Very nice shots you took! I never get tired of the Sawtooths and the roads leading to there. Where was the first picture taken? I don't believe I've ever seen that bridge at least from that angle.

I believe they call it the Hansen bridge. It's on Hwy 50 east of Twin Falls. According to the history I could find, this bridge is the 1966 replacement for a suspension bridge that had been built there in 1919.

Here's a fun link. http://highestbridges.com/wiki/index...en_1966_Bridge

Excellent photos and thanks for contributing.

Thanks for the excellent bike review. I was excited when they introduced the trophy and when I sat on it I found it to be very cramped as well.

I'm not sure what the paper rags have to gain by making everything sound peachy. We all know motorcycles are the funnest thing since sex....there's no need to sugar coat the imperfections of a particular machine. I couldn't be the first person to ride a Trophy that's noticed it's flaws.



To all those who have enjoyed my report so far, thank you for your kind words.

Some very nice pictures, thanks.

I'm guessing those motorcycle journalists have to dance a thin line of being totally truthful, and sugar coating things a bit. I mean if they totally trash the bike in a review, they risk being black balled and never being asked by any manufacturer to a bike test again, and their editor would probably dump the article in fear of loosing the bike company as an advertiser. That's one of the nice things about the internet, anyone can review a bike and be honest!
