I have seen the vids I think scuzz posted of this.....I can't seem to figure out why anyone would want to risk sinking thier bike to do this...thats what boats are for...but to each his/her own.

yeah the vids are of raptors and predators. i just wanted to know if it could be done on a 700xx. I watch those guys do it at wiggins ms and the more i watch the more i want to try it.

If a raptor can do it, I am sure the XX is more than capable of doing it, and it does look cool, but I will never try it with my bike.

You could install an air bag under the frame so when it started to sink, you would just pull the lever and the air bag would inflate, the only problem with that is if the air pressure is not regulated properly, you/bike might just learn how to fly, lol!!

i also learned that you slip the clutch so it doesnt bog in such a high gear, i think it will skim, i have accelerated fast enough on 2-4" of water and got my bike on the water, one time at wiggins i was riding wheelies in a little creek part and my bike got all the way on top of the water on 2 wheels and drifted sideways almost killing me LOL...i was on slanted paddles so i think its very possible on the xx.

how often do you hit up wiggins. it seems like i go there every weekend i am home now.


i guess i need to put haulers on order. the thing that sucks is i just got brand new sand stars. i guess having a set of each isnt so bad.:nuts:
