    I think we must of passed one another on this road. My sporty and I have been out there slaying the same dragons…since 2001! Riding alone with God has been an awesome change of life for this vunerable abused gal! I hope our paths cross!

  10. Brian Scott "Doc" says:

    Hey ya Linda…ya know we love you here in Ga. I relay your tale to many first time riders, women especially. Your adventure shows just what can be accomplished when fear is evicted and wonderful new experiences are allowed in. Continue to inspire, endeavor to push the limits, love living in the moment as only a rider can. You Rock…hope to see you soon.
    Doc

  11. Cindy Gibbs says:

    Linda,
    I read your story in HOG Magazine! As I read it, I related so well to your story.

    I too was a victim of domestic abuse. I left that ugly part of my life in the dust 17 years ago. My new husband (whom I adore) has been, as he says the ‘wind beneath my tail feathers’ as he lifted me from being afraid of my own shadow, self confidence in the gutter and did not trust anyone to a confident, self assured woman who can take on the world. I believe God led me to him as he lifted me up.

    Part of my journey has included traveling with friends (which I would not have dreamed of several years ago); scuba diving and now sharing my story of survival with others. The website above is a forum of people whom I am part of which provide daily life insights for all who are interested. If I can touch one life and encourage them in some way I have had a successful day. The pinnacle of my journey so far is this…In 2006 with the encouragement of my husband I took the HD Riders Course and I learned to ride a motorcycle, at the age of 45. That Christmas my husband gave me a Demon Bell and said this was part of my Christmas present…the present…a 2007 Dyna Low Rider. I love to ride and do it with confidence all the while knowing my husband has my back and is really the wind beneath my wings.

    Again, I enjoyed your story! You are truly an inspiration to many!

    Hi, I met you yesterday at the Love Ride, I had the Dragon Fly Green bike, wow you are amazing person, and I hope to ride with you on other rides, and maybe on your next journey across the nation.

  18. Destiny says:

    I am so proud of you Linda. We are all survivors in one form or another. What we choose to make of ourselves is totally reliant on our strength to ask for help and the courage to do so. Love you!

  19. I know what it is like to tour the U.S and the world.
    It is a great state of mine.

    Wow you were on some of the hottest and dryest roads of all times…

  26. Carol Gallaher says:

    HI Linda! Hello from Ohio! So proud of you! Cherish every second of your amazing journey! I bought a Sporty 883 two years ago but only started riding it three weeks ago & now can’t keep me off it!! Its all I think about day & night! LUV IT! A life-long dream come true! But I obviously don’t have to tell you the feeling of freedom riding gives you! Great pic and bike! Looking forward to following your progress! Keep your knees in the wind and be SAFE!! 🙂

  27. Dwayne Wilburn says:

  30. Peter Kemp says:

    Left a note on Facebook, great to see you on the road, enjoy the miles on the Harley 🙂

  31. jaime baker says:

    I can’t believe it took me so long to find out about your epic quest. You have, obviously, conquered your own demons and you are helping pave the way for others. Kudos to you for the courage and strength of character you are showing. I’m certain you are an inspiration to many people,in general,and a lot of women, in particular.

  32. ednolan says:

    Im glad your back safe however I nwver had any doubts youve grown so much I hope youve saved a little room But in reality this is just the beginning hope I can fly high enough to keep you in view LUVULOTS

  33. Your Assistant says:

    Proud of you Linda!!!! You rode for all of the women in the world to inspire them that they to can have a dream. Can’t wait to see what’s next!!!!

  34. Tammy Caple says:

    After reading the Harley news feed about your journey, I was inspired not to be fearful of riding. I purchased my first bike three weeks ago and was too scared to leave the neighborhood. Reading about your journey made realized I had nothing to fear. I have plenty of confidence in and around the Army for 17 years. Your trip inspired me to leave the neighbor and down the road I went this evening. What a feeling of freedom! Thank you for being an inspiration to others. Wishing you safe travels, God Bless!

  35. Thomas Ferranti says:

    “Together – we can each have a journey to change.” – sounds great – but I guess I’m feeling very down at the moment. I was told all my life that I was very creative and would probably end up fulfilling my dreams through my art and music, etc., and yet, here I am, unemployed, and dreading getting another J.O.B. (just over broke). At 46 is it too late to hope for that elusive word; “TOGETHER” as stated in your slogan? I think many took for granted many of the mentors that i never had. Sorry to not end on a positive note. Best to you.

    • Thomas,
      46 is still young enough to live life. I’m sorry that life is not working out the way you want. Sometimes, it’s hard to make the best of things when they are not what we want. Keep trying Thomas!!

  36. mike mahaney says:

    Linda; The Road is a great teacher and i know what a great student you are. May God bless you and your safety and we look forward to your return, love mike m

  37. The Crusader says:

    Yee Haw, Have a great trip, and remember what Ricky Bobbies father told him….”If you ain’t first your last” Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down, good luck.

