Rusty, its better known as the flower bridge in Simsbury. It's a nice place to visit when the flowers are blooming during warmer weather, or on a dark and foggy night in February.

A.J nice job on the double grab,
Now where to find a footbridge in northwest CT??

Thanks. I live 2 towns away and go to and through Simsbury (last 40 years) and never saw or heard of it. I'll check it out in warm weather with Mrs. Rocket.

Better yet, What highway is this new ped. bridge crossing over?

I can't seem to recall any relatively new Highways in the last 20 years up our way.

I picked up the gen location with your hints and found it in google maps, but then when I went to street view to confirm it shows construction on one side and a dirt road-ish area on the other, left me like , it's so new google hadn't updated it yet
I need a "real" dual sport if I am going to really play along in these TOR's, playing in highway traffic just isn't fun on my dirt bike , still though, nice evening for a ride

With you there blitch. My DR is still too much of a dirt bike and Bristol too much of a city for me.

son of a gun, I searched 72 back and forth yesterday and I didn't see it. I just never figured it had been a street once. Also, I drive 72 a lot, but not that part of it.

doesn't look like any of us will be getting it tonight if the forecast holds up.

The kick of it is, I have a street bike but hate it, but it's no fun/uninspiring. I treat it like a red headed step child and keep it locked up in the darkest parts of the garage. I even robbed the battery out of it for my kids powerwheels... that un-sissified it for em, now it can power slide through turns.
I've been keeping my eyes open for a big adventure bike or a sidecar rig so kids can come along, but as with life, when I have the money no such luck, and when there is a deal never enough money, and so it goes
