A Quote from the blog of Dwain DeVille, the biker guy…

Smart people use quotes that come from the best.  Motorcycle Travel America.com’s friend, Dwaine DeVille, is just one of those considerably smart individuals; using a quote from the great John Wooden, legendary coach that led the UCLA Bruins to seven consecutive NCAA championships, he shows just how smart…how true this one is: 

“Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you,”.

Read about the great John Wooden and his many quotes! Food for thought, every one.

I’m back… I think!!

Its been way too long since I have visited all my readers here on the old blog. I am just touching base to let everyone know where I was…
My dad had a sever decline in health early last year and I spent some of it taking care of him down in California. He was, at times a real trooper. Then there were the times when he went kicking and screaming! It was a journey for all involved. In November, just after Thanksgiving, he lost the good fight but he was ready. Not that it made it any easier for the rest of us….
One of the things my father and I talked about was my website, Motorcycle Travel America.com. He loved his Harley and loved the thought that we had motorcycles in common. He wanted me to continue on with the website and enjoy my life on the back of my bikes. Although it has been a tough grind to make the website do all I want it to do, my dad helped make the decision to forge ahead. Thanks Dad!
Yesterday was my grandest meeting with the web gurus and the search for funding has begun! The need to explain why motorcyclists need more than 10 waypoints on a map of a road trip proved to be difficult but I was successful!  Now the real work begins. Business plans, proposals and charts are all I will be working on for the next month. My sweet little trike sits down in Chandler, AZ in the talented hands of Jason Sarratt from Hellcat Customs. Although I would love to be out riding her… and I would… I know that I need to get some things done first. Jason has been so patient with me and I love he and Kelly for it. There will be lots of fun to come and many more stories to be written but they will have to wait for now.
So, there you have it. I couldn’t leave everyone wondering where I went and what had happened to me. Life.. that’s what happened to me. We all have our stories! Stay tuned and I will keep writing and let everyone know where I am and how its going. If there are hiccups and I stay away too long, I will always be back!

Las Vegas, here we come!

My bags are packed and Im ready to go…. Las Vegas Bikefest is calling my name.  I feel like Im waiting to give birth. Really! Think about it; I conceived a baby..the reverse trike idea, I found the best OBGYN…builder Jason Sarratt of Hellcat Customs, I’ve seen the ultra-sound…the teaser pictures from Jason, and now I wait to see what the little critter comes out looking like…at the Las Vegas Bikefest.
This is the last picture I have seen… notice that its not a whole picture! Jason is such a tease…

Now, as Jason has made perfectly clear…. What I am about to see in Las Vegas is simply the bike with the concept showing but, its not the finished product. My beautiful baby will be worked on until early spring… pre-mature birth and she still needs the tender love and care of her pediatrition…yup, you guessed it. Jason!  I dont even care! I will be falling in love in a matter of days….Im on the count down…Wednesday, Thursday, Friday!! Stay tuned to Motorcycle Travel America’s Facebook page for the baby pictures and videos.

A very happy Lady Godiva on wheels, packed and more than ready to go.
FYI.. my spell check is mal-functioning so no wise-cracks about my spelling. Im tired!

Time to get back to that motorcycle thing I do……

Ah, summer… those long days of sunshine, friends, and the bikes we love. It has been an incredibly mild summer here in Oregon with no days in the 90s yet. That makes riding perfect for me and no time to complain about my riding gear being too hot… again, yet!
Life has been a little chaotic in my family for the last 5 months and that has taken me away from the things that I normally do, aka this blog. In addition, I havent visited on Twitter with all my friends far away, I havent even posted pictures and events on Facebook, I havent caught up on the travels of Ms. Marilyn Bragg (also, Chessie) on the pages of IronWorks Magazine (Pg 18 in the newest edition), couldnt follow the ride of my friend Tamela Rich and the Conga Line, missed a trip to photograph those amazing ladies in the Conga Line with my dear friend Christina Shook, and have neglected my mc clubs. I am truly ashamed of how I have allowed myself to be drawn away. But, Hark!! (havent you ever wanted to just blurt that out in a conversation?) Things are about to change…..

Next post…. “When life gives you lemons…build a bike!” Jason Sarratt of Hellcat Customs is at it again….

With a wink…wink,wink…

what I did after the International Motorcycle Show…look out “Big Apple”

After the International Motorcycle Show, I didn’t have much of a voice left.  32 hours of talking to everyone that came along and I was pretty beat up.  My partner in crime, Andrea D’Assis, creator of the Wrapter hair wrap, decided that we should just take our “bucket” lists and “get lost”.  Believe me, we did that by accident!! Judging by the miles we put on our boots, we got lost and found and lost again but, we couldn’t have had more fun. Take a peek at all the pictures at Motorcycle Travel America.com via Facebook…. Click on the picture to see our adventure.

PS… Still need to send out a shout to Christina Shook. Without her invitation, we wouldn’t have had the great adventure we had. Christina, you’re the best!!

Motorcycle Travel America.com goes to the International Motorcycle Show in NYC…

I had an awesome opportunity to be a part of the International Motorcycle Show in New York City with my buddy, the author of “Chicks on Bikes”, Christina Shook.  Knowing this woman has opened my eyes to exactly what it means to put yourself out there and “just do it”.  And so, that’s exactly what I did.  I spent three days in a booth at the show and literally talked for 32 hours about the new website my family just launched, Motorcycle Travel America.com.  Yup… talked my little self into a sore throat and no voice by Sunday night. 
I only had about an hour to tour the show and enjoy the row after row of beautiful motorcycle…. and drool!  Here are the pictures of what I saw…. enjoy!!

A special thank you goes out to my friend Christina Shook. You may just push me into success and I thank you for it!!
