Travel author, adventurer and Bonneville rider Zoe Cano visited our Ashford branch earlier today to show us the latest updates to her custom Bonneville, a bike she has been gradually personalising. The sun was out and shining, which really helped demonstrate the quality of the stunning metallic paintwork (expertly applied by Ben at Vale Speed). When viewed close-up, you can see fine flecks of silver and purple in the metalflake finish. As well as the custom paint job, the bike has also been fitted with a British Customs cafe racer seat in brown leather, LED indicators all round, blacked out wheels (powder coated in satin black by Central Wheel Components), 1960s style barrel handgrips and wrapped exhaust headers. To complete the project, the bike has been named ‘Sweet Sensations’ and the name emblazoned on the side panels.
With Zoe’s love of motorbikes, she undertook a 10,000km ride across the American Continent solo in 2012, without assistance, back-up or sat-nav, on a classic Triumph Bonneville 860cc T100. She was determined to avoid the main roads and instead follow ‘the roads less travelled’. The full story of this ride is the subject of her first book, ‘Bonneville Go or Bust – On the Roads Less Travelled’ published by Road Dog Publications USA. The book has received rave reviews and 5 star ratings on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her second book, ‘Southern Escapades‘ was released in 2016 and tells the story of Zoe’s return to the US for another epic ride, this time zig-zagging along the tropical Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coast in Florida, through the forgotten back roads of the Florida Panhandle, Alabama and Georgia.
For more information about Zoe and to order signed copies of her books, take a look at her website www.zoecano.com. If you’d like to meet her in person, she will be book-signing at our TFEST season launch event at our Ashford branch on Saturday 22nd April 2017.
