1200 Mile Loop Map

1200 Mile Loop Map

Jim Bronson rode a red sportster, each stop on his journey holding its own adventure. I remember watching this show when I was a kid ... not long before I got my first motorcycle. Now, I'm riding a red sportster having my own adventures! It's a comfortable parallel.

Stringing together all the little rides I had anticipated this summer into a loop, I took a week at the end of August to complete the journey. Staying very close to the original itinerary, with only small alterations to the route, Rosie and I clocked 1208 miles. In the spirit of Bronson, each stop has its own story, told in episodes. Enjoy the ride!

Episodes: (read at http://gypsyspiritsrides.weebly.com/2012-then-came.html)

1 (B): MissRider - Madeline
2 (C): "The Boy"
3 (D): Among the Clouds
4: Swanton
5: To Bee or Not To Be
6 (E): Jingles
7 (F): Of Boats & Bees
8: Too Close to Ignore
9 (G): Faeries & Guardian Angels
10 (H): Cowboy's In Texas!

I would love to hear thoughts and comments from everyone ... on the ride, the website, inspirations, whatever! Thank You All!

nice blog
by: Lynn - Florida

You have a nice blog. I remember reading about Madeline's cross country trip on her Bonneville. I owned a 2007 Bonneville for nearly 2 years and called it my Steve McQueen bike. Being 55 I remember McQueen & Bronson.

I've saved your blog for future reading.

My daughter lives in Dover, NH. My next visit (in riding season) I want to rent a bike & ride.

Thanks for sharing!
