Just a word of advice
If you ever come across a deep water crossing,
And you happen to be pulling a water tight trailer
That floats.
Think twice about it....
It's hard to get traction when the floating trailer lifts
the rear wheel off of the river bed.
The bike starts floating down the river backwards
Rear wheel spinning , slinging water everywhere.
Front wheel brake on sliding along the bottom.
The water getting deeper and deeper.
Till the bike is almost straight up and down..

All you can do is thank God you are alone..
That there is nobody there to record video..
For this you would never live down..
I'm sure it was quite a sight..
Just one more reason you should carry extra
Oil and a change of shorts when you ride........
An interesting way to spend an afternoon but
once was more then enough for me...
A good time to break out the hammock and take
a nap.....

Easily averted. Turn that copper 45 degree pipe fittings that is on your tailpipe outlet upside down (pointing up). The downward pressure allows all 175 hp to group those slippery rocks on the bottom of the deepest water crossing.

PS... Good descriptive post. Thank You, from another hammock sleeper.

Now; if you had two of those trailers. One mounted on each side of the bike (making them "siders" instead of "trailers") - and a paddle tire on the rear wheel...................................................

This is exactly why I’m mounting an outboard motor to my cycle rack.

I think maybe I just hunt and Peck faster. What computer program are you using? I just found the voice to text button I may be unleashed now
