Talking Riding Across America - 1 girl, 1 Triumph Bonneville, 16000km

Hi Guy's,
I'm Weronika (Veronica).
After my previous trip - Riding Across Europe on 125cc motorbike ( here you can find thread ) I decide to realize my next dream... adventure across North America.
I quit my job and I want to live my dream for next few weeks.

This time I will ride on Triumph Bonneville.



I hope I'll have opportunity to meet some of You while my trip.
That's my map & I'll start my adventure from South ;)



Ohhh and I would like to thank few members of ADV Family of being true inspiration for me: kerncountykid, Cariboostrom and ruffntuff thanks for sharing your diaries

More about Riding Across America you can find on twitter: https://twitter.com/RidingAcross and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/RidingAcrossAmerica pls like them and share to your motorcycle friends

best,
Weronika

Hello Veronica,
Welcome to the USA when you arrive.
If you are going to be in the eastern Pennsylvania area,feel free to give my a call.Perhaps we could ride in the hills of Pa.If you would need a garage & tools for whatever reason,mine is available for you to use.There is also a Triumph dealer near by.
Also,I make the best Prime Rib- North of the South Pole.
Best regards,
Tim.

I surely hope to be able to change your route after New Orleans. Will be keeping an eye out for you.

Hope the plan is to ride that route clockwise. Your waypoints are arranged to make it look like you are heading N out of NYC, which would be ill advised, especially this year. The NE part of the U.S. has had a terribly cold winter, and we are currently running temperatures 20-30 degrees colder than normal.

Ride safe and have fun! Do explore the back roads, and avoid the cities. The REAL culture is in the countryside, aside from a few cities, one is no different then the next.

Hi Richard!
Don't look at the order of waypoints. From New York I will ride south (clockwise)

Hi Weronica :)
I see that your route thru Texas takes you north..you might wanna re-think it. You'll be missing the great riding in the Texas hill country if you don't stay further south. Google Twisted Sisters (also known as 3 Sisters) roads....best in texas!
Good luck and God Speed.
