Man, I HATE mud. Sand, gravel, rocks, water where I can see the bottom, but no MUD! I HATE MUD. I was riding with JMZ, BWDMax and 4JRanch north of Victoria and we came across this flooded road. When swimming about 50 yards in.

To be fair I didnít notice any fish, but there was plenty of water coming out of the helmet when you stood up. The hole that took you by surprise was at least six inches deeper than the rest of the water. I only wish I could have gotten a picture before you stood up.
I was just looking at that area on the map last week and I noticed a couple roads I donít think I have ever explored. They may be private Iím going to check them out when I get some good weather.

LOL. I never had water IN my helmet before. That was a hoot. "There's a rut out there and I'm going to find it."

When you're ready to ride those new roads, let us know. Shoot, let us know when you're ready to ride the old ones. I bet it is going to take JMZ more than one kick to start the R now.

Yea, the only that that stops her is running out of gas. She's on 18 now. BTW, the overpasses around the med center are starting to get some slurry on them. Take care!


Back to the regularly scheduled Interesting programming...

Re: Interesting

Just pull out the cam, weld the valves shut, install a reed valve on the intake, and get a little creative with the Dremel tool making some transfer ports - easy peasy.
