Written before the trip


RIDER

I am a 31 years old French lady. I grew up in the French country village, Le Val d’Ajol.

At an early age I had the taste of adventure while hiking, biking, driving and wild camping with family and friends across the French mountains and Europe.

At the age of 20, I left my village to become a land surveyor and cartographer. My study and work brought me travel around the world.

My interests have always centered on geography, sport (triathlon), traveling and laughing!

I have been recently living in the great city of San Francisco where my life had taken another turn in organizing a fun challenge: riding my motorcycle along the edge of the three American continents!

MOTORCYCLE

Francesca was born into the German BMW dynasty in 2001. I fell in love with this shapely F650GS when she was barely 20,000 miles old. Two years, 20,000 miles and a few spills later, Francesca and I have become a very strong and fun team!

Francesca is her official name; I baptized her that way because her and I met in San Francisco. But as Francesca is a bit too serious, I actually call her Bilou, I find it cuter :)

MASCOT

Annish, the cute little gnome... His story is very long to tell but he is important in the adventure as he represents to me two important persons of my life: my mom Annie and my very good friend Anita.
