    Pretty neat. My life is quite dull in comparison.

    Great video.

    My first gf rode an R65LS. A few years after we parted ways, she bought an R80GS PD and with another fella set off to ride from Sydney to London. There was a falling out between them along the way so she finished the journey solo, she had to disguise herself as a man in certain countries to prevent unwelcome advances from people who wanted to either race her off or kill her for doing things that women shouldn't do (ie be free to move through the world independently of men).

    And, she did it on ONE Tank of Gas!

    I can honestly say, I could never make a ride like that.

    Recognize the guy on the right? That's Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers. The gal on the left is his wife, Cris Sommer-Simmonds, co-founder of Harley Women Magazine and an author specializing in motorcycling. She's been inducted into the American Motorcycle Association Hall of Fame three times. In the pic they are getting ready to ride the cross-country Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run 2016 across the U.S. on pre-1916 motorcycles.

    Here she is riding in Wyoming in 1981.

    My wife? She's the most solid rider I've ever carried. She's just as solid as a rock back there.

    I wonder: does she live alone in that tower?

    To me, it looks like a medieval keep.

    However, I don't think any of them were that tall.
