    That brings back lots of memories for me from my time living in the area. That old bridge was fun as I recall a long curve and beautiful scenery. Locked through the dam many times by water. Thanks for posting.

    I can't believe nobody asked, but there has to be a story behind this shot? Do tell?

    This was my last ride for 2016, new years eve...
    We hadnt expected the recent heavy rains to have flooded the creeks so badly, this river was our first obstacle:

    Upon investigating the 130+ year old abandoned railway bridge nearby we found someone had installed a VERY 'non compliant' trolley, the jeep on the other side was an abandoned vehicle..

    So we carefully loaded the bikes onto the trolley....

    Then slowly pushed the rickety trolley across the bridge, many times we thought the whole kit n kaboodle was going in for a swim...

    Once we made it over the old railway bridge we thought our troubles where behind us...

    But they had only just started, one does worry when the bridge is under the water!

    So what does any good ADV Rider do?

    Happy days, we made it!
    There was plenty of other bad water crossings, it usually takes 1.5hrs to do this section, on this day it took us 6 hrs and we only just made it..
    Oh not to mention where I live and where these water crossings are, man eater salt water crocodiles inhabit the rivers.
