Isn’t this what adventure bikes were meant to do? Not a behemoth like a GL1800.

Probably first off, his confidence level wasn’t there. And of course, forward momentum was lacking.

I’m with the riders here who commented they wouldn’t do it. Not without a Honda Africa Twin. Standing on the pegs.
Agree, I'd never try it either, but thought his confidence was off the chart; mine woulda plummeted at the shoreline, and I'da reversed and did a u-turn. Not sure about forward momentum, given the rocky creek bottom, but I'll never find out first hand. As for GW capabilities, I thought he did his GW proud, by showing us just what they are capable of. Again, I definitely would not even attempt it, but applaud those who are young enough, strong enough, brave enough and whatever else it takes to pull it off. I also like his spirit in just wanting to have a little fun and adventure. Hats off to him!
