Welcome to the forum. I've never heard of the Swinging Bridges Ride. Could you elaborate or provide a link for more information?

That seems like it would be fun.

My son took MP training in Fort Lost in The Woods (Fort Leonard Wood). We rode out of Rolla, Mo not ever realizing we were doing quite a bit of the Swinging Bridges Tour on two plated, stump pulling '82 XR-500's... camped where we found a good spot. Good stuff and pretty good food in Pershing, Mo. The Hideaway if I remember...? Hmmm! Been too long ago!

I've heard of it thru ADV and had a couple buds who've done it. Looks like some great rickety bridges to navigate.
