Hamman Motorrad collected the bike this morning and will have a look at it tomorrow.

A pic or two.

This little piggy had a near death experience.



The SPCA arrives and decides not to put the piggy out of its misery just yet.



Off to the vet.


Will report back as soon as I have more info.

Can't find any specs re the wading depth but the air intake is fairly low, just above the right side cylinder head. It's a known weakness on the GS and something I always consider when crossing water.

I think the water was literally 50mm too deep. What can I say?

The air intake is in the same place but the suspension is different so it's actually a bit higher than on the standard GS.
