Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist - Summer 2012

by Madeleine Velazquez
(Worcester, Massachusetts, USA)


It has been a while since I submitted anything for lack of a good method to do so. Finally an opportunity came up with an article I wrote to share and compete for a little gas money. Here is the link of the article and I am wondering if you would give me a vote on the stars at the top of my little picture that says, "Panama".


I am planning a ride to Alaska and 2 people that offered to ride with me have both backed out. My ride starts in the Boston Massachuesetts area, heading into Canada via the Trans-Canada highway. I plan on taking some side roads for sightseeing. My goal is to start riding the last week in June 2013. Cannot give an exact date because I am a teacher and New England weather is unpredictable. We hve to make up snow days at the end of the school year.

If you would like to join me, please let me know. You can ride with me part of the way. It will be a round trip ride. After Alaska I plan to ride south to Washington then east.

Thank you in advance for your vote and looking forward to hearing from you.

update to my Alaska ride
by: Missrider

After careful consideration riding to Alaska, I decided to postpone it until the summer of 2014. Besides financial reasons, I want to wait until I have purchased a new bike. I am searching for a BMW F700GS for the ride to Alaska. As much as I love my current Triumph Bonneville, I prefer a new bike for future rides.

This summer I will be riding to Newfoundland, around the Great Lakes and to South Carolina. All are short rides but my goal is to learn how to camp while travelling via motorcycle. We all need goals!!!

Thank you for following my riding adventures, keep your dreams alive and ride!!!

Madeline ...

You should have posted your map and set "gathering points". That way women can hook up and ride with you a bit along the way. You could post exact location and dates as you go ... meeting up at places that provide for motorcycles along the way.

Just a thought.
