Rumble / Extreme SportsWhen monsoon rains hit Joshua Tree, California, Cole Gibson decided to strap on his GoPro camera and go for a wild ride on his 2002 Suzuki DRZ400E dirt bike. The flash flooding that overwhelmed the streets didn't throw him off his plans. We see him rushing through water and mud-filled streets. At one point, he comes across a puddle several inches deep and decided to have a blast, cutting through the water as it splashes all over him, covering both his visor and his GoPro camera. How does he even know where he is going?

Then he goes off the road and comes to the head of the flash flooding in one of the washes, so he decides that this is the best ride to catch in the washes. It is like an ode to the good old days, when we were young and careless and all we wanted all day long was to play in the puddles after an rainy day. Cole has a bike to match his spirit, so he takes off into the desert to get buried into dust and mud, before heading back home, drenched and caked in mud, but with a full heart.

From destroying the dirt to shredding the streets, these versatile bikes have got what it takes! We've never seen somebody so excited about mud. His bravery to go out in a weather like that is truly admirable! Oh man, that looks like so much fun!
