KLR650 Motorcycle River Crossing Fail

KLR650 Motorcycle River Crossing Fail
Today I crashed my Kawasaki KLR650 during a river crossing. The river wasn’t very deep so I thought I could make it across no problem and zoomed into the water. But the rocks got the best of me and made me crash.

Our ride up to this point was pretty rough and I didn’t have any water. My legs were beginning to cramp up and I felt a little stroked out. Falling in this water was the best thing that could have happened to me.

  1. I didn’t think we would be getting into anything heavy on this ride. Just thought we would cruise for a few hours. I didn’t take any water with me.

  2. The intake on the KLR is on the right side of the bike so it was out of the water. Not that I was thinking about that at the time….

  3. I think the bike was just telling you it’s time for a shower. Way to jump right up too..

  4. you should have been standing on the pegs to use your legs as a 3rd suspension when going over all those rocks

  5. I think this is gonna quickly became your most viewed video.

    Anyway, compared with your crash in a river with the GS, you improved a lot. This is much more spectacular. 😉

  6. why would go that fast into rocks? with or with out water…… lesson learned. LOL.

  7. You should take the big rock home and give it a place of honour on your fireplace. 😉 Nice video!

  8. Great video, but take it easy out there. If you broke a leg going down like that on your own…that would be bad. Glad to see you get right back up.

  9. What was that helmet cam sound right as you were ditching? hhhwwmmpphhhuuuh….
    HA! Awesome fun. I’m sure the wife is always excited when Ryan’s in the ER….again..

  10. You should do it more differently next time. lol btw what handguards are those you use?

  11. wow man that is a crazy fall, u did not anticipate the body shift position forward

  12. Oh buddy….. Good one!!!! My favorite….. the “uhggghhh” at the bottom 🙂

  13. Wobbly KLR suspension plus tense driver sitting in passive position plus a stone in the way = fail.

  14. Hey man. Would be cool use this video in my new Compilation Video? i will give you full credit in my description! You like this?

  15. what an idiot, heads into a bunch of unknown rocks full tilt go figure he dumped it
