I am very wary of water crossings, and will rather do big distance around than risk going through.

Same here, if there's no 'must' then a detour suits me fine, call me a sissy.
Chopperpilot almost lost his bike there but he parked it juuuuust safe.... maybe that's the same as landing a chopper Henk?  :P
The railway berm was just up there so we rather took that, at the other watercrossings we weren't that lucky and had to detour or turn back.
With a lighter bike comes a better chance to risk it, but wit ~200kg & low saggy tanks the water's hold becomes too much too fast.
No regrets though, it was an awesome ride: sogging wet but not cold  :thumleft:

Then never go ride with @Just Blip It! , he'll take you through the deepest one he can find... >:D >:D

Yeah, read that too, sortof  :P
Good education & manners hmm?
One never can hide those  :thumleft:
Let's ride w@nted, that oom bit will fall away along the wayside then  ;)

 :biggrin:

I would love to join the 7/890 bash/ride. Unfortunately I am bike-less at the moment, which makes it a bit difficult. These photos definitely make me itch to get a bike soon... These  7/890's have grown on me... :deal:
