SALT WATER Almost DESTROYED our MOTORCYCLES - Ducati Multistrada & Transalp



alright alright slow down you're right what up dude Julio where's the yes how's it going stretching that check out I this is the thing we're like I was like I can't accept that the feet from yesterday like I have to get on that Salt Lake it should be impossible and then Julio's like yeah yeah I want to get there on – we got to try it – no yeah I must do it everything's gonna come off so the panniers although the panniers do help it when it falls yes I actually would leave the make it yeah leave the panniers on cuz you don't want yours to be flat in the water I'm excited but I'm a little scared well that's that I had this feeling in my tummy yesterday when I was going in and I got to cover up the bike in the front cuz it's a catch-22 I learned yesterday you don't want to spray water because the salt will destroy your electronics and if there's something about river crossing is you got to keep momentum but you can't really do that because it will spray up and Alps electronics is just there exposed I'm gonna see if I can cover it up somehow cuz I think I wasn't gonna do it but I don't know when you courage other people and you get a little more confidence okay I drop at least somebody else that can help me out there yeah let's see this big gap where the old Transalp exhaust used to be no good regulator rectifier right there gonna cover it up we have duct tape and plastic bag battery side cover let the fire baklava run all the cables here and entry here but leaving the radiator open because it needs airflow can't hurt right also it has a precaution in that you're greasing up the link so inevitably v40 so using changing its prey on the exhaust – but I don't know that might kill us sooner the fumes then and the salt got my pair of socks here from yesterday they're almost dry they're very crusty and I swear that's because of the Salt Lake I'm gonna have a little operation once we get there yeah there you go yeah so once we get there we'll have a sip beaches to celebrate that we got it oh it is I think we just about ready a Coolio let's do it let's do some stupid shit we're back from war they're winning today unfortunately that means that once we get to the really good part there were no way we can see the bottom anyway I think it's gonna work I believe it I'm so scared that's the easy part this is the good stuff of riding you know when you don't know if you can you see that's where we're going to go that's the Salton Sea that was that was slippery bouncy run this second island yeah I can't believe I did that you can still see the bottom by the looks of it yeah yeah how much farther do you think we gotta go dude this is this is going to be a pretty good trick it's gonna be double dis where we just done the easy stuff yeah that's the slush right we had a plan of attack perhaps remember that calm down calm down yeah boy yeah I got it you got a slow down you got it all over you too right folks final dash oh yes God yeah oh this is

  1. We're back! Not at the bottom of the lake, fallen of a mountain or in a ditch somewhere, thanks for caring. Quite a mission to cram this whole day in under 20 minutes, a lot of cutting. Who would want to see more of this day?

  2. Awesome video dude, although I couldn't put any of my motorcycles through that much salt water (not even my old XT660R), never mind a Multistrada, pure cruelty to machinery. Made great viewing though. Loved it man. Wish I was their with you, on someone else's motorcycle 😂
    👌👍

  3. Awesome video pedro!! Wow what a place to visit. The picture with the bike in the forefront and sunrise in background was awesome. Looking forward to your next video

  4. Olá Pedro, parabéns pelo vídeo! Vou ao Uyuni na semana antes do Natal deste ano. Espero que não tenha mais água do que esta que vocês enfrentaram, do contrário não terei coragem de expor o meu Suzuki Jimny, parceiro de viagem.

  6. Grande Pedro! That's one amazing place and you guys made it! 🙂 Alp is tough! Abraços de Portugal

  7. Who cares if Alp rusts, if you could get that amount of fun it was worth it! Worst case scenario you'll have to change some parts and you'll have new wrenching footage for the channel.

    BTW, if you head down to Argentina again, check out viajeros 4×4 page, those guys have lots of info on lost roads like the ones you did from Atacama to Uyuni.

    Nice to see new videos, enjoy!

  10. In 40 years of riding motorcycles in Africa there is one thing one never does … deliberately go out to have fun in salt(y) water … unfortunately this will rear its ugly head when you least expect it.

  11. Glad your back my friend. I would have loved to do that with you two. Bikes can be replaced, the memories you will have forever. 👍👍🤙🇺🇸

  12. Glad you are posting again. I was picturing you in a Bolivian jail, but after this video I think you were more likely to have been put in a local sanitarium. Keep the adventure going!!!

  13. I wouldn’t have done it. I’m so glad you both are ok. I was on the edge of my seat in my full “hovering mom” role…. “you boys be careful!”

  17. This caused me serious pain to watch. Reminded me of that scene in 'Dantes Peak' when they're driving that truck through the lava field. I know you love your bike. Seriously ballsy move brother…

  18. For sale Ducati Multistrada. Never been off- road. Never been through water. Only ridden on Sundays 😂

    Awesome Vid mate Good to see you back

  19. Loved the Bolivian guy at 5:10 and what seems to be an old honda just cruising by so calmly

  20. I had to stop the video to say “That’s some stupid shit”. Dude how could you voluntarily put your precious ride through that kind of torture test. That’s just plain 😜 More power to you, though.

  21. I sent this video over to the Bolivian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Motorcylces. They said that they will be sending a couple of investigators to talk to you about the film of salt that you intentionally covered your motorcycles with. Have a good explanation ready. I heard that they can be real bad asses. 🙂
