Hard to believe that as a noob DS rider seven years ago, this puddle posed a better-think-twice obstacle to cross on my KLR (a.k.a. the "Warthog").
Today the crossing seems to have been improved with crushed stone--or maybe it's just natural fracture. Together with less water and a lighter bike, it's a piece of cake to whizz across without even getting my feet wet.
Great day to be out riding.
