09 water worthy

Lotta flooding going on in this area (and others). Decided to check out a road I am familiar with which runs parallel to a creek now out of it's banks. Started out 10-12 "deep, got up close to where the exhaust comes out of the muffler in spots. Not wise but it sure was fun. Used to refer to the KLR as a tank, from now on it's an amphibian.

I've gone through water that was up to the bottom of the seat. Didn't have a problem but I wouldn't want to do it all the time.
