Riding Solo with SPOT




Two years ago Laura Jones bought her first motorcycle, a Suzuki GS500, on Mother's Day. She says "on a whim" last May she decided to venture out on her first month-long solo motorcycle adventure starting with a 4-day journey that would take her from Calgary, Alberta to meet friends in Buena Vista, Colorado. For safety, and given that most of the trip was along routes that were remote where she wouldn't have access to cell phone networks, her Dad loaned her a SPOT GPS Satellite Messenger which he used frequently on their sailing & flying trips. Laura says that SPOT would also help "to keep my mom's blood pressure down from worry". In Laura's words, her mom wasn't exactly "stoked" about the solo trip, but with SPOT at least she'd have peace of mind knowing that Laura would be able to stay in touch, sending regular check-in/OK messages.
