Nice parking job!!!
But what a bummer!!! How do you get out of that one? Doubt a tow truck would be willing to go there...
Was that part of an Iron Butt rally?

Well, the rider certainly has a "now what?" look on his face.

and the bike is going: "RT you moron, ARR-TEE!, not GS!

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, is loud, goes fast, or shoots a big bullet, thus producing Torque or Recoil....It's Cool.

I'm just wondering why he didn't ride where he's standing.

I was wondering that as well David... Maybe he wanted his bike pic over on AdvRider?

I can feel his pain

I found myself in that same predicament once only it was my old 1966 FLH Harley Davidson.
I was exploring some 2-track trails around Palmetto Florida with a girlfriend.
I went around the puddle going in, came to a dead end, turned around and decided to go through instead of getting hit in the face by branches, it didn't look that deep!
Bike sunk in, exhaust pipe was under water so I shut it off.
We pushed, pulled cussed and prayed but the bike wouldn't budge,
we had mud from @sshole to elbow,
to add to my despair it was starting to get dark,
which meant large musquito's and who knows what else out there in the swamp.
I was kicking myself, why did I do something so stupid.
Suddenly a four wheel drive truck came down the track,
talk about luck or living right, I still don't know.
Seems he'd just bought the truck that day and wanted to see what it would do
but he didn't have anything to pull me with,
so he went on down to the dead end which doubled as an unofficial dump site.
Came back with a couple of old bed sheets,
tied them on the front of the Harley and pulled it out like it was nothing, by now it was dark.
I couldn't thank him enough,
gave him every dollar I had in my wallet maybe 20-30 and got the H#ll outta there.
Ten minutes down the road I realized that I didn't even have a dollar to get across the toll bridge,
Ten minutes from home we had to make a one hour detour through Tampa while we were wet and muddy, what a day.

Yeah, but you don't need to worry about getting it up on the center stand!
