An experienced biker, my brother's been telling me to try the BMW 650 and I’ve hesitated because of its height. I’m a new rider with a 28? inseam and I WANT MY FEET ON THE GROUND! He, like other experienced riders, poo-poos this preference, saying, “If you get both feet on the ground you’ll develop bad riding habits that require both feet on the ground…if you can ride dirt bike style and stop with one foot you can ride anything.”
This travel blog will feature books about the regions I'll travel this summer along with those on motorcycles, women in mid-life with a dose of wanderlust, and whatever else I think fits the theme. Up this month: Investment Biker, Adventure Capitalist, Tales of a Female Nomad, Lincoln Highway, and The Cactus Eaters.
Details are sketchy, but I know I'm leaving Charlotte, NC on 6/26/10 and passing through Cheyenne, WY on 7/8-9 with the Conga III ride to benefit breast cancer research.
Please weigh in on tourist kitsch stops coming or going.
