It may have been nice and dry but every time I went to step off it to help you my self preservation instincts kept telling me not to jump into the swiftly flowing rapids! I should have gone in from your direction, which also didn't look very safe.
You have self-preservation instincts? o_0
tRickyasaurus is like the Stig. It doesn't have instincts. It just does.
Some say that he can hypnotise sheep, and that if he could be bothered he could swim the Atlantic ocean - underwater.
Ricky, I'd say your instincts not to jump into the water were good. Tooms (being the better swimmer) was already occupied looking for the bike underwater, adding yourself to that could have been a bit much. ;)
I've seen Ricky try and swim, I think Fletch's bike did a better job of it!
