Common Tread

Before her rapid ascent into adventure riding, Kyra had spent nearly a decade as an entertainment rigger and rope access technician. Although she's been riding motorcycles for a number of years, her passion for off-road riding and motorcycle touring is newly acquired, and with the help of her boyfriend (and partner in crime) Justin, she fell head over heels. Trading in her ropes and fall protection for steel on two wheels, Kyra left her career to chronicle her successes and (many) failures on and off the road. Henceforth, she has been lucky enough to contribute her opinions and experiences testing gear, gadgets, skills and — most of all — her limits. Now an author and avid rider, Kyra spent months with Justin ridin’ tough on their matching Yamaha XT225 dual-sports, affectionately named Darth and D2, from the Pacific Northwest to the Baja Peninsula. With plans to take over the world — or at least see it — Kyra has no intention of applying the brakes and full intention of documenting everything that happens from start to finish.
