How "out" is it really?


REALLY out.


Just missed the shot of Leah pulling the girl card.

Bill and I were on that road and saw that sign and we stopped to figure out what to do. We very nearly ignored it but....we didn't

Ignoring "Bridge Out" signs is the definition of "Adventure Riding"



or...is that the definition of stupid?

As Tumu put it, in Vermont...

Road closed: probably passable
Bridge closed: Probably doable
Bridge out: They really mean it

Sean, et al, hi!

This might be too late for you, but good reference for others. There is a great thread on ADV about replacing the Zumo touch screen, which can be ordered via ebay. Lots of choices. Then again, you probably have already read through that thread.

I've replaced mine twice, second time due to operator error. I thought the little foam edging on the new screen acted as a gasket, and left that on instead of putting the original rubber gasket back in. First major rain storm, which happened to be at CroMag, and the now leaky screen went bad. With the second screen in and the original rubber gasket, I've had absolutely no trouble in the rain. (knock wood)

Enjoy,

Hi Baiku, hope to see you very soon. You and I can cook up a breakfast of bacon & eggs while the other guys do less important stuff, like riding motorcycles.

I'm not sure if I've attached a link correctly, but it is in our NE Region called:
RI & Eastern CT Big Bike Drop-o-Rama

I don't know any details but connected with an ADVer from Newport, he and I are meeting up Sat AM and riding up. Maybe take a swing by?

My solo ride up some powerline off of NH 118

Here's the video. Bear with the camera angle at the beginning, there's a big payoff at the end (no nudity fortunately as I was alone)
