Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-GSPD Blues

Posted by on Aug 13, 2012 in Continental Divide Trail, USA | Comments Off on Motorcycle Ride the Continental Divide (Riding the Divide)-GSPD Blues

We awoke to free range cows grazing near the camp site. It took a while to pack up, but we weren’t feeling any particular hurry. It was a lovely morning and we were in the Gila mountains…and ready to explore. The first bit was through the forest, then along a stream bed that alternated being our road bed. It was the first challenging bit of terrain and we were eating it up.     Gotta love tight, winding forest roads. Eventually the road opened up and we were back out onto the high desert prairie. At one point we were having so much fun we totally got off-route…and didn’t care!   It was a bummer, however, when we DID get back on the right road, since it was dried muddy ruts.   But I suppose it could have been...

Here’s a video I shot while having an incredible riding day through the Gilas…we wound in and out of this stream bed for several miles. It felt great to be on such a capable motorcycle (my 2006 KTM 950 Adventure of course) 🙂   Motorcycle Riding the Continental Divide – Gila Mountains   Please follow and like...

Made it to Antelope Wells Aug 5th.     Then we started riding North. [Alisa has a small meltdown in Lordsburg over the mysterious workings of her new GPS, and then the trip continues. ] We finally start riding our first bit of dirt, and it throws us a loop within the first mile: thin gravel turns into deep gravel (or worse, sand) int eh blink of an eye. Note to selves: pay keen attention at all times!                 (It’s also called the Chino mine and here’s more info on it if you are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Chino_Mine)   Back onto some dirt:               Please follow and like...

Here are some pictures from the dual sport ride sponsored by Carson City KTM at the AMA Women & Motorcycling Conference. Thanks, George, for showing us a lovely, if slightly arduous challenging, “all levels” route. I sure got a workout on my 950!                                     Please follow and like...

AMA Women & Motorcycling Conference Pics

Meet Jasmine. I met her at the Horizon’s Unlimited Travelers’ Event in Cambria, CA last year. She’d just ridden 300 miles, her longest day ever, and she said she was so tired she felt like crying. I was so happy to see her at the AMA Event (and really impressed with her husband Michael that he took the time to ride with her here.)   So, fast-forward 8 months, and here’s Jasmine’s bike now:     That, my friends, is a picture of her bike from her last two months of riding! She’s been all over, and is a super trooper. She’s pushed her boundaries all over the place, and for me is a role model on going for your dream and not giving up. She’s also proof that you can be sexy and feminine and still a biker...
