Default What a Day!

     

the other day, i went riding for the first time since the floods (still really wet) and i learnt how to skim water. and in this particular 'puddle' i had a really short run up, and my front tyre bit in about 3/4 the way across. basicly, i got really wet. to make matters worse, my acceleraitor cable got jammed from the mud. it siezed up, in the carby, and then snapped as i tried to work it free. i am miles away from my house, downhill, so there is no way i caould push it home, so, using the idoling as the throttle, o managed to ride it home. until i met a construction site that had been completely flooded under. construction site + water = MUD.
i was up to my muffler, not going any where fast, burning out the poor clutch. i got off my bike, no stand down, not holding it or any thing, and it just sat there. i just walked off to get a couple of my mates, and we came back with planks of wood and managed to free it, but not before i lost an entire boot under the mud. suck right off my foot ( it wasnt done up tight cause the water filled it up, so i was trying to drain it.) so yea, that was a really stupid. i was so angry. in the period of 1 hour, i managed to screw my bike for ages.

Gas engines and water don't mixed. Sounds like an expensive repair bill to me.
