This was taken a couple of weekends ago at the Dakota Dual-Sport Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota. My shot of a KTM rider blasting through one of the many stream crossings we saw that day.

All part of the adventure. No matter what bike you're on.

Photo of 24-year-old Elspeth Beard in London after completing her solo ride around the world on her used 1974 R 60/6 BMW in 1984 via Motorcyclist Online, found via Mary Caple.



Her first bike was a Yamaha 100 and she soon graduated to a Honda 250. She found that useful for nipping around London but, after a while, felt the urge for something more macho. "I worked for months in a pub saving the money to buy my BMW 600," she says. "That gave me the bug for travel on a bike. It's the best way to get around - cheap, efficient and I enjoy the freedom."

When she finished her training to become an architect, Elspeth wanted a taste of adventure before settling down, and decided to ride round the world. She shipped the BMW to New York where she picked it up and rode to Canada, then to Los Angeles, before putting the bike on a ship for Sydney.

Once reunited with her BMW, she rode across Australia to Perth, where the bike was placed on a boat again, this time to Singapore. From there she rode north through Malaysia and Thailand. "Burma was closed to me," she says, "so I rode back to Penang and put the bike on a ship to Madras."

The next stop was Calcutta and her route continued to Katmandu, Nepal and thence to Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece and back home through mainland Europe. The trip, covering 48,000 miles, lasted nearly three years - and wasn't without incident. —Kenric Hickson in an excerpt from Typical biker: Elspeth Beard.

"I somersaulted the bike in Australia," she says, "and spent two weeks in hospital. Later it caught fire. The wiring loom had burned out but I had the most amazing luck. Only a few hundred yards away was the first building I had seen all day and there was this sign saying 'electrician'. I was saved."
Elspeth has taken her 10-year-old son, Tom, on short trips to Europe. "Long journeys are out until he is older," she says. "Then we aim to go to Alaska, down the west coast of America, into Mexico, on to South America and Chile and through Argentina, Patagonia and, finally, to Tierra del Fuego."
