If you get the other Georgia tag, it may be time to unify this thing under one tag thread

Updating the map now.
I was going to ride up to Murphy NC and get the NC tag tomorrow, but someone picked it up today.

This is the longest covered bridge in Georgia at 229ft.
(It's also easily the most photogenic, but I can't show you any more pictures because it would give it away)

The road name is "Covered Bridge Road".

It's in a State Park.

Good luck!

Dam you I was going to use that one also. Well I know where it is

Try again


Covered Bridge at Watson Mill Bridge State Park near Comer, Ga.
Ignore the date stamp on the pic, It resets when I change batteries for some reason. I really was there today.
Want proof?

Oooh, Look! Is that a streetfightered Yamaha coming down the hill on the other side of the bridge? Could it be another ADV Rider?
It sure was. I beat Skunk(? forgot the full screen name) by a whole 3 minutes. He will probably be posting soon.
Sorry man.

Bruced!

Why yes, yes it was anothger ADVrider. I left out after eating with my wife this afternoon and took the scenic route down to Watson Mill, taking shots of what the new TAG was going to be if I got it. As I pulled down to the bridge, I saw Monkee's flash go off and was like "Damnit!" No other reason for a motorcycle to be taking that angle unless it was an advrider. I pulled up and talked to him for a bit, and took my own picture. We both wanted to get home before dark, and he lives closer to there than me. Had I not taken the direct route and not stopped to eat on the way home, I would have gotten it up first. Here's my pics:

Sorry, Didn't know I had to post it right away. I picked it up on my way home from the bridge tag, just uploaded it.



Located about 100 yards north of I-20 in Warren County near a bridge, you can come at this church from three different directions, each one dirt.

Read the very first post in this thread though. I think kdscoates needs to change it, it says that any tag claiming must have new tag with it. No one does that, we need to change it.
