Happy New Year everyone! Over the Holidays I had a chance to re-read a book my father had given me when I was in my teens...Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah. It's a book about adventure, friendships, and the illusions we hold about life.  

My teenage-self held on to the adventure part--the protagonist flying his antique bi-plane around the Midwest, landing in open fields and giving people rides. No doubt Richard Bach's tale was one of the many seeds of my wanderlust. I never got into flying, yet I was able to find my sense of freedom and adventure through riding motorcycles.

Wishing you the same sense of freedom and adventure plus a big slice of the Magic of the Road in 2017. ~Alisa

Cuba 2017 and COBDR Updates
Good news about our all-ladies Cuba motorcycle trip! We have 4 spots left and we've been able to extend the registration deadline to February 4th. Alisa is working on a very exciting people to people encounter. 
A few newsletters back we mentioned that we're planning an all-ladies Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route (COBDR) July 23-30, 2017. Several women asked us for more information, and I'm pleased to report that our COBDR is already half full and the tour is not even live on the website yet. We're limiting the group to ten (10) ladies, so if our all-ladies COBDR is on your MUST DO IN 2017 list, email right away to reserve your spot. There are only five more reservations available.
