I ride alone all over North America. Part of the 'freedom" I get from riding is not having to compromise at all so, riding with anyone else cuts into that for me. There are many areas in the mountains and in the SW US where there is no cell service at all.

I came across this GPS transmitter at a boat show a few years ago. It works great for both, letting Lynne know where I am when I'm traveling and, it has a couple of options for getting help via satellite also. the site if you're interested in one for yourself. It's very reasonably priced.

The map below shows where I am if I'm on a bike trip, or sometimes, when Lynne and I are on a road trip in the car. It updates every 10 minutes
