I wonder how deep...oh $?!&

So a nice hot stroll through the SHNF and I was up front. Felt good thru sandy bottom then stumbled upon this "small" water pit. Quick glance there was no way around it. I gonna stick to the edge an not go thru the center I tell myself. Didnt look deep at all...

I already did!! Thats not even the half of it...The bike actually some how sucked in some muddy water!! I started it after get pulled out to fling the mud off, hit the main road which was close by then about 50 yds later the bike bogged. Kick, kick, kick....thought to myself well thats kind of odd. I pulle the air box cover and water/sludged came rushing out thought gor sure my $2k motor was done for. Pushed it back about 1/2 mile in 90% humidity and almost got heat exhaustion. Tore it apart at home and comfirmed mud in the carb, and intake. WD40 the intake and piston, blew it out with compressed air, changed the oil(which had no water in it) and it cranked right up!! Dodge a big bullet

If that would have happened that would be the last sign that the bike was possessed and needed to be burned. Why didn't you use the pull strap and have somebody tow you back? Your wife is too young to be a widow.

The water or sludge barely made it up to the pegs..I had no clue it got in the air box...no one saw me turn onto the main road, they all thought I kept going down the trail

By "turn", he means he left the crime scene ahead of us, then somehow noticed the road running close to the trail, and cut through the woods to get to it. Meanwhile none of the rest of us even saw the road in the first place, so we were hauling down the trail for another half hour thinking we will catch up to him eventually lol. Fun times...

Sure glad tho you didn't drown $2k in that mud hole....
