    What page are these on in the Touratech catalogue? I'm searching and I can't find them - just what I need for the back of mine. Stunning:clap

    Here is a pic of an old bridge I crossed recently - located near Wellington in the Cape - South Africa. It is mainly used by passing agricultural vehicles.

    Looks like you did something highly prohibited and dangerous. The average life duration when stopped on the side of the highway is 20minutes (this is no joke at all!)

    Here is the safe way to get a pic of the Millau bridge:

    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. :evil
