Each Glove Tells A Story: Long Distance Motorcycle Riding ~Voni Glaves

Posted by Rhonda Hurwitz

Voni Graves' Red Gloves

Last week, as the conversation on Facebook page turned to waterproof gloves, we were excited to see a familiar name --  accomplished long distance rider Voni Glaves.

Voni is one of a handful of motorcyclists who has ridden a documented million miles without an accident, and is working on her second million. A million miles is like circling the circumference of the earth 40 times.

Voni agreed to chat with us and share some of her experiences in the saddle.  We were really curious about her experiences both as a long distance motorcycle rider, and a something of a trailblazer for women in the sport.  

And since there's always a history behind a person's pair of motorcycle gloves, we got to hear some pretty cool stories ... and learn a thing or two.

Voni, thanks for sharing your stories, and continue to ride safe!
