Hello my fellow Blur Pilots,

Here's the video of me attempting to travel through a flooded Chicago Viaduct. My Blur and I went for a swim and I fell into an open manhole.

There is a before and after video.

Thanks
Chitown (waterlogged) Dave

That was crazy. Jeeps are designed to ford water as their air intakes are higher than normal cars. The Blur has a very LOW intake so that was a poor choice. Very lucky you didn't ruin the motor.

Glad you are okay and bike appears okay, great story for sharing the experience. Be sure to post up status if anything else does seem wrong with the bike or what else you may have found.

Thanks!

Dave, I guess you have more money than sense. Scooters can't swim.
