Vasilisa Komarova had a dream like many of us in the adventure motorcycling community- to ride her bike, with all she needed to survive, up the coast of South America- through Central America and end up in Alaska. This is a famous route traveled by many road warriors every year. She was planning to be in Alaska this spring, but do to a horrible experience in Bolivia her dream was shattered. Vasilisa was physically and sexually attacked and assaulted -the details of her trauma are to disturbing for me to repeat here-but I encourage those interested to read the (above) attached news article about her tragedy (in spanish-use google translate). She ended up having to stay in Bolivia for many months to ensure a trial and conviction of her assualters. This has put an enormous financial burden on her.  From the brief interaction I have had with Vasilisa she seems like a very kind and endearing person- which is clearly evident by the many new friends who have come to her aid in Bolivia. I am hoping our motorcycle community can gather around her as well and help get her back on the road soon and fulfill her dream, while making great friends and getting support along the way.....    

If you wish to joint the support group let me know- I will add you to the go fund me account. 

Good Luck Vasilisa!!!

Dear All this in support of vasilisa. This is my first time using go Fund Me. I was advised by their site to post an update expelling how the funds will get to her. Do to the fact she is currently in Bolivia and does not have a permanent address that is recognized by Go Fund Me- I had to start the fund myself FOR HER. I am a friend who read her story and was moved to take action to get her back on the road following her horrible incident. The funds are being sent to me Via Check- I did this vs a direct deposit , to have a paper trail and photograph each check and bank transfer deposit information. Each time a check is sent to me- I take a photograph of it-and send it to Vasilisa. Then I have my bank to a international money transfer to Valsilisa's UK bank account. The check and money transfer amounts are the same minus only a bank fee- which is recorded on the transfer document.
Vasilisa will be using the funds to get her Motorcycles repaired, pay fees for licensing and travel documents, as well as her day to day travel, food, and lodging expenses as she travels north towards Alaska.

As of today only one check has been deposited and transferred to Vasilisa. We are awaiting the second one any day. Go Fund Me sends them out every few weeks ( I think).

Thank You all for you help and support- she is very grateful ...!

Hi Everyone, I am logged in through Brent's account - due to a tech. glitch I can't log in and say thank you as myself.
This weekend is my last one in the jungle town where I lived for a year, I am taking my motorbike for repairs to La Paz. From there I will be crossing to Peru and heading North, chasing the dreamy horizon up to Alaska. It feels so unreal soon to be be on the road. I am so happy. You making it possible. I did not expect all this and God only knows how grateful I am :) Thank you so so much XXXXXX

Dear all,

Just a brief update on our effort to get Vasilisa back on her adventure north. So many parole have contributed to the fund- we are now at just over 1600$!! This will go a long way at getting Vasilisas bike back in order for the road and help with her travel. A very special thanks needs to go out to Tom Palmer from Motorrand Angles for the great effort he is putting into connecting Vasilisa with help and the right people in Bolivia. Thanks to the other members of Motorrad Angles for their help! Vasilisa has been busy getting things ready but still had time to do yet another local TV interview discussing empowering Bolivian women who are victims of sexual assault. She is an amazing woman and deserves our help and support!!
