Briter2Morrow.com was launched in June of 2011 with a simple goal.
“I want to make the world a better place for motorcyclists (and all people) through education, training, testimony, and motorcycling! I have been carving this path for several years, and a rocky one it has been! I got back on (my own bike this time) and decided to use my experiences as a tool to teach others. I’ve done many things, seen many places, and met many people who want the same things I want for the world. I hope that documenting my efforts through this blog will inspire others to travel off the beaten path as well.” -Brittany Morrow
