Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Klim Adventure Summit (Rigby, ID)

Posted by on Jun 17, 2011 in Motorcycle Vagabonding | 1 comment

It was a fun way to spend a Birthday weekend last weekend, hanging around with fellow moto-adventurers.  I heard lots of folks cancelled due to weather, but the truth is except for some rain Saturay night and into Sunday morning, the weather was GREAT and so was the riding! But the BEST part was seeing Edward’s amazing new dual sport design in-the-flesh.  Klim was nice enough to give me a Badlands Pro suit last month to ride in, so I DID get the sneak preview, but SERIOUSLY. That Latitude? Not officially a women’s riding suit, but it fits ladies incredibly well.  I can’t wait to get my hands on one of them!!! (Unfortunately that will have to be in the Fall like everyone else waiting for one…) Hey, I wonder where Edward got the ideas to make Unisex gear...

Yellowstone Animal Count

Posted by on Jun 6, 2011 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, USA | Comments Off on Yellowstone Animal Count

Sadly, I didn’t see any bears in Yellowstone.  Or rather GLADLY since we camped. But I DID get to see scads of Bison. (This time I said Bison–what’s the difference between a Buffalo and a Bison? Click HERE for the answer I found.) I’ll write up a little tale of our interesting travels shortly–I need to finish up some (paid) writing first. Total Animal Count? Elk=7 Deer=1 Red Tail Hawk=1 Other Birds of Prey=3 Coyote=1 Bison=countless Baby Bison=lots! it’s baby season! Wolves=0 Bear=0 Please follow and like...

(Boy it feels good to say that) Camping season is barely here in Idaho. I’ve been wanting to ride to Yellowstone since we moved here,  a scant 2.5 hours away from the great National Park. I hope I see a buffalo and a bear! Please follow and like...

Adventuring for a Cure

Posted by on Jun 3, 2011 in Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on Adventuring for a Cure

Summer 2009 I rode with the “Dirty Dozen”, twelve women who had never ridden a motorcycle off-road, that signed up for an adventure in the wilds of Colorado. We raised over $45,000 for breast cancer cures, made lasting friendships, and pushed ourselves further than we ever thought we could. My life was changed forever. As I planned my Central & South America ride, I thought “why not” and decided to make that trip a fundraiser for breast cancer cures as well. Cancer stinks. I lost both of my grandmothers to it years ago. My father has been struggling to be healthy with 4th stage lung cancer for over a year now. I’ll join the Women’s Motorcyclist Foundation (www.womensmotorcyclistfoundation.org/) again this summer for their Adventure for a Cure in Alaska. I’m honored to be a “ride leader”, and I have...
