2) when you're standing there with a water-logged 500 lb bike and no one around has a big air compressor, what can you do?
1) Don't submerge your bike.

2) Take out spark plugs (not when cylinders are submerged ) put bike in 5th gear turn back wheel about half a turn, then hit starter for a few short bursts, put plugs back in, start bike. Hopefully.
