  • Wing World Magazine

    Earlier this year we did a covered bridge ride, had a great time. I wrote an article and submitted it to Wing World for consideration and they put it in the November issue.Thought it was pretty cool.

          Really nice article- don't have hard copy yet so it was fun to read it. Got to see one covered bridge on way back from Nova Scotia- we rode a half day into New Brunswick in rain so heavy it fell straight down on us in spite of the windshield. When it stopped raining we got off to take off our rain gear and there was a sign "covered bridge 1km"- I declared that our one sightseeing sidetrip for the day and we went and saw it, but we had none of the other historical flavor that you experienced

                I refuse to acknowledge that GWRRA even exists.

                Moons ago I submitted a comprehensive article on the Safe use of what was then called CT's. Some clown in the head office sent me an email and said CT's were unsafe. blah blah blah nonesense.

                I replied letting him know how foolish he was to be talking out the south bound end of a north bound horse.


                Well apparently this clown can't handle the Truth, and had no sense of humor. So he promptly deleted my membership and blocked me from the gay board they ran. (I only used them for towing anyways)


                So John from RA-------Eat your heart out!!!

                There is no such thing as a CT on a motorcycle-It's called a BMT by those in the know!





                Now back to your regular programing. :toast:

                    GWRRA use to be a blast back in the 90's.
                    Then a change occurred in the front office and it started going down hill.
                    We're Life members but stopped going to any functions other then Wing Ding this year as it was here in Wisconsin.

                      Nice article. I too like covered bridges. There are 10 of them within just a few miles of me over in Eastern Pennsylvania and one just North of me in New Jersey. I have created a Google Map with them on it and a Word document with some history and GPS coordinates. I love seeing them.

                      Congrats on getting published!

                          You never see any of these bridges out in this end of the country that I know of. Love the pictures of those things and nice article too.

                              We might be talking about some of the same bridges. Are they in Bucks County?

                            Very nice article. I've been to a few covered bridges, mostly in New York and Vermont. I'll keep it in mind as I live right next door.

                                Enjoyed the article.

                                    Nice article!
                                    Like Pizza Man said, back in the 90's GWRRA Wing World was a lot of fun. I was the Centerfold Picture of the November 1993 Wing World Magazine.
                                    A friend and I were on a trip west and he sent in an article with pictures. It was published. My last centerfold ever.

                                      I was not trying to start a debate about GWRRA, if you like it fine if you don't fine. The purpose of the post was to share something I thought was really cool by getting a story put into a bike magazine and to share what I thought, still think was a great adventure. It was a nice area and the bridges were amazing. If you are like me you like to see these kind of stories so you can plan some future rides.
