I've seen that before. Riding dirt bikes through rocky creeks can be pretty tricky. With the old 2 stroke bikes you could just turn it up side down with the spark plug out, put it in gear and spin the rear wheel until water stopped coming out and be on your way.

Dang some of them old 2 strokes were just about indestructable. I had a 100cc Hodaka that I would ride in the State Land across the valley from us. I was coming down a big hill to a paved road so I pulled the clutch and dropped it to neutral to coast down. Moving about 65-70 mph and I got to first gear when the clutch cable broke. I never heard a engine make noises like that. I have no idea how high the rpm went cause I did not have a tach. I would guess in the 20k region. I got it stopped and nauturally it was dead. Pulled the plug to check and the electrode was melted across the gap. I broke that open stuck it back in and kicked her to life and rode home:action:

I remember back in the 70s when my father-in-law and I used to ride our enduros up in Colorado and across those little mountain streams.

I would do a wheelie and get the front wheel up and over the creek. He didn't have the technique down right, and the picture above was the same as he experienced.

32*F rushing water can be an experience :cheeky1:

Well, I see the new and upcoming sport of motorcycle water skiing just isn't taking off like it should.......





Needs automatic floats that pop out when submerged.....

Perhaps he thought it would morph like a transformer into some sort of ski jet. :shock:
