The European Adventure 1992

Noemi Berry, DoD #443

The following is a writeup of a solo motorcycle trip I took in Europe in the summer of 1992.

The trip in itself isn't particularly remarkable -- lots of people ride motorcycles in the Alps -- except in the fact that I was a rank beginner and plunged in way way over my head. I really had no idea what I was doing, except that I loved it.

Please accept a disclaimer and apology for length. I always try my best to cut these down, but brevity is not one of my born talents. Apparently, neither is motorcycling, but passion breeds ignorant bravado, and I had plenty of that, uncured by inexperience.

Many thanks to Jeff Deeney for providing the amusing intros.
