Mikey,

I always ride my pig VStrom 1K to BW. I may join Kevin in the festivities before attending the races. Yes, they do hold races at BW.

Jon

Thanks...I need one of those Ural rigs so she can ride too. Don't you think she'd have fun manning the machine gun?

It warmed up nice here this afternoon and I took advantage of a few moments of sunshine to head over to the car wash and give the little piggy it's year end bath.






I drove by this creek on the way to work Sunday when everything was covered in snow. Too bad my camera wasn't along for the ride as there were lots of pic opportunities that day. But it wasn't the ground that was white anymore, it was the sky as an overcast rolled in suddenly.






Then I noticed something on the other side of the road that I'd never seen before.






How could I have never seen that bridge before? This called for some further investigations.....







Well, I'm not going to be tempted to ride across this one.....but walking is another story.







I wonder what year it was built and when it was abandoned?


















It amazes me sometimes how many things I miss that are hiding in plain sight.







Just a 1/2 mile up the street is a place that I bet knows the history of that bridge.







Another 1/2 mile and I wonder what may be the elder?








I actually remember when this place was still being occupied.







My parting shot from my short spin today......

How many people do you know that have a couple of pet Zebras?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


I remember stumbling across a mileage contest thread a few years ago. There's no way that my odos would ever be contenders in such a thread.

But it did get me to thinking maybe I should snap a pic of my odo just for kicks. Now I have 5 bikes to keep track of but one them doesn't have an odo and my wife puts some of the miles on 2 of the others, so it's still not an iron-clad total. She might ride those two as much as I ride the one w/o an odo so the totla is still probably close.

'06 DL650....................before................... .....................................after....



Total 22,753


'78 CB 400..............before........................... ..........................after...............




Total....424


'93 DR 650............before............................. ..............................after............... .




Total....1,369


'94 XR 250...................before...................... .......................after...........




Total.......137


'79 XS11...unknown, probably around 1,500


24,683+1,500=26,183...So I probably rode a little over 25k in 2010, not too bad for working full time and NOT commuting to work by bike.

Recreational miles are happy miles.

Ohoooo yea! Steel and streams!!! You just gotta love the contrast between the steel structure and a mountain stream.

Always great stuff knybanjo. I love these old truss bridges and have many times thought about a ride report with as many as I might be able to get to in a few days. There’s still a few around but in out of the way places.

You’ve probably been by this one going south on Aska road out of Blue Ridge GA over the Toccoa river.
