First, I would like to introduce myself, my name is Crystal Long and I live in the beautiful area of Marietta, Ohio on the West Virginia border. I had never rode a motorcycle until the Spring of 2009 when I got tired of guys driving crazy with me on the back! One night I got off the back and said I have had enough, they asked does that mean you are never riding again? My answer was NO!!! I will get my own bike, and they all laughed. Well, in two days I bought a bike, in a week I had my permit, and within a month I had my license. Since then I have riden approximately 15k miles of some of the most beautiful roads in WV and Ohio. Wish I would have know of this site earlier to share those rides with you, but sure I will be in the future.

I am riding across the USA in hopes to raise money thru pledges for PFC Kyle Hockenberry who was wounded in Afghanistain. He has suffered the loss of both legs, one arm and many more injuries. The family is staying by his side in Texas to help him on this long journey to recovery. I am hoping to help them pay for this costly expense. This ride is scheduled to begin between July 23-25, depending on the weather.

As I make this trip, I plan to share my experience as I find access to computers. So check back soon for my updates. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Ride Safe my biker friends!!!
