One woman, one motorcycle and 33,000 miles through South and North America
Kick-start your ideas ΤΗτ The Top 10 List of how not to do it

This is a one-time opportunity for you to meet this amazing woman and hear how she followed her Dream. Annette has fit Country Rode into her busy schedule on her way to the West Coast and several speaking engagements. Not only is there a very nice article about Annette in April's Motorcycle Consumer News but she comes with high recommendation from BMW Motorrad USA. One woman, one motorcycle and 33,000 miles through South and North America. Kick-start your ideas -- The Top 10 List of how not to do it.
Annette Birkmann is possibly the first attorney in the world to have replaced the pen with a spanner in a motorcycle repair shop in Buenos Aires. And one of the few women in the world to have ridden solo from the southern tip of South America, through Central America, Mexico and across the United States; a journey amounting to 33,000 miles through 16 countries, a wider behind and several derailments.

Based on her lone journey from Buenos Aires to New York Annette has a very affecting and entertaining take on how to kick-start your ideas based on an unshakable belief in passion and commitment as the forces which transform ideas into reality. Equipped with two licences, one to practise law, the other to ride a motorcycle, and 10 words of Spanish, Annette went to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to learn how to repair motorcycles and to make a dream come true: to ride alone through South America on a motorcycle.

After 8 months in Buenos Aires learning motorcycle mechanics and Spanish, Annette rode south to the southernmost town in the world, Ushuaia. From the southern tip of South America she rode north through Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and across the States, arriving in New York City after 15 months on the road. In her presentation Annette takes the audience on a visual journey through the Americas and speaks honestly and with enthusiasm about taking the first step, facing adversity, finding passion and experiencing freedom.
