In 2001 I sold everything I owned to travel around the world on my motorcycle. On August 4th, 2001 I set off from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on my brand new 750cc Honda Magna to begin my journey around the globe. Two years and eleven months later, after travelling in 44 countries on 6 continents, I crossed the border back into Canada arriving home on June 30th, 2004.

On this website you will find exciting stories from my journals and pictures I took as I travelled, mostly solo, into countries most people never dream of traveling; some published articles from local newspapers and continued updates on my upcoming book.

For more information please contact me at I hope you enjoy my site.

I would like to say "Hear Me Roar" to all of the women who have accomplished their great feats. Women are finally recognized for all of the things on motorcycles and cars that everyone thought that they could not do. You are a great example for young women who have the urge but are afraid to try cycling. Now with you as role models it will be done. Keep up the good work and we appreciate you as being first in your accomplishments. Thank you for building our confidence in motorcycling, and four wheeled racing.

I would like to extend my congratulations to the Women Riders Doing Great Things mentioned and interviewed above. Being impressed with their involvement in the motorcycling community is truly to be admired. I really enjoyed reading their stories. Thank you.

I would also love to read about another female rider who sold everything she had and went on a around the world tour, alone and un-sponsored on her bike. Her name is Doris Maron, from Alberta, Canada. Would it be possible to read an interview from Doris about her amazing story sometime soon on your site?
