I got my lesson trying to ride what looked dry above a receding reservoir level. We were having great fun playing flat tracker, expanding loops until the path resulted in sudden bog and flight over the bars. Thigh deep mud and dragging the bikes (250 enduros) 50 yards to solid ground. I can't imagine the wrangle it took with the big bikes.
