Eventually I parked in the ford and took some snaps. Even though I was very low on fuel I left the engine running because I never have fancied underwater kick-starting. After a while a chap stopped his Landrover on the bridge and asked if all was well. Thanked and reassured he drove on. The engine stopped. It can seem pretty eerie up there in the late afternoon.

Anyone remember this old movie?



In the movie, during a dog fight sequence, the bi-planes fly under a bridge....

Well...... here's the bridge.



[Sorry it's a bit far away. This was as close as I could get with the bike.]

This is either a tributary of the River Tiddy, or the Tiddy.

It is gorgeous! I have a 2011 Triumph America and I love it. Thanks for the history. I enjoy looking at the pictures of your bike in all of the scenic places.

Enjoy!

Mow the bar has been raised high!

Thank you for you praise...of course I was jesting.

Now let's go to the bridge!...
I have been wanting to get one great pic of this one with the bsa at night because they light it up.
Problem being I don't go downtown much at night and there's no good legal place to park for the shot.
But hey...there's the challenge!
