Voni & Paul Glaves - Million Miles on Her Motorcycle & the Mechanic Behind the Scenes
Voni Glaves is one of two women who have ridden over a million miles on a BMW motorcycle. Back in the 1970's, Voni had no idea that women could ride motorcycles, but with encouragement from her husband Paul, she learned to ride just so they could take their kids on motorcycle camping trips. And since then there has been no stopping her. She's ridden through the United States, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and New Zealand. To date, she has put on almost 1.1 million miles and is riding towards her goal of 2 million miles. And someone important to Voni is her husband and mechanic Paul, who did all the repairs needed while Voni put 1,000,000 miles on her bikes.
