Riding Across America – Polish Female Treks USA Aboard Bonneville

Riding Across America

The Polish-female rider Wronika Kwapisz recently finished an 80-day trip that took her 12,000 miles across the USA, the journey simply titled “Riding Across America.”

Kwapisz is no stranger to solo-motorcycle travel. Overseas, she is known for her daring solo-expedition across Europe performed on a 125cc motorcycle. But her motorcycle of choice for her American travels was a Triumph Bonneville.

“This is the essence of style, timeless motorcycle that has a soul. I didn’t want to beat any record, I wanted to soak up the world which becomes more clear at lower speeds,” Kwapisz says.

“I also liked minimalism, because nowadays too many gadgets distract our attention from what’s really important. Besides, you can’t buy adventure, you can only experience it.”

Kwapisz – author of the e-book “Everything starts from a dream” – inherited her love of motorcycles from her 94-year-old grandmother, who runs a motorcycle shop in Poland.

This love sparked her courageous solo journey through Europe in 2011. This petite and modest young woman crossed alone 7,456 miles on a small 125cc motorcycle, arousing great interest in the media.

But she wanted more, and set her sights on the endless prairies of North America. For more than two months she struggled with many difficult routes, changeable weather, and unpredictable events.

Speaking of the trek, she says “I wanted to discover North America from the inside out, ride many fairytale routes called ‘Scenic Byways’, visit National Parks, and get to know people and their stories. I wanted to see if the Wild West with endless prairies still exist,” said Kwapisz before starting her great American adventure.

This trip was originally scheduled for 9,940 miles, but turned out to be a bit more. Last week, Kwapisz reached the end of her trip in New York City, the Bonny’s odometer reading 12,262 miles.

Talking at the end of her trip, Kwapisz says “North America is a beautiful continent with great roads. I have met incredible and friendly people.”
