He thought he was saving the bike... for a second.
That was the only funny part. I was a river guide for two summers. Moving water is scary stuff even when you know what you are doing. You just don't screw with it. I picked a half drowned guy out of the Roaring fork almost a mile down from where he fell in. He was in calf high water and it swept his feet out and he was lucky I was in the river and saw it happen. I was about 150 yards upstream from him with two clients in the boat fishing, it took that long for me to row like a banshee and catch up with him and pull him in the skiff.
