Royal Enfield goes for a swim

#Caferacer at the beach - Splash time

After crossing many lagoon pools and wading along the sea line, we attempted a rather ambitious #swim. 

To cut through a long stretch of shallow water instead of going around it.

But, unlike the earlier stretches, this one held a thick layer of soft and greasy seaweed sediments. Worse than clay. My #REContinentalGT lost traction within 10 feet. 
The sea won!

While I waited for my fellow Royal Enfield riders to tie up ropes to pull me out, I remembered an old advice for 4x4.

"if u r wading, first walk the stretch. Even if you can see the floor, walk the stretch."

So true, i could see a rather clean brown floor and assumed it to be sand. One walk and all the mess would have been averted. 

The Big single cylinder did manage to get out of the mess, with some help off course, and we did have our share of fun again.
