Does water not enter some of your vital parts when you are completely immersed in water?

Only places for water to enter are your air intake and exhausts, the rest are IP66 or better. As long as the engine is running, the exhaust can be submerged but when water gets into the air intake, the bike drowns and so does your bank balance

Everything works with smoke, if the smoke escapes, it stops working.

As long as you have a nice waterproof pant on, it should not get that wet

Was posted before, but still one of the most spectacular water crossing shots - a Suzuki Djebel 250XC doing the water-crossing thing.

Its the Nonoti river near Zinkwazi, if you stop on the N2 and look down you will see the old road that was used before the N2.
