    I think the mighty TW did better than the KLR. I wanted to see you go through the same water crossing as he did though...
    What brought the cops?
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Great ending! That alone made the video worth watching. I've dreamt of that situation where a camera was handy for a long long time. You got it done! Love it!

    Now, biased here no doubt, but riding up and down the rock in the beginning, the TW actually did look like it did it better. You can hear the contrast in the TW vs. KLR gearing and I bet that made a big difference. From my personal waterborne experience, I don't think you and the TW would have done any better "in" the water. You chose wisely by skirting it off to the side of the water.

    Thanks for sharing this video. It was funny in spots too. You guys are having fun. I hope you keep it up and sharing with us!

    So what was the outcome with the officer, seams like the KLR guy was running rpms too low/ kept killing it but did ok.

    Thanks to all, and you're welcome on the no music, too often that makes vids unwatchable. The very nice lady cop let us off with a warning. Apparently we were in a 25mph school zone and not a 35mph zone as we thought. Since school was not in she cut us a break (we were going 41). My other buddy (jb882 on this forum) teased me that he didn't think a TW could get pulled over!

    My buddy lives in Rochester, we took a combination of roads and trails to near Wolfsboro, past Merrymeeting Lake. There is an ATV club in the vicinity. And those rocks were at a point called Tumbledown Dick, don't know the etymology.
