    Wow! Very interesting & inspiring and I want to read her book! I think it was very sad that when she returned home there was no fanfare for her & her story. I can only imagine how depressed she was. I only wish I could have been so adventurous as she.

    Something tells me this lady does'nt get depressed. She's to busy pressing on to the next adventure in her life. Looks like riding motorcycles is a life long part of her life.

    I finished her book, "Elsbeth Beard Lone Rider. " A must read in my own opinion. A brutally honest story of the indomitable human spirit, failure, then unheralded triumph. After having read the book a month ago,I want to read it again. Cheers from Vancouver Island

    Great video, I read her book awhile ago and the stories of a few other women doing crazy big rides. Fun to follow along.

    A little add on to this thread

    Would be cool if Elspeth could kick off a book tour in Des Moines at the National Rally.

    I agree, I read the book last weekend.

    It was engrossing, I couldn't put it down and read it in two sessions. What a fantastic story.....Rod.

    I went to her book signing event last night and it was an honor and a pleasure to meet and speak with her! She's down to earth and a true inspiration for anyone interested in motorcycle adventures. I highly recommend her book!

    Elspeth!

    My wife and I have read this, both enjoying it thoroughly. Elspeth's story is difficult, joyous, and sad yet she remained resilient. Wonderful to have published it.
