    That was a ridiculous amount of mud and brown water! I made it through without stalling or taking a mud bath!

    About exhausted myself for 20 minutes trying to get out of this one, but FINALLY made it home for a much needed glass of water - lesson learned it's easier to get stuck than un-stuck :) Wife pulled in the driveway shortly after and saw me like this - the first words out of her mouth were "did you wreck into a lake?" and "is it ruined?" haha, nope to both questions...
    The 2nd pic is a bit of an optical illusion - there were actually a few tires buried in this mud and the one looks like a photo chop of my missing rear tire, I assure you my tire is on the bike in the pic it was some nice mud. 20180608_122428.jpg 20180608_122656.jpg 20180608_133622.jpg

    Broke my cherry with getting my new bike stuck in some mud yesterday. Exploring a logging road and about 3 km in I start to feel the front sink a bit, and the rear squirm around. I was alone and decided that turning around would be the smart option. I tried leaning the bike over on my leg, revved engine, drop clutch, to whip it around 180 degrees. The bike didn't really move where I wanted, but sunk down a bit instead. This is where I think I made the wrong choice...lol.

    Instead of carefully trying to get out of the rut I created, I figured I'd try to use more power. You can see the results below. It took me about an hour to dig out one side of the tire enough that I could push the bike over on its side, thus freeing the tire from the sloppy mud hole.

    I then used small tree trunks that were laying around as levers to rotate the bike by using the bottom of the hole as an anchor point, and the rear tire as the contact point. I moved the bike enough to finally stand it up, clean it off, and ride out of there.

    I thought I was taking the same trail home but was mistaken. 17”slicks into soft mud!! I was by myself...it was awful.
