Metamorphosis: Skeptic to Motorcycle Momma in 30 Days

A Note from the Editor:

Many a rider with 20+ years experience remembers with fondness the good old days of the 1970ís and 1980ís, when the ubiquitous UJM (universal Japanese motorcycle) was transforming the face of motorcycle touring. A burgeoning line of affordable and bullet-proof bikes enabled a generation of riders to pursue their dreams across Americaís highways. Just ask Lynda, whose husband JimmieS picked up a Kawasaki Z 550 in 1980 when...

Just finished reading and am so excited to do a trip like this myself. What do you feel this trip cost? I am thinking around $5000.00. Am I close??

Thank you for the great post!!

I am all smiles thinking of what a wonderful way for you and your longtime 'bride' to cement your love for one another It was clearly a romantic trip for the two of you, in the classiest of ways.

Jim,

I don't know if you will ever see this but if you do, thank you for refering me to your 2006 travels. I enjoyed reading about it as much as your trips for 2009.

My wife and I along with two other couples make a trip or two every year. 2007, we left our homes in Southern Indiana and rode to South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and then back to Indiana.

2008, we rode to Niagara Falls then south through Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia. We then headed home across West Virginia and Kentucky.

2009, one of the couples didn't go. We went north through Wisconsin, Minnesota and then west through North Dakota, Montana. We crossed the Beartooth Mountains and went into Yellowstone. We then rode through the Grand Tetons to Jackson, Wyoming. We then crossed into Idaho and Utah. From Utah it was across Colorado and home.

I wish I were more computer savy so I could post our trip as you have.

Thanks again and keep posting your travels.

Gary
