Last September – through my Blog – you followed her along the 3325 miles of the Cannonball Endurance Run riding her beloved 1915 Harley-Davidson named Effie from Kitty Hawk, NC to the Pier of Santa Monica, CA. She is the only American woman to have completed such a run. She also authored the best seller book, “American Motorcycle Girls 1900 To 1950” an Amazon best seller in its category. Because of her accomplishments, she is an inductee in the National Motorcycle Hall Of Fame, in the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation and in the Sturgis Hall Of fame.
Yesterday she was in Eustis, Florida at the AMCA Vintage Days. Today she arrived in Daytona. During Bike Week, Cris will be sharing her presence between the Harley-Davidson Women’s Area on Beach Street and the Progressive International Motorcycle Show at the Ocean Center on North Atlantic Avenue. A great opportunity for you to meet with her, talk about women motorcyclists, get her autograph on her books (only at IMS Show), exchange road stories from the Cannonball Run and of course get a close look at Effie, her 1915 3-speed 11J Twin Harley-Davidson. Days and hours after the jump.
