Great story, just hope I make it that far on the bike.

That is amazing! Another female rider I find inspirational is Rosie Gabrielle, she does solo trips around the world, living the dream instead of waiting for 'some day'. Plus her main bike is an old Shadow

I was one day dwelling on getting that Vic. Too much bike, I was pondering?? ...Just then, a little old lady on Goldwing, wearing a t-shirt, bandanna and a HUGE smile on her face, leaned in around the corner..

Yup!

...They're out there!

Along those lines, I've met two older ladies, their names escape me right now. One rode her little red Honda scooter (Metropolitan?) the entire Run-For-The-Wall. She was well in to her 60's when I first met her. Another lady, for her 70th birthday rode her street legal Honda CRF-250 dirt bike from Columbia to the bottom of the continent... beyond Patagonia. She did the trip solo for the majority of the way. Amazing ladies, both of them. Comes to show that #1: it's not the bike that counts, and #2, age doesn't mean diddly either if you don't allow yourself to succumb to it. My life is measurably better from meeting these two ladies.

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

I agree Rosie is awesome....another female rider I admire is Bessie Stringfield (February 9,1911 – February 1993), nicknamed "The Motorcycle Queen of Miami", was the first Jamaican-American woman to ride across the United States solo, and during World War II she ... Stringfield was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1911 to a black Jamaican father and a white Dutch mother. She is truly an inspiration...
