Prime example, I went primitive camping this weekend in the national forest down here. I'm a very experienced rider and even pre checked out our intended access roads. one spot was fairly flooded (2 to 2 1/2 foot deep) with all the rain we have been getting and on the pre check out ride I just drove through it, however Dumb Ass me not wanting to get all my gear wet on the camp day in decided to try and skirt the flooded section by going through the weeds. Stupid me didn't realise that happened to be the side most of flood water was coming from and there were hidden ruts in there too. you guessed it, more or less High Centered the Wee. If it wasn't for the help of a camping friend the Wee probably would still be stuck in the mud. I couldn't have got it unstuck by my self.
Just saying be prepared and not sorry.. by the way I do have engine guards, radiator guard and skid plate.
