Genre: Transportation

The Bike, the Brush Up and the Beauty of the Journey is the story of a fun-loving, adventure-seeking motorcyclist who survives a near fatal accident, but sustains a traumatic brain injury and numerous physical injuries. It begins with what perhaps is an eerie prediction of what is to come when her bike fails to start and an ominous sign that she should have stayed in that weekend. Peppered with memories throughout her recovery, she relives thrilling moments on the road, albeit with an ornery riding partner she calls Cowboy. She tolerates their acrimonious relationship because of her deep passion for riding and their mutual sense of adventure. With her life in turmoil, she tries desperately to deal with the losses, including her life as she knew it, and struggles with being on the verge of fifty; unable to let go of the past, move forward, or start over.
