Here in the U.S., I’ve ridden down through the Pacific Northwest and through the Four Corners and was impressed by the comradery shown by other bikes on the road. My last solo trip was 3,000 miles with my Triumph through the Four Corners and 6 states — California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. While I chose to do it alone, I can honestly say I never once felt lonely. Moto culture is incredibly strong in many parts of the U.S., and I always felt supported by the other riders I met while travelling. In Utah, I felt there was a particular respect for motorcycles and a strong sense of American pride which I appreciated. It was also exhilarating being able to ride without a helmet (hey, you only live once!). But throughout my trek, I found that lots of other riders who followed my travels through my Instagram began to reach out to me, even offering me a place to stay or guidance while I was in their state. I felt overwhelmed by the kindness and offers of help I got from fellow riders.