  38. Michelle says:

    What a fantastic story! I can’t wait to read the book! I’ve been saying for years that some day I hope to own a Harley and ride cross country. I have been a single mother for 13 years focusing on parenting but when my daughter goes off to college, look out world, here I come!! Like so many others have said, you are an inspiration. A faith in God, a belief that you can do whatever you put your mind to and the strength and courage to make a plan and go for it! Like you, I anticipate riding with tears when I make my journey. Ride on and ride safe! Would love to hear other stories of inspiration. Maybe you could share more about your mentoring.

  39. Viki says:

    I am reading about your journey after you just finished, but I want to let you know it is moving. You are a beacon for others looking for the light. Thank You and I hope you realized how special you truely are!! Congratulations on your journey and I hope your next chapter is even more spectacular.

  40. Keeley Ward says:

    Ride Linda Ride! You are a brave woman and I am one who has battled demons too so I am right there beside you! You will inspire many and most of all, you will inspire yourself! I am looking forward to following your journey and seeing the pics and I know that this will be the best time of your life! Open your heart, your mind and embrace everything that comes along!

  41. Andrea Bilic says:

  42. Rod Love says:

    CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing journey! I wish I would have been in town to bring hugs and ride some in Beaver. There is NOTHING more empowering and just no feeling like riding your own bike on the open road. I hope you had an amazing journey and must admit I hope to do the same someday. I truly congratulate you on your journey and wish you a safe journey on all your next adventures! =)

    So glad to have read about you, your struggles, and your journey!

  60. Mark Hornstein says:

    Linda, you are doing something a lot of people would love to do, but they have fears too. Have a safe ride, enjoy the road, and go ahead and make it 10,000 mile just for the heck of it. As the say on sidestandup.com, live to ride another day. Mark

  65. Ashish Nadar says:

    I am from India and came across your journey through Harley-Davidson on Facebook(Doesnt mean i own 1). I am very much passionate about biking and have done some trips of 600 miles(here it is 1000 km). Cant believe you are travelling 7000 miles. After going through your journal, you have become my ONE AND ONLY BIKING Idol…..

    Hats off to your courage….Don’t know how else i can praise your efforts…..

  66. Limo Driver Jim says:

    Way to go Linda! Enjoy your trip and the people that you meet along the way! Ride Safe!

  67. So glad to have found your website and to have read your story! You are an inspiration to all women no matter if they ride or not! Would love to meet you one of these days to compare stories because your story is similar to mine and both of us are survivors! Are you going to write on book on your adventures and trial and tribulations? I think it would inspire more women like us! GOD speed Linda!

  68. Dusty Cassidy says:

    Great job what an inspiration. You are the woman. Please ride safe Linda.

  69. Melissa says:

    Wow…Good for you…you are truly an inspiration to women everywhere…and you already have me thinking if you can do it so can I….wish you the very best on your journey…love and blessing to u 🙂

  70. Graham English says:

    Hi,

    If you have a faith, stick with it. It is certainly not the deciding factor in summing up the courage to go on a long ride. I wish you all of the best in your endeavour; you’ll meet people that you might not meet in your usual social circle and this alone will broaden your mind. Ride free and take care…

  71. LES PIERCE says:

    HEY BEAUTIFUL, GLAD YOU MADE IT HOME ALRIGHT, WE HAVE BEEN SWAMPED WITH LAST MINUTE STURGIS PEOPLE, WE WILL TEAR INTO YOUR BIKE ON WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY AS SOON AS THINGS CALM DOWN, THAT WAY YOUR BIKE WILL GET THE QUALITY TIME IT DESERVES.

When I was young I was deathly afraid of the dark..My mom told me that if I could hear the frogs outside my window that meant all was ok because if there is danger they hide and you can’t hear them… So this guy was blatently telling you everything is sooooo good… Love to you…kd

  104. Katy Delbis says:

    Hello Linda, We have traveled… I use to live in a trailer in Georgia. Came back to Calif to go to school. Didn’t go to school. Started to get my life together slowly with God’s help and friends like you along the way. I got married and have two wonderful boys that also have challenges. I was working for a long time and have recently started a new journey trying to find a place for me. I have always just stumbled into jobs and never had the courage to see what I want and can do. About a year ago I started exploring acting and taking classes. I really enjoy it. I have felt like it is a calling.I usually just talk and don’t take action. I don’t want to be 107 years old and have regret to what might have been.. I have been inspired by your journey to change and In honor of your journey I will commit to printing out my headshots and I will have them in my possession before you return. God speed..and OH, the places we will go…Katy Delbis

  105. Terry Reilly says:

    Linda, All of us at IndyWest Harley-Davidson look forward to meeting you Monday and we did get an ok from WISHTV Channel 8 just minutes ago that you will be a guest on their IndyStyle TV show Tuesday at 8:30 am. Will send you more details by email. God bless, Terry

  106. Angela says:

    Dearest Linda,
    My heart and prayers go with you on this trip – may it be a marvelous journey of inspiration, exhileration and joy! I love you and will miss you dearly while you are gone – and I plan to keep tabs on you and leave you messages all over the place! Be safe and sane – you can do this and you will return a better person for it afterwards! God’s speed to you!

  107. Cristina Mistri says:

    Linda, You are an inspiration! Keep us post it on your journey. We will be with you! Be safe
