I guess I didn't need to post it.  It's all over the news this morning.

Awesome!
Think they'll put out a salt water model for 2016??
Maybe with a snorkel? And floaty stabilizers for the beginners.  ;)

Great video, mine will only be in the swamps and deserts. I'll never be THAT fortunate

Awesome! I wonder how many times the bike went to the bottom before he got it all worked out with tires and the skis.

I have to think (hope?)  they have tethered auto-inflate floatie units on bike and rider both.

Might not have been an issue? I've had my KTM in 3 feet water on the regular wheels.  Might be deep enough to test and work things out. 

I was wondering how many times they sank/submerged looking for that "right wave"  ;D

Reminds me of the movie Speed http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111257/. But in this case instead of a bomb going off if you go too slow, your KTM is ruined. And a shark eats you.
