Last week was intense. California spoiled me with stunning roads. After Big Sur I thought that nothing will surprise me... and BANG!! I rode Higway 1 from Janner to Mendocino, Ca. Wild beaches, twisty road, fog over the mountains, low traffic… and just me & Bonneville on the road… ‘We’ had to be careful because precipice waited to swallow tourist that stare to long while riding.
And then came time for Oregon. The state in which… rain… makes Oregon green. And it was cloudy, rainy, wet… chilly… I was riding Pacific Coast Highway till Lincoln City where I said good bye to the Pacific Ocean and I went to Portland. City that I barely know but thanks to my Couchsurfing Hosts (Amy & Carl) I tasted it a little bit and discover that many movies were made there like Twilight, Mr Brooks or The Road…
After Portland time came for Seattle and Washington state. With Bonneville we had to face with few storms… I was lucky because I have great Triumph Navigator Jacket which can stand heavy rains and I don’t need to wear rain gear! But Bonneville... that poor guy had to struggle with water by himself… lucky in Seattle we found a shelter in one of the ADVrider members house - Marcin vel. Huzar. Which was full of other ‘bikes’ so Bonneville could complain to other motorcycle where this crazy, blond, Polish chic took him... :P

Hey Weronika,

I was following your FB thread and didn't know you were here on ADV. Now I have a lot of reading to do.
Hopefully we can meet when you get back here in NY.

Save travels
Powodzenia

Awesome trip and best of luck on the remainder of your journey!

I love the fact that you are doing this on a Bonneville. When doing a trip like this its easy to get sucked into 'practicality' and get on some Vstrom for luggage, or a big comfy sport tourer. But that takes away from the main premise of motorcycling - getting out there and doing what you love. The only way to do what you love on a bike is to get on a bike you have some emotional attachment to, especially if its not the most practical for the job. Not to say that a Bonneville is a bad touring bike - I imagine its quite good for that job. Its just great to see a trip done on a specific motorcycle because that is the motorcycle you love, not because its the 'correct' choice for the type of trip.

"Hey, it's the Polish Girl." I think that's what I blurted out when I walked up to you for that brief chat stopped on the Duffy Lake Road. Wish we could have had more time to talk.
Your pics are amazing. Keep em coming. My trip has been cut short and I am headed back home. So, if you drop down towards the Nelson area and need a couch, there's one at my place for ya. Good luck and drive safe.
Toad.

Awesome adventure good to see a women doing this alone, maybe it will inspire more women to become riders.

I got my wife into riding a couple years ago and she loves it.

Ride safe Weronika and keep the rubber side down.

"Welcome in Canada!" That’s what I heard from Publican at the Canadian border. Now I realize how many kilometers I already rode,… that slowly I’m coming back “home” with Bonneville... to New York. But before I’ll again see the Statue of Liberty... I’ll ride via lots of interesting routes if only the weather allows me. Last time when I checked the weather it turned out that it's snowing in Montana... and I'm not going to fix ski on Bonneville...
But I have to share with you with something else... on every mile I deal with amazing hospitality! And so it is in Vancouver! I was greeted with “Makowiec” (polish cake) and “Barszcz” (a traditional polish soup)... yes, yes!! Katarina, who took me under her roof wanted to greet me in a exceptionally way that I would fell like at home for a moment. I must admit that she succeeded.
And so we spent the last two days speaking in English, Slovak and Polish and creating here in the far, far away land a piece of our Slavic land.
