No pic but...

Not that I'm daring or tempting people or anything. After all, I'm sure no one here would consider doing anything that might run afoul of the law, but I haven't seen any pics of bikes crossing this bridge:

but I'm sure it would be pretty cool if someone did. Not that I am tempting anyone.
