I will piggy back on your post.
Earlier this week I stopped in at a local coffee shop to distribute some business cards, I parked my bike next to another bike in the parking lot and it was loaded down with traveling gear. I looked the bike over and noticed it was from New York. When I got inside I discovered the owner of the bike was a woman that I am guessing to have been in her early sixties, she was traveling alone and on her way back from Sturgis headed for New York. I thought this was pretty cool.
