We were all out at the narrows between two lakes the other day running the 300 feet of open water. Everything was going fine when a guy on a moded out sx 700 yamaha stopped by to watch. He decided after watching about ten succesfull crossings that he was going to try it. alot of the guys told him dont try it, dont try it Yamahas dont swim. So he objected stateing that he had this done and that done and he was going for it. You guessed it he hit the water at about 80mph made it about 150' and started to porpise. If he had given up there, he would have been in about five feet of water. but he kept going and made it another 50' which got him into the mouth of the next lake and thirty feet of water. We got him out O.K. I was wondering though, why dont Yamahas swim and everyone there seemed to know he wouldn't make it.
