Just turned 14 a few days ago.
He’s IBA #40530, and is the youngest person to complete the NPT Master Traveler GOLD, that includes Maine, Florida, California, and ALASKA.
He’s crammed more moto-adventure in his young life than most do in the entire lives.
I began riding along with my husband in 2004. I was in my youthful 50s and ready to try something new, but had no idea it would become my defining passion! I have over 200K miles now and have enjoyed watching each one roll on by. I generally ride solo, but enjoy the opportunity to join one or two other skilled riders, my husband being number one on my list!
The BMR is my very first rally and I look forward to the possibility of meeting other riders along this journey and having lots of fun traveling to new places that I never even knew I wanted to see!
I’ve been enjoying Murrietas since before I was born. Best Mexican food anywhere.
I eat here often and my parents have known the owners for many years. José and his wife Mona have built a flourishing business now with two locations that always have a wait to get seated.
Here I am with Jose. He loves me and says I can come live with his family anytime I want.
Mona lets me seat customers and give them their menus …but only if I first eat a good dinner.
If you’re in Reno please give them a visit. Tell them Grace sent you. If your rider number is 066 or 068 please pick me up on your way and I’ll use my pull to get you seated immediately and share a great meal with you -yes I’ll even pick up the tab. That’s what friends do.
Want to know something fun? Jose was born in Mexico and Mona is only half Mexican -the other half: Polish!
They are the American dream. José loves his award winning Impala, boxing and his family. Mona loves to share laughter and I give her a lot to laugh about.
Jen Card is a fellow female rider who boldly left her job for 4 months to ride the USA. She covered 14,000 miles, mostly solo on a DR650, she picked up a few stray riders on the way. She’s almost ready to sign up and join me on this crazy points quest.
