Tamela Rich, from Newbie to Cross Country Veteran
If you think the idea of a cross country ride as a new rider is daunting, take a look at the story of Tamela Rich, author.
“The first hurdle to my two-wheeled lifestyle was getting a motorcycle endorsement to my driver’s license. To do this I took the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) class at my local community college, which provided the bikes and instruction.”
Properly licensed, I decided to set off on a 19-state round trip from North Carolina to Oregon and back, leaving three months after that “quick stop.”
That’s right, after only 3 months of taking her Motorcycle Safety course, she took of on a cross country, solo journey! You will definitely not be alone on the Sisters Motorcycle Ride, but if you think only expert motorcyclists attempt cross country trips, you’re going to be surprised!
