I love reading these articles. They give me courage to do what I want.
And I plan on touring the state some day, on my bike. 2002 Indian Chief Deluxe.

There is nothing more freeing than a solo journey. After getting my first driver's license at the age of 50 (motorcycle only) I wanted to do a "big" ride for my 55th birthday, this evolved into a 5000k trip in 10 riding days through the backroads of Ontario, along the south shore of the St. Lawrence river to the Gaspe, through New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and back (with a stop at the Wharf Rat Rally in Digby, NS).

After having to detour to Dartmouth for bike repairs, I ride a 77 Shovel, -- starter brushes went -- (the help I received from strangers and friends on this trip was amazing, bike would not start, after a major teardown in the hotel parking lot, with half the riders there offering some kind of help, tools, trailers, money, all to make sure I got home; my faith in people sure went up!), I took the long way back through nothing but wilderness and mountaintops in central New Brunswick along the old logging road. The sense of peace sitting alone on a mountaintop was incredible experience!

I applaud the women in your article as they have discovered the freedom and adventure of solo travel in a big way. Many of us had responsibilities of raising children for many years and this is the first kick at the can at that kind of freedom. Ladies, don't be afraid to go it alone! Get out there and live a dream!

Wow! I am always in great respect and awe of people, in particular, women riders. who actually do what they dream of doing.

I love to read about other women doing adventurous rides. In 1997 I rode a Royal Enfield solo around the edge of India. To my knowledge no other woman accomplished that before me. But if so, I'd love to hear from her. I'm working on a book titled "Naked on the Edge: a Motorcycle, a Goddess, and a Journey Around India." I've posted some things about it at edgeofindia.blogspot.com.
