Cool Thrills of the ride

Went out riding this weekend. Thought I would share some photos.


A little mud get off. No biggie. Pick it up and move on. Laugh about it. Maybe hitting the scooter in the mud had something to do with it.

This next one was pretty crazy.

He tried to skirt around the left side and the mud was slippery and the rear tire washed into the pit of doom. And the rest is history. Kind of crappy then. Funny now.

Here's a good shot to show how deep it was. Only took 3 oil changes to get the oil clean. Luckily it started after being in there. Especially since it took almost 5 mins to get it out of there.

Mud pit

That's quite a "Sink Hole" !! You'd need a "Snorkel" if you tried to go through it.

Exclamation

Do they make a scuba kit for a Klr?

I don't think the snorkle would have cut it.
