Last spring Kari Prager, co-owner of the BMW/Triumph dealership in Mountain View, CA sent me an email saying a rider traveling from the southern tip of South America to New York would be stopping at his shop and did I want to meet her? I would and I did. Her name is Annette Birkmann and she may be the only person to ever abandon a legal career in Denmark to become a motorcycle mechanic in Argentina. She is likely to be one of the few women to ride solo though from the South American continent.
I wrote about her adventures for Motorcycle Consumer News. A copy of the article is here. You may find her “Top Ten Mistakes: Either in life or motorcycle adventures,” very interesting. Let me know what you think.
