When I got my MC endorsement, almost 10 years ago now, I didn't think very much about where I'd be going on a motorcycle. I'd been on the back of a bike off and on (figuratively speaking) for 15 years. A ride meant going two towns over for dinner, or maybe an ice cream.For a long trip maybe we'd go around the Lake. A long trip was about a half day.
Shortly after I was licensed, I met a guy who had a picture on his computer screen background. It was a picture of his bike stopped on a road out west - Montana or Wyoming I think. I was completely enthralled by not only the picture but the prospect that someone could undertake such a trip, on a motorcycle. At the time I didn't dream that I could be that person, but I never forgot that image.
I like to share my story and pictures, because I hope that there will be a woman, a motorcyclist or a parent who will be inspired to do something more. And maybe one of my pictures will be an image you'll never forget.
