yes they sure love to show you how deep the mud is, and how heavy they are to boot. especially if (like myself)you only weigh  135#(soak'n wet) compared to their 370# suctioned to the mud seems more like 3700# in my experience. but that which doesnt break our back and kill us makes us stronger,right?
<------this was the first time i got my 650 stuck, and she was stuck.
i have actually carried a small come-a-long on trips w/ the 650 i thought might get a little soggy when riding solo (most all the time)

glad to see your gettin her dirty  

Ride like lightning, crash like thunder.

If it looks deep...it's deeper. Yep, ask Johnny Africa.

The best way out of most situations is more gas.

Well the first trip thru the spot was just water over black dirt. But on the way out after me and my buddy on my other bike a TW went thru it things changed. Lol but thats the only time i've had it stuck and am getting better at riding trails. Jeknow if you wanna ride let me know I get off at 330 and can go almost any afternoon. Ive seen several dual sports on the ride home wondering who they are? Email me greenswamp2041@yahoo.com
