I don't have 13 minutes to waste. Can you post the highlights / funny outtakes?

You're right! You're an idiot. Nice off road work. Lots of guys would pee their pants just to have to ride their bike off road, let alone through water crossings full of rocks. Good job getting it out of the deep water too. Still an idiot though. Fun vid. Glad I had 13 minutes to spare. Thanks for putting it up. Proves that the worst day of motorcycling still beats most other things.

OK, so you see water over over the road for a wide stretch, but you decide to go where it's a more narrow crossing? Tough way to learn that the same volume of water in a narrower "river" means DEEP water.

It could've been a really bad day for you if you found yourself under your bike in a deep wash of water.

Also, on the stretches where you did stay on the road, you should be more in the center. Water rushing over pavement can undermine the roadbed and leave the edge of the pavement unsupported or broken. It would suck to find a large hole where you thought there should be pavement. :eek: Better to follow a car or truck so you know how deep it is and that the road is still intact.

Yeah I know. Tough lesson. I didn't go on the road because some cars didn't make it and got washed to the side. I was late for work and wasn't thinking.

That Range Rover must be driven by the same kind of person as over here. Pretty much everyone I see has a self absorbed and inconsiderate muppet behind the wheel.

Did you remember to lube the chain the next day?

Is it still an SV325?

We want an after action report.
