Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist, Summer 2012

Hi,

I am planning a ride to Alaska from the Boston Massachusetts USA area and looking for riders that can accompany me. My last ride this summer was to the Panama Canal with most of it alone. It is always more fun with other riders.

Also, I recently wrote an article sharing some of my summer adventure. Would love for you to give me a vote by clicking on the stars on top of my picture that says, "Panama". This is the link to the article. Thank you in advance for your vote.

Please send me a private message if you can join me on an epic ride to Alaska. Looking forward to hearing from you.

ride to Alaska

That would be fantastic if you could show me around AK. I would like to spend a week at least. Well, that is if I can find a reasonably priced hostel or motel to stay in. I hear it is very expensive there.... I depart the Boston area on June 28 and currently planning the ride. Not sure what day I will arrive in AK.

I am better at staying in touch with people via email. MMV11@VERIZON.NET

Hope to hear from you.

Well, a week should allow you to ride about 1/86th of the state. Just in case you did not know Alaska is 2.5 times the size of Texas. The weather is such that if you could even average 200 miles a day, you would be lucky. Just sayin...

If, by chance, our schedules coordinate, I will gladly ride with you. I very rarely get to ride with other females.

Have a safe journey up here to our amazing state!

Alaska postponed until 2014....

I decided to postpose the ride to Alaska until June 2014. I want to wait until I have my BMW F650GS for that ride.
Will be riding to Newfoundland with my Triumph Bonneville instead starting June 28, 2013.

thank you and Alaska ride postposed until 2014

Hello Folks,

After careful consideration, I have decided to wait until June 2014 to launch the ride to Alaska from the Boston area. I will however be riding to Newfoundland and a few other rides in the north east US during the summer of 2013.

Thank you to all who contacted me. I look forward to hearing from you next winter.

Madeleine
