today me and a few buddies of mine whent out on a little riding trip on trails not to far away from my house. we were going on trails that i had never been on, so i had no idea what was coming up around the next turn. i was going down this trail that was about 5 feet wide and about 3 feet away from a 4 foot cliff into a freezing cold river. the trail had ruts that were lower one one side than the other, so i was leaning twards the river. then with my tire i hit a stump on the oposite side of the river and tiped over right in the water. i got my head above water just long enough to see my 83 big red come rolling down right on top of me. so there i am, under freezing water with a 350 pound wheeler on top of me. luckly i was able to swim out from undernieth the wheeler and fight the current and got back on shore. it took 1/2 hour to get my wheeler up the cliff and out of the water. my wheeler started up right away (what can i say, its a honda) and was able to ride home with only minor cuts and scrapes
