Love it fellas, keep em' coming.

Aren't yous afraid of poisonous snakes or other critters hiding in the muddy water?

I'm terrified of what's lurking under the water surface, watched Jaws too young.

Took this one slow, taking pictures and all, then got bored and we were running late as we had a long way to go. Took some serious risks that day in the water. At one point bike was smoking badly as well and missing for a minute due to high speed water hit.

 :imaposer: awesome pics, it looks like you were about to go for a swim in the 2nd pic.

thanks for sharing.

NK, that is fascinating to me, I've not ever been in water that muddy with a 2-wheeler.

Much respect.  That is a poster quality picture that would look cool on the garage wall.

Winterberg National enduro some years back

Seeing your sweet pic of your WR reminded me that I owned an 04' I'd forgotten about, I have to add that to my bikes owned list :imaposer:

I told ya my mind is mush.  I can't believe I forgot about what was most likely, the most reliable dirt-bike I've ever owned.

I couldn't kill the thing.

A lot of bike to handle in rough conditions.  But that's back when we were really tough.

Thanks for sharing that historical pic.
