The Teslin bridge is the bane of motorcycle travel. It is an open cell metal bridge that takes our breath away while you are on it. On this entire trip I have only crossed under five very small open-cell metal bridges. You have to set up for it, reduce speed, get in a lower gear with higher RPMs and total focus on getting to the other side. The problem is the cells are assembled from hundreds of sections and they do hotline up with each other. As a result, etc section grabs your front tire and attempts to take it in it’s own direction. With enough speed and momentum the bike cam overcome the grabbing, but still it’s a total focused event. I thought about this bridge for several days knowing I would have to cross it. It went fine. I prepared, focused, and held on.
