I don't get it. That looks like a reason NOT to go hunting.

I'd hunt that flock with a single-barrel magnum!

OK I have always been a big honda atv fan but it is now a permanent belief in my life .
This past Sunday my trooper bud found this little honda rancher wedged in between 2 trees in the river behind his house , with the rust and marine growth on it I estimate its been down a good 6 months , SUBMERGED in some of the siltiest water around .
Law of the land in the boat world , if the engine goes under , you LEAVE it under until it can be cleared and salvaged , once the air hits it , its done .
So he takes his atvs and truck and pulls the bike out , calls it in but it does not come back stolen but they are looking to see if any other reports exist that match it .
In the mean time he starts to clean it up a bit only to reveal that the plastics are nearly perfect , NO , not one mud stain , no undercarriage scratch or damage , factory tires and no dents on the rims , the bike was VERY VERY WELL taken care of .
When I go over yesterday to look at it I find that it is still in reverse and its electric shift so the last time it ran , some one was trying to back it up .

Best I can figure is someone either got it stuck and left for help only to have it wash away before they got back
OR
They got in a bad spot near the river , tried to back it out and lost it , I dont think its stolen or a insurance claim .

So I go over , do a quick assessment , pull the spark plug and turn the engine by hand , Not seized but full of water . Drain the oil , remove the airbox , remove the electronic display and take it apart to dry out '' still works'' , bypass the ignition switch , throw some juice to it and some starter fluid and the old girl still lives .
In fact , everything still works mi nus the electric shift .
Once we get the ok for it I will get here to the shop and flush the gas tank and rebuild the carb , brakes work but will need to be cleaned and basically just go through everything , flush , clean and oil it and we got a very nice little honda 4x4 rancher .
