UPDATE-6/18/2003 Well I took the plunge and got a 96 goldwing aspencade trike, what a beauty!
I am a retired nurse, 67 yrs of age, have been in the
medical field for many years.
I have recently retired from the civil service commission at the U. S. Army Aeromedical Center, Ft. Rucker, Al, with over 26 yrs of nursing service/immunizations/allergy specialist. My hobby, which is solo motorcycling across the back roads of America.
Come join me in my world of motorcycling.
I have been riding for approx. 40 years, and have been taking solo trips for 35 years, as far west as Colorado, North to Maine, and on into Nova Scotia, and all over the back roads of the eastern U.S. Have met very nice people along the way, and some surprised to see a woman on a motorcycle all by herself.
The time solo, is very therapeutic for me and rejuvenates my spirits, helps me be a better person.
Music has always been a very active part in my life, and is soothing to a weary soul and stressful mind. I have reference sites for you to explore in the world of nursing, music and motorcycling for your enjoymemt.
SOLO RUNS: Sooooo, to assist me in keeping my sanity, ha, I ride motorcycles, and love it. A wonderful way to work off stress, just get away for a while. My hubby taught me how to ride years ago, starting off with a 175 cc honda, then a 350 cc and a couple 200cc, a 450cc, a 94 honda shadow vlx 600 cc, before I got my present motorcycle, a 98 honda shadow ace tourer, so I have been on my own for years, riding solo on the back roads of America, logging each year approx 4000-6000 miles. Have been as far west as Colorado Springs, Colorado,up in to the Central North states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Canada, Nova Scotia, and all in the New England states, We indeed do have an "America the Beautiful."I have been so very fortunate on all my solo trips, in that, I have not had an problems, other than the usual to expect when riding a motorcycle. Everyone has been very kind to me, some in awe, that I ride solo. So hopefully, I am off again this year Aug'2000, to travel those back roads once again, into many different routes than before, and once again discover more and more of this beautiful land, we call and can be proud of-AMERICA!!!!!! Have met many of my motor buddies on my yearly trips, and had a wonderful visit with each of them, it is like having one large family, they are the greatest!!!!!!!
June/Aug/2005~No particular place or person to visit or hang out with, just riding the back roads again, and discovering new back roads, and such beautiful country, try to connect with bikerbuddies/friends as I can along the way.Attended a Peter Love concert for THE SAVE OUR CHILDREN FOUNDATION, in Aberdeen, Ms. Ya gotta check out Mr. Peter Love's music, website, Peter Love Love heading north, so different from the flat lands of the southern countrysides. Always head toward Williamsburg, Va, to visit dear friends there for a few days, then mossie down thru the Carolinas, what beautiful country there, then finally winding down toward home. Venturing, and dreaming of next yr's trip, to once again, those back roads of America. Logged approx 5500 miles this year, Yippeee!!
Aug~2006~Headed out on back roads once again toward Ozark, Mo to visit with friends of my child justice org, KIDSINCOURT.NET, what a wonderful weekend, visiting and meeting those I had never meet,such an inspirational visit indeed. Headed east toward Pa to visit a child there, then on over to my buddy's in Williamsburg, Va. again for about a week....This year's heat was a real sizzler, having to get up around 2am and ride until about 10am, after that, it was impossible to ride any longer, due to the extreme heat. Once again heading southward, riding thru the beautiful states of N. and S. Carolina, winding down toward home....Was a great, wonderful trip on those awesome back roads of America.... Logged approx. 5000 miles this go around. Am excited and looking forward to next yr's trip, again to those back roads not yet discovered and the beauty that awaits.......2007, 2008 TRIPS COMING UP....sorry am so behind, but will update soon!
A special loving "TRIBUTE" to my dear friend in California, "THANK YOU" for being YOU!
