Yep, your right, You would have to pull real hard on the bars to get the front end up...But plowing through it would still give some good splash effect...:grin2:Things like that happen quick on a Strom. It's not like a dirt bike with a light front end that floats across mud and sand.
Nova Scotia is beautiful and has great riding though there are places where I've stepped off the bike to pee behind a tree and kept my helmet on (and a close eye on my exposed parts) as the biting insects (Black flies/Deer Flies or Mosquitoes) were about in serious numbers.With all due respect, I can't think of a less pleasant place to ride. Mosquitoes, Swamp and crappy roads.
At least in the desert when you fall in the sand you don't get wet.
Did I see mountains on the horizon there? Oh, maybe not!
