yeah its a great place to ride by, But its all privately owned, and just so happens my friend and his uncle owns it, there is everything from hills to mud holes that i don't think any bike could get through. We got some thick mud and just plain water holes. But now is the perfect time of the year to play in the river, its down and the run offs by the place are low as well, which means an endless supply of mud for those that want it. And at that same spot right there we sometimes take tubs and chairs and just sit out there all day and drink and soak up the beer and sun, especially on a hot summer day. we have people ride with us from all ages from 14 and 15 to 50 and 60 year olds. That specific part of the river is in plumfield Illinois between Zeigler which is were i live and West Frankfort on highway 148.

its an HMF it has plenty of backpresure, also i will idle completely submerged. I had no problems with it not dieing. I don't know why yours is unless there isn't enough backpressure. Try turning your idle up when your in water, i had to turn mine up just a bit but not to much
