Badass Motorcycle Broads: Meeting the ADVgrrl

Last night I went to dinner with Leslie from ADVgrrl.com. It was the first time we’ve met.

When I read on her blog that she would be coming back to Long Island, I reached out to her to see if she would be open to meeting up.

What makes you choose to meet someone – some stranger whose words you read on the internet? I’m not really sure. By and large I am really conservative when it comes to meeting other bloggers or people I talk with on social media. But, sometimes for whatever reason someone’s vibe, the things that they choose to share with the world just resonate with you.

Leslie is very easy to talk to. Very open, honest, interesting, funny – in many ways I felt like I’ve known her for ages. She was like and old friend that I just hadn’t met yet.

As a woman and a motorcyclist, she is someone I can relate to. She is in it for the love of the ride, for the grand adventure of life. Riding isn’t about adulation, ego stroking and selling sexy. Her riding and blogging experiences are something more. Her adventures are full of life and all that it entails. I appreciate that.

I came away from our meeting hoping that we will remain in touch. Her perspective gave me a lot to think about. I’m so glad that we met.

If you’re one of the 8 people who don’t read her blog – you should go there. Like… now.

Oh! Before I forget – We took this awesome photo of our meeting. Nice, right?

Okay. We didn’t really take that photo. But, I bet I had you fooled with the way I really captured out likenesses, didn’t I?

Ride Report: Return from the Edge of Void Rally 9

I have returned from peering over the edge of the Void 9. A big ‘thank you’ goes out to everyone who followed along on the SPOT and sent words of encouragement. You guys are the best.

The wet weather definitely made for additional challenges. But was I triumphant in my quest? Well, you’ll just have to read the full ride report to find out.

Travel Souvenirs – Send me a Postcard, Please!

I’m so knocked out by how many people have sent in their addresses to get a postcard from me. Thank you! I’d love to get postcards from you, too. If your pen is burning a hole in your pocket and you want to send me a postcard from your travels, please do!

Thanks again, Kathy for the inspiration!

And thanks, Ed for the Fuzzy girl image!
