Although Faith got her first taste of freedom on a motorcycle in 1988, she admittedly didn’t become serious about riding until about 12 years ago. She credits her older brother for sharing his passion and getting her hooked on the lifestyle by taking her on long rides as a kid growing up. Fast-forward a few decades and Faith is now an avid rider and powersports industry veteran, currently helping dealerships across the country stock their showrooms as a Kuryakyn Dealer Direct Rep. Faith’s also a die-hard Victory Motorcycles rider and rides a Judge as her daily scoot, with a Kingpin serving as backup.
When asked why she accepted this challenge, Faith simply replied, “I look at this journey as a bucket list ride. It’s going to be an epic adventure and I really hope my journey encourages more women to get out, ride and make their own memories.”
To prepare for tackling the 15,000-plus-mile trek, Faith has been committed to a steady strength and endurance training regimen, eating healthy, and practicing sleep management.
