Sunny on Solo Ride 2012It’s not often you get the opportunity to take real advantage of having some time off from work.  Well, I decided to challenge myself to a long distance journey, so I embarked on a little “Solo Ride”  (New Jersey to Texas).  This journey would take me through 9 states  ( New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas),  averaging approximately 565 miles a day.

Below is a highlight of the route (not exact) but close.

So, the journey begins…

The trip was magical.  The weather was almost perfect and my motorcycle performed outstandingly.  I was pulling my husband’s trailer so, I was very hesitant in the beginning but once I got into the groove it was smooth sailing.  There were people on the road who gave me the thumbs up and those who honked their horns and waved.  Truckers who gave me the right of way and some who simply stared at me in amazement.  I had to pinch myself a few times too!

I was able to pace myself so that I could enjoy the scenery and the ride.  It was one of those times when you wished you had someone along to share the evening with but glad you didn’t so you could just enjoy God’s blessing without any interruptions.

I check-in by phone with my husband (“TC”) at each gas and rest stop.  I also sent a text to my family and friends so, I would not be delayed by having to call everyone with my status.

Well, now that I’m all rested, relaxed and my trailer is full of goodies, I will have to make the trip back.  So stay tuned for more updates.

aka "Skert"

I started riding motorcycles in ’94. I have ridden over 200K miles on BMW’s. I got the Iron Butt fever in 1995 while listening to this guy tell of the Iron Butt Rally over a camp fire at Daytona bike week. I had already been riding long distances to get to rallies in my short little weekend hours. Next thing I know I am competing in Long Distance Endurance rallies. I made it into the 2000 ButtLite and by skin of my teeth made it into the 2001 Iron Butt Rally. The first day of the 2001 Iron Butt, I turned 50. It is all history and on my web site. I have calmed down a bit on the LD riding, but have continued to blast to upstate NY from GA to do my dropped bike demo at Americade every year and around the country for the BMW Nationals.

I was so inspired by other women at a BMW National Women Who Ride seminar. Listening to other ladies made such a difference in how I perceived riding instructions. I immediately went into action to spread the word to other ladies about sharing our knowledge. I have continued to host Women Who Ride seminars at most every rally I go to.

I saw an easy way to pick up my bike when it fell over and vowed to share this simple technique with anyone who would listen. I have a web site that is used all over the world in teaching anyone how to pick up your bike. It is on the AMA web site. I encourage anyone to copy my tech page and share it with their clubs. If I can’t make it to a rally I give a volunteer the instructions over the phone and internet. This is all about sharing and teaching.
