Hit the Road: A Woman's Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring

I wrote Hit The Road, A Woman’s Guide To Solo Motorcycle Touring to help readers experience the joy that a solo road trip gives me. It includes practical tips that anyone can use—whether traveling alone or with others, and regardless of sex.

Solo-wanderlust or solo-curious?

Group riding is great, and so is solo! Yet, my research shows that two-thirds of women riders have limited or no experience traveling alone by motorcycle.

Whether you have solo-wanderlust or are solo-curious, Hit the Road includes my stories from the road as well as checklists, tips, and resources for anyone who wants to get the best out of a two-wheeled adventure.

Lacking in courage or mechanical skills?

I belong to several women rider groups on Facebook where members confide that the men in their lives discourage solo travel, but that’s not the only reason they tend to tour with companions. Fear and lack of confidence in their mechanical skills are also reasons that hold some women back.

I have faced these obstacles myself, and share my experiences, advice, and encouragement in the book. Hit the Road discusses travel safety head-on, including how to deal with the travel dangers that women fear most.

Hit The Road helps readers:

1. Identify their Traveler Type

2. Learn to plan the perfect itinerary for their Traveler Type

3. Understand their fears and how to overcome them

4. Choose personal safety devices and strategies best suited to them

5. Learn money-saving tips, such as how to avoid credit checks when applying for a loan,—to spend more time on the road

6. Prepare for travel by downloading checklists for packing, mechanical inspections, tools, and emergencies

7. Understand what to do if something unwelcome happens on a trip

8. Experience the joy of traveling solo without feeling lonely

And much more…
