Only thing I liked about that flick was the banjo gig. I told my daughter, "hey that looks like Chad your EX." She didn't think it was funny.
I did. :woohoo: He's a moron. :lol:

I love old bridges. Don't believe on burning them unless I have to. :lol: When my friend bought Hole in the Hills, there was a flat car as a bridge across the gorge Bee Gum Creek made. 200 year old ranch with apple trees along the creek. God I miss that place. 25 miles of logging roads to get there. Enough of that. Bring on more bridges. :woohoo:

...Sweet pix! Brings tears to my eyes, though. Just sold my Z1-R that looked just like the one in your pix. (Minus the fuzzy seat) Too many bikes, something had to go. :pinch:

...That's an awesome group you have there. Like Steve said, wish I had that many Z's around to play with. I just don't see many around here anymore. Definitely not in that condition if I do see one. Lucky you! :)

...As you can see, I mostly ride solo because of it. :side:


...Plus, you get to do goofy things, waste time and don't have to listen to someone bitch about getting home to the Wife, or Girlfriend. :whistle: ;)

...Well, I'm on vacation and trying to ride as much as possible. In my 4 hour trek today, I came across this little gem of a bridge in the middle of some state park land today. A steel and wood, one lane bridge. No biggie, but a pretty cool bridge for out in the middle of nowhere.





...Also found these little gems on the ride.

That's a dandy KR,

Headed to the Illinois Blues Fest in Peoria tomorrow, it is on the river and they have a real nice bridge right through it B)

...Lots of cool stuff on the Old Mine Road. Very old stuff! They were going to flood part of the area as a water shed. Kicked lots of people out of their homes and never did anything with it. :)

...Blues Fest? Now, that's something I could get into! :cheer:

...Make sure you take some pix. ;)

...That bridge reminds me of a covered bridge up in Ticonderoga, New York. Looks just like it and is about the same size. Love those old wooden covered bridges. :)
