Our annual Ducati West Coast Meet was in Topaz Lake. We booked the Topaz Lodge and had a great group of guys (I am always the only girl). The last few years, we have taken our motorhome, but this year we decided to ride. I am really glad we did, like old times. We made it to Topaz pretty late that evening. When we arrived, there were about 4 others that had arrived early. We hung out with them for a bit until it was time to turn in. The next day, we decided it would be fun to take Sonora Pass over to Sonora to have some lunch at Diamondback Grill. This was a great ride with some amazing roads. There was a total of 5 of us (Scott, Jess, Victor, Bill and John). We came back the same route because it was very warm.
That evening, John (RedPato) and his son cooked up some delicious burgers for us at the hotel. We sat around and chatted with all the guys until it was time to turn in for the evening. We would be up early to meet for breakfast and decide on another ride route. Today we decided that we would ride to have a little lunch in Lake Tahoe. We would take Monitor Pass, through Kirkwood and down to Tahoe. We had a great lunch at the Riva Grill with everyone (total of about 10 guys). Then we would head back over Monitor back to the hotel. The ride back was some of the best riding I have ever had on my RR. I was in such a groove that I left all the boys in the dust. Sorry boys!
