Wink Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist, Summer 2012

Someone asked, "share more about your ride to Central America!". So here is one story. More sharing in the future. My next ride will be to Alaska, it will be another very long ride. My goal is to complete my North American tour within 3 years during my teacher vacation time in the summer. The tour will be completed riding my beloved Triumph Bonneville SE. What an amazing bike how it has allowed me to treat her like a touring bike. So many people used to tell me that the bike is not suited for it. I have demonstrated that the bike is that plus more.....

Here is the article sharing a little with you.

looking for votes

My students would love for me to win the $100 so I can get them donuts. I have until this Friday to get votes. Can you vote for me? You can click on the star at the top of my picture that says, "Panama".
Thank you in advance for voting.

By the way, I am looking for riders to accompany me for my ride to Alaska from the Boston Massachusetts area.

Thank you Madeline for the more frequent update. Accidentally voted twice. Sorry.

BTW, if you ever back in Florida, remember my uncle and his wife are wonderful cooks!
