Default Four Friends and the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail

Well, a couple of friends and I were talking about taking a small trip sometime in the middle of September. We again decided on the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail. Last year we rode the trail, but being our first adventure ride we didn't make the complete trail.(First trip and the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail.). We left Northern Illinois on September 13 and headed Northwest to Galena to the start of the trail. I rode my 2005 DL650, Mark rode his DL1000, Brad sold his DR350 and bought a DRZ400, which he rode. The new guy Rod rode his DL650.

Here we are at the Point of Beginning.( the start of the trail)

Well, after we checked out the "cut out" we continued through the Iowa section of the TWAT. We found this very nice bridge on the route. Should we take the bridge or go around it.
