You're riding along and find a tree down…of course you do what any sensible person would do… 🤪 OK, so I didn't actually ride over it clean… It was more of a wheelie onto it as pictured and then a three man job dragging the bike over the top. We could have done with Mr @gforcejarvis in the group to ride them over but hey sometimes you've just got to use muscle power 💪🏼 Who would have been up for this? Or would you turn around? Thanks to storm Denis this certainly wasn't the only tree we had to navigate either!

One of those moments when you realise you forgot to do everything you were meant to do… Resulting in… Splash 💦 Thankfully there were many other moments when I did what I was meant to do and smashed it instead of splashed it 🤣💪🏼 Absolutely awesome day getting wet and muddy with @freestyle_enduro_training on their private enduro training area. If you are in the South East looking for some riding I highly recommend booking in… But I don't recommend the river dip! #muddy #mudriding #enduro #hardenduro #waterproofs #watercrossing #dirtbikes #husqvarnamotorcycles #husqvarna #pioneeringsince1903 #enduro #te150i #Husqvarna150 #freestylebikes #advrider #motorcyclefail #twostroke #thegirlonabike #mxfail #failvideo #dailyfail #motoenduro
