Sodwana - Lake Sibaya 2006
« on: August 07, 2006, 10:05:55 pm »
Patman & Bikermice plus family visited the area for a holiday.

Of course the bikes had to go along, so here's a few pics of the trip

Patman doing the water crossing





Needless to say - at some stage the depth of the water was mis-judged  :D





Eventually the GS was recovered from the water





Removed the plugs to get rid of the water.....



Good cough to clear the lungs and Bob's You Uncle.... :D



.and off into the sunset. Thank Goodness it wasn't a KTM, as the water seems to get the best of them..... :D  :D  :D

Such terribly irresponsible behaviour, the pig with the big jugs could have swallowed something horrible!

I trust no Alchohol was involved at any time?

I have already forwarded this atrocious photo and the one of Whitney to your mother, assuming her address is  "theladylioness@pretoriazoo.co.za".

what can i say...when i saw the 1st pic, i already knew the way it was going to end  :cry:
 :?  it is NOT a jetski!

leo, what about water in the oil, should one not flush the engine oil several times after drowning the bike? - apparently the oil goes milky.

a ktm wouldnt have drowned in the 1st place because the airbox is waaaaaay higher than a gs  :twisted:

And KLR riders ride over rough terrain cos they need too, they dont just go ride IN Lake Sibaya cos its cool.

Is that cos the big GS's cant ride in the really rough stuff they have to go play in the water?

Maybe this is why some places ban bikers. Irresponsible behaviour if you ask me.

I have seen Patman ride, he is capable, but...  
ATGATT ? And this makes the antics of the branny and coke kwat brigade look tame.
If you had a kwat would we have seem big doughnut circles there?

I'll only cross water if I have to. Water in a motor can't be good pumping it out or not  :shock:
