Huge mud puddle

That mud puddle you tried to ride through is gi-normous. I think it's even big and deep enough for Maggie and a few of her huge friends to wrestle around in.

What the hell was that a "hold my beer and watch this" moment.

Alright so let me ask you GS owner, I've seen most GS have that projector light , right by the crash cage . Is that a factory feature ? Or an after market light ?

No one riding at Eureka today...when I was there.
A bit cool but less rain than Palmer.

Steve 715-6366 give us a call sometime we live in Wasilla and can catch up for a ride. We just got in from kenai. That puddle you were in we were commenting on how deep it was. Was proud of my wife for getting her g650 thru all of them without any assistance from us. She never ceases to amaze me how awesome of a rider she has become.

Ok, will do!! I think the safest way across that mud is on the shoulder, or not having such a HUGE bike with slicks may have helped... there were a few spots that were way softer than others, and of course, I hit one of them

. I'm sort of thinking next weekend....maybe head North, Fairbanks...maybe camp out but not sure yet. 907-982-6133. If ya got any ideas let me know!
