Ladies’ Lunch Ride plus chocolate theraphy

Last Friday, a new riding friend invited me to go with her and her lady-friends for a lunch ride. I hadn’t been out on the Harley for a while and it looked like this might be the last warm day of the season.

So I was of course in.


And if you throw in riding over Monitor Pass in fall colors, I’m definitely in!

I think it’s the first time I’ve been on an “ladies only” ride ever! Kind of nice to ride without big egos and a male need for making everything into a race.

The purpose of the ride was to see some fall colors, get lunch and then we made a stop at the Chocolate Shoppe in Gardnerville, Nevada. Check, check and check — The colors were off the hook! Lunch with a fantastic view at Topaz Lodge and then a little therapeutic chocolate shopping to top it off. Yum!


Thanks for inviting me, ladies! First time I’ve ever seen a Spyder up close and they’re not that scary. Not even the yellow one!
