Lone Rider
By Elspeth Beard

In 1980, Elspeth rode her BMW R60/6 around the world. When she returned, she put all her journals, tapes, and photos into a cardboard box where they remained for over thirty years. Several years ago, a short article about her trip led to more interest about her trip, and she decided to publish a book about the trip.

If you are interested in getting your hands on one of the limited edition Long Riders Radio Shirts, here's the link!  The presale will run through May 6.  I will use the presale as my guide for how many extra shirts to order.  At this point, interest has been fairly low, so if you want to get a shirt, make sure you order it during the presale!
