A full tank of fuel and full on throttle the TR would got you across. maybe.
Good to hear from you.
Let's see------9.5 gallons of gas-----full throttle----------broken femur and a fire that could be seen for miles.
They'd have to call in hazmat.
Haha...yeah that sounds about right.
You're welcome BigDog. I'm glad I can share some of my favorite roads with you guy's. Can you let me in on the location of that bridge?
Here is the C&D North/East track. There is so much cool stuff on this one. Lots of field roads and stream crossings. I rode this a week or so ago and there was a couple crossings that I wouldn't have done by myself.
Here is another one. I used this for my bachelor party ride last Sunday. There's around a dozen low crossings on this one,
Here you go--------it's over the Little Wabash River. Waypoint is "BR Closed 2016"
My Roads and Rec mapsource mapping software says it's the "Tate Bridge".
It is so worth the visit-----getting to it from the West or East if both a real hoot.
Coming to it from the West you feel like your are trespassing and riding thru a farmers field------you are not. I've never seen it so muddy I couldn't get to it.
Here's a map of it----you'll see another bridge Northwest of it--------I haven't been to it in a long time------I barely remember it but I think it's called the "HodgsonBridge". Just looked on google earth----it's gone and also just remembered
the concrete foundations of it are still there. And you'll probably be trespassing to see it.
From the North the road has went back to nature---but I got to it.
From the South------I ran into a "No trespassing" sign and some guy was there .
He never saw me and I just turned around. I got a picture somewhere.
The waypoint "JaysCrash"-----is where a buddy of mine crashed---had to pull him out of a ditch--years ago.
Thanks! Yea. Im ready for it to dry up a little too.
Found the picture of the Hodgson Bridge.
Waypoint file of 475 old Illinois bridges.
Here's one you would like. Locals call this Rockey Ford bridge. It's on the C&D south/west track. The waypoint might also be "old Boy Scout camp.
Thanks for the waypoint file. Good stuff
Can't wait to ride the routes Kevin, thank you thank you.
This is a track I made combining the Covered Bridges of Indiana track with the 2015 ROD track with some stuff that I added also. We started it from Clinton and went right into the sweet sand road. There were a couple of "road closed" signs that weren't there last fall but we did not detour from the track, just got creative. Basecamp says it's 194 miles all great roads. The longest distance between gas is less than 70 miles. Do yourself a favor and stop at Pattons corner and Jungle Park Speedway.
On this last track I've posted. If you are on a big bike and are not an experienced rider or just want to avoid sand and possibly mud I suggest not taking Sand road or Levee road if it's wet. If it's really dry the Sand road could be very loose deep sand also. There were a couple places where large piles of gravel were in the road but we made our way past them. This might not be so easy on a big bike but re routing to another road is easy enuff in both places. The rest of the track you could do on any motorcycle. Have fun.
Yesturday a couple of riding buddys and I went out and conected several places that I know of that have single track or quad trails together using some of the tracks that I have posted. 2 Beta 500rs and a 250L were our bikes.
We eventualy found our way close to a road I had yet to go down that is on the C&D South/West track. It's marked as waypoint "Slough road".
I had previously atempted this from the east but I could tell that there was way to much backwater that day.
This road looks great from either direction till you get further into it.
It has rained in the area but not a lot in the past few days or weeks, not enuff to flood anyway. The last few times I've been out I have a good amount of dust behind me if that gives you an idea of the conditions.
We came to this road from the west and it was great until the grass started getting tall but we kept going. Then it got slick. Then it got muddy, real muddy and water over real muddy. This continued for what seemed like an 1/8 mile and probably was. Before it was over I was pushing the Beta in 4-6" of water/mud. It did finaly get to higher ground and we all made it but it was very interesting. Definitly the Adventure of the day.
If you decide to go down Slough road expect mud and plenty of it no mater how dry it is and I would't go down it alone by any means.
We need some pictures!
Great tracks. Think I will try it with the big bike, after it dries a bit. Mark?? you didn't brave the bridge?? That would make quite a video!! Although I would rather have you around.
I was to busy surviving this road for pictures.
After doing the NAK and Loosenut rides I've decided to revamp these tracks.
Some will have improved tracks. The NE track has the most changes/improvements. All tracks will have dedicated Offroad tracks. I have also added several Waypoints.
I've been working on them and they are almost done. Hopefully I will be posting them soon.
