    I made this Video three winters ago and thought it was lost in a computer crash. I just posted it you youtube, This is my riding partner Chuck and I out playing on the back roads.

    My editing isn't great, but you'll get the idea of riding here.

    Cool shots! I just love the roaring sound of the mighty TW as it powers through.... ok, it is kind of sputtering rattling rumble. But I still love it!

    Looks like fun! It also looks like it's not a bad idea to apply some waterproofing to the boots before riding in your part of the country. Enjoyable video, thanks!
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    Waterproof gear is important in the fall and winter, but in summer those creeks are dry as a bone.

    The first and final two crossings in particular look like they belong in a Yamaha promo video!



    looks like fun, glad you were able to recover the footage.

    Thanks, the next to the last one was my friend Chuck, riding over a beaver dam that was built across the road. The county road grader finally came and pushed it out, but it was fun while it lasted

    My wife would have loved splashing through there. I love riding through the "not deep" water on a hot day to cool off. Problem is, most of the time it's cold out when I find the water crossinngs!
