I LEFT MY COWBOY BOOTS IN A SHOE TREE ON THE LONLIEST HIGHWAY IN AMERICA!!!!

I remember like it was yesterday riding an Indian Roadmaster down U.S. Highway 50 through Nevada as the tail gunner for a pack of female motorcycle riders for the Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride.

I notice a shoe tree to my right while riding west on U.S. Highway 50 on our way to grab a delicious burger at Old Middlegate Station.  The station served as a Pony Express stop in 1860-1861.  The restaurant is a few miles up the road from the shoe tree.

I inform Gin Sheer, Robin Rimsky and a few other female motorcycle riders during lunch I’ve been riding cross country with an old pair of cowboy boots in my saddle bag that I’d like to toss on a the tree since Indian Motorcycles gave me a brand new pair of Redwing Boots to wear as a sponsored motorcycle rider.

We ride our motorcycles back to the shoe tree after lunch so I can toss my cowboy boots in the tree.

Cowboy boots don’t have shoe strings so Lisa Jackson gives me a zip tie to attach the boots together by the pull straps.

I toss my old raggedy Cowboy boots in the shoe tree on the first try!

Mission accomplished…now I ride home to California with a lighter load.

  1. You are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing! Stay safe and enjoy your adventure. Maybe our paths will cross soon. I have been depressed since moving from Colorado with my husband due to his promotion. I am going to ride to Lifton Ga for lunch in teo weeks! Thank you. I have the south to investigate. My goal is to ride cross country when I have more then 2 weeks vacation!

    1. Hello Deborah, I hope our paths cross so we can ride together in this beautiful country. Colorado is one of my favorite states to ride through because of the beautiful scenery. I’m confident you will find some great places to ride in Georgia including the surrounding states. There are so many great places to see in the south and on the East Coast and it can be done in less than 2 weeks…you may consider planning mini weekend ride vacations to prepare you for your cross country motorcycle ride!

      All the Best,

      SeCCRet the Cross Country Rider
