    Good traveling Liz. Any chance you will be going to the Riders for Health in Brinnon, WA August 9, 10, 11?

      Thanks Mary. I wasn’t planning on it, but then just a few weeks ago, I wasn’t planning this trip either! Are you going?

  2. Great article and very aptly timed. I am about to embark on a RTW motorbike trip with my boyfriend on a quest to find out what makes people happy around the world. I guess we can skip the UK, as we now know what the answer is! Looking forward to connecting with you and sharing great motorbike stories 🙂

      LOL. That’s fabulous Phoebe! What an adventure you’ll have. I’ll look forward to reading your stories. When will you be in Ontario, Canada? Would be great to meet up!

      Safe travels!

      Liz

      • Hi Liz,

        Yes, most definitely – would love to meet up. I can’t say for sure when we’ll be in Ontario, as we are starting in Europe and heading East, so won’t be for a while unfortunately. For now, we’ll have to remain twitter friends and pen pals 🙂

        So happy to be connected!
