  2. Great shots! But something has always puzzled me. Why cover a bridge?

    They are made from wood, it keeps the weather off, no other reason.

    covered bridge

    I come from covered bridge country also Joe.
    Raised in southern Indiana close to rockville with a ton of covered bridges. Nice place to rest after a bike ride.
    Open horse carriages used to wait out storms in them also.
    Library wil be closing now. Nod.

    Love the covered bridges. A couple of summers ago I took my Harley on a poker run that went through 12 covered bridges.

    So seldom see covered bridges any more. Nice pictures,thank you for sharing them.

    Looks like you are getting a lot of fun out of the bike.

    Yes, I am thank you....today I rode to the Linesville (Linesville PA, 500 miles west of NYC, 500 miles east of Chicago) bike shop- I was kid in a candy store!

    The guy helped me out with a rear wheel for my next project and had.....A HALF DOZEN MOTORED BIKES, INCLUDING HIS OWN PERSONAL RIDE!!!!

    All had the China 70cc engine.
