in here?

    There's nothing more heartbreaking than swamping your engine. A girl can't make you feel worse. I did it to my 950 in a huge mudhole near Carnarvon, Ontario two summers ago in the dark. I was with a guy on an F800GS with K60s who'd never ridden offroad, but he manned up and pulled me out of there. Took about a dozen oil changes and 5 garage nights to make right again. I have had a disturbing love-hate relationship with water crossings ever since. I love doing them. I have a deep fear of falling in them. And @keener loves them and taking everyone through them. Bastard.

    Sheesh. You know what I would say to a riding partner like him? "Buh-bye!"

    He means well. And he doesn't mind being yelled at back. Yin and yang sort of thing. All shits and giggles in the end.

    This one's a classic. The more you watch it, the funner it gets.
