I'm still trying to find that Eddy Buell fellow. That bike got scribbled on in Wisconsin and I never did catch the guy in action...

Is it "Eddie" or "Eddy"? It's hard to tell from his autograph...........................

12-04-2011: Adventurin' with the Fishman and Prior

Regular readers (which includes the "other" Steve on a V-Strom ) will remember the old, arched-concrete bridge I stumbled across in my travels last weekend:

Prior had a limited-time hall pass for today, and since this beautiful old structure wasn't too far away (albeit in another state) and the boyz were keen on seeing it with their own eyes, we drew a bead on southwest Virginia and by and by found ourselves happily transported back in time:

What an amazing difference in lighting and mood between last week and today:

This photo gives a good sense of scale as to how narrow this neat old bridge is:

Hey Ferris,

Great thread, maybe this is the start of an East Coast Darth Peach. You probably won't be a popular as her for obvious reasons!

I grew up in Bluefield and Roanoke VA but live in the flat lands of NC now. I love getting back up there and riding the roads I remember as a kid and finding new ones I didn't know about. Here is one between Wytheville and Pulaski VA.


Folks didn't expect to see a couple of Beemers on that road either.

Keep adding photo's and reports. It helps me get throught the work day and keeps me motivated for the next time I can get up there.

If you are down this way (Greenville) let me know I usually have quite a few Black and Tans in the garage fridge.

The Fishman was convinced there was an old moonshine still back up this holler;
he's probably right, although we didn't find it.
Believe it or not, this is the original roadbed we're walking on:

If you look close, you can see part of the bridge railing in the upper right of the photo.
This cute little slice of history is slowly but surely returning to the earth:
