  • He wanted a little bike to tinker with . . .
  • She had well-groomed hair and wore high heels!

Not just for bikers but for travellers and dreamers alike. Award-winning Just Us Two-Ned and Rosie’s Gold Wing Discovery is an exhilarating romp through ten happy Gold Wing years of discovery and adventure and fun as a quiet middle-aged couple, who had never crossed the water to tour before, journey into the unknown into far flung corners of Western Europe with only each other to rely on.

It is also a tale of courage and triumph over adversity as, following illness when it appeared that the freedom of biking days was over, they made mental and practical adaptations in order to continue what they could while they could and then they would not say ‘if only …’

The adventures start when Ned wanted something to tinker with after a number of years bike-less. Rosie pleaded: “If we buy a scooter will you travel? Will you brave the ferry? Will you? Can we? … and initially bought a Honda 1100cc.motorbike.They planned to visit Ireland to find Rosie’s roots on what was a profound emotional tale of discovery. However, fate took a hand and Rosie discovered a Honda Gold Wing 1500cc motorbike sitting in a showroom waiting for them. Ned thought he had died and gone to heaven and they sailed off to Ireland two weeks later on what was to become known as Ned’s ‘baby.

Rosie pokes fun at herself as they go

  • coast to coast in France and Spain;
  • cross the French and Swiss Alps;
  • follow the Champagne Route;
  • ride through the sun scorched earth of the Sierras and torrential thunderstorms in the Andorran mountains, praying for safety as they ride into the unknown;
  • ride in the intense heat into the Dolomites.

Follow the spills and thrills as they Wing it their way, on their own-Just Us Two. And why can’t Rosie afford any more shoes?
