It is encouraging to know I am not alone in my odd interests (more on that in a moment) and I think it is cool as hell that anyone can ride 270 miles on a railbed? I have found a few beds that you can access for a <10 miles, and yet they are still amazing. Years ago, a few even had trestles on them and they wound thru such amazing scenery that has not been seen by a man in decades. My fascination with trains is recent, but my love for history is an old affliction. Just now rediscovering an outlet for my obsessions, and combining them makes it even more satisfying. Now more about the first statement - I was feeling guilty about riding to all these cool places alone, after a few friends started asking to ride along..... then MAT just sorta happened last week. Moto-Archeology Team (MAT) combines those two interests - motos & history (lost, abandoned, forgotten etc.) Does not require knobby tires or dirt bikes or skillz (but sometimes they help) So anyone interested in taking a peak is welcome to join - only rules: talk about riding motos to something historically interesting, preferably lost or abandoned (hence - archeology) Most everyone that has joined so far is living in Alabama, but there is no need to limit this to the South or even the USA? Open invite to all readers/riders https://www.facebook.com/groups/motoarchteam/ I would like to see what others are interested in and certainly any 50+ mile railbeds that are accessible?
