Sandy & Lindsay Looking for Adventure!

Sandy & Lindsay Looking for Adventure!

I bought my 2009 Kawasaki Versys brand new in June of 2010 at a pretty good discount from the local dealer......put on 3,500 miles in 5 months and was sad to put it to bed due to the cold weather here in Minnesota....This picture is me with my daughter Lindsay, she loves to ride with me.....maybe someday she'll have her own bike! I can't wait to go on some long-distance rides next summer, if all of our snow here melts.....might have to wait until July but I'll get plenty of skiing in before then. One of my goals is to do the Lake Superior loop....Has anyone out there done that one? Any advice for me as I'll probably be traveling solo.....I love the adventure!

My husband and I have done the loop and it is beautiful!!I am a new rider down in Thunder Bay and I am also sad that my bike is put away for the season. Maybe I will see you down that way come spring:) Have fun skiing!! Julie

Superior Loop
by: Sandra

I've never done that run, but YEARS ago my brother and I and our significant others did a run around Lake Michigan...

CHECK THE WEATHER! We went early in the season - Memorial Day weekend - and in Illinois the winter had broken. We went north; we hit COLD; freezing rain and sleet; for extended periods of time (all day's ride)...and we did not have gear for that kind of weather.

It was a once-in-lifetime experience, and we had some great times holed up in a hotel trying to thaw out and get fresh plastic bags to wrap our feet in; but I'm certainly glad I was only a passenger on that ride.

A well-thought roadside emergency kit (flat fixing kit, basic tools and basic knowledge to use them, a bit of high energy food and some bottled water for extended stretches w/no rest areas to speak of, a good cell phone that gets signal in the area you are traveling; map the route and assure you are well fueled if there are any remote stretches where gas stations are scarce.

Oh, go ahead; find a riding buddy!

Seriously, just think through some of the worst case scenarios, and make a plan. You cannot think of everything, but you can have a general contingency plan. And make notes for the next trip, as I'm sure you will learn a LOT your first time!

Enjoy the ride - spring is coming - even to Minnesota!! (my former home)

Nice picture of you and your daughter. What a nice mother/daughter sport to share. When she gets a bike, please post a picture.
