My weekly travels to WV come to end this weekend. I will only be going once a month after this weekend. Due to my short (shorter than usual) work weeks I have been working a lot of late nights.
I plan on being back early this weekend...I hope to be chasing tags again, soon. I was waiting on Tuesday to see where the VATOR was going to pop up, by 7:00 it was a gully washer so....she remains.
I am leaving in a few so it is safe from me for a few more days.

Two covered bridges?

I was referring to the last of Two Remaining Ducatis in NC

This is one of two remaining original covered bridges that was part of NC roads.
Built in 1911 at a cost of $40, the bridge is 54 feet in length and crosses the West Fork Branch of the Little River within the Uwharrie National Forest.
Nice area to ride..........come on down.

There's a Ducati dealer here in town that has more than that in leftover models from years ago. Of course, everyone hates them (the shop) and no one can figure out how they're still in business anyway...

Found it. And, dang, that was one area I was thinking about heading to when I left the house this morning, but went another direction. I am going to head in there soon, even if the tag is long gone.

Sitting here planning out a route for today and can't believe that's still sitting there. If I could eliminate the US 64 portion, I'd be heading that way. I refuse to believe one of you all isn't going to grab that before I could get there from Raleigh.
