Sank a YZ 125

Well, since Saturday was somewhat nice around here, i decided to go ride at my farm with a buddy of mine, we were riding around the normal trails, and came upon the dried up lake bed. After walking on it (top soil was dry, but any pressure you would sink down about 3-4 inches) i decided it would be a good idea to try and ride my 125 through it, BAD IDEA!! Made it a little ways, then the back tire sank down and was buried...i had this thing up to the FRAME in mud, and there was no getting it out of that mississippi mud. Had to ride two people on my buddies 125 through all the trails to get back to the farm and get my old TRI-Z (4 wheeler battery was dead) and ended up spending 2 hours getting it out, not to mention busting off the front number plate and radiator shroud...turned out to be a not so nice day

nope, by the time my front wheel sank, my back tire was already all the way in the mud and i was rappin er out in 2nd gear moving inches at a time , looking back it was really dumb i started to sink almost as soon as my wheels touched the dirt, but at least we got a 12 pack before we went back to get it out, made it a little better
