    Women Who Ride Seminar

    This year, a one for FIRSTS, we celebrated with SEVEN of the most amazing women leading our panel. Can't thank them enough for taking time from their rally to share with us! If you missed it, this is some of what you missed. Not to mention the firsts we all shared and celebrated and in doing so made connections.

    Leading off, Benka Pulko who has two Guiness Book Records as well as an amazing slide show of pictures of her travels which she shared in two seminars.

    Next up, Valerie Thompson, who piloted an S1000RR to a record 209.5 MPH! She met and graciously posed for pictures in the EPM booth for hours on end and visited lots of smaller gatherings.

    Then Tiffany Coates, currently the world's foremost female bike adventurer. If you missed her seminars, you really missed a firecracker!

    Dawn Douglas, who had to rent a CAR came because she'd promised even though bike problems slowed her way down. Watch for her documentary travel show which is still being born.

    Followed by Becky Baker, first woman to win her class in AHRMA. Her seminar was great for anyone who has ever dreamed of racing.

    Voni, I'm sorry I missed this! (But I missed all the seminars I had flagged - including our own!) Busy busy busy in the GS Giant area.

    But on the plus side, it was great to finally meet you! Even if only while blocking traffic!

    Hugs are traffic stopping!

    We'll continue to get to know each other better here.

    Still sMiling.

    ]Thanks for your kind words. It's my favorite part of the rally!
