This is the classic shot of Elspeth Beard after making her own panniers from aluminium sheeting to continue her travels on. Although i have not met Elspeth yet I have met many robust and colourful female travellers in some unlikely places and it has never failed to put a smile on my face because when you listen to their tales of adventure you know that what comes out of their mouths isn't likely to have had the ‘slight exaggeration factor' added that men are allowed to use…!!! And also let’s be fare about this, in some parts of the world it’s tough going for a man let alone a solo lady traveller on a motorcycle..!!
So, whether you’re a pillion to your ‘significant other’ or one of the many female solo riders currently (or post travel) on your trip and you stumble across this blog then please do share some of your memoirs and/or travel tips along with any ‘horror stories’ that might be informative to any pending female adventure travellers also reading here..!! It would be great to hear from other travellers that have and show respect to 'Ladies on the hoof'...!!
