We all like to try our hand at something new and see where it takes us. When Rod Monette first slung his leg over a motorcycle at the age of 47, he could not have imagined it would lead to a journey of the heart as well as the body.
He did not set out to review and reconsider life on solo road trips around North America, but that is where those 2 wheels took him.
Stripping it down to the basics, this story is fresh and honest because that is the only promise of each day on the open road. No time for lazy retrospection - not on this journey. Up before dawn, check all the gear, eat light, stay wide awake and feel what nature and your soul serves up. And it served up. The opportunity to experience endurance, awe, love, disappointment and oh ya .....the bike and the open road.
