2000 BMW R1100RT ( traded in with 111,000 miles)

all over Northeast especially upstate NY and Vermont.  My best ride has to be Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica, California. My second best ride was coming back from Santa Monica. through all the National Parks.

I became interested in motorcycles when my husband came to take me out on a blind date.  (My sister told me to lock the doors!).  The date went well and I loved the motorcycle. I continued to ride with my husband for 11 years.  I took the M/C course to make myself a better passenger. I loved it and began riding in 1996.

I love touring on my motorcycle.  I feel connected, one with the motorcycle. I love the smells and sounds on the motorcycle, something you will never get in a car. Like my husband says: If I have to explain, you wouldn’t understand.
