Just wait and look for a thread about a hydro-locked GS

BTW, that has to be one of the most remote Starbucks I've seen..

Hell yea! (not as deep as it looks) The first half was concrete, the second half was baseball sized river rock, dabbed my feet a couple times, got a boot full of creek water. The road on the other side was part of the creek a couple miles. I am sitting on the side of a county road in this pic. Good times!

Ha... well....It was completely flooded when we dragged it out of the water. We pulled the plugs, etc to drain it and it probably would have been fine.... had they not laid the bike on its side crushing and snapping off the ignition coil with the crashba. At that point it was a 185 mile tow truck ride to the nearest dealership...

Man that sucks! I bet he does listen next time. Viethorse, when these pigs get hydro locked (water/oil/fuel gets in the cylinder) you have to remove the plugs and hit the starter to clear the cylinder or you risk some pretty serious damage. Better safe than sorry.
