My friend said, "you rock, girl" and I seriously believe I earned that title. I spent 10 days on the road, riding with my hubby on his Road Glide Harley. It was an amazing trip. We road for 2,550 miles and saw some of the most beautiful coastlines in America.
Day One: Left Salt Lake City in the sunshine – yep, that’s Brett & my shadows on the bike headed west. Met Alan and Maxine in Wendover for breakfast.
On to Wells, NV where we me Robin and Mitch –Robin rides her own bike (now she really rocks!)
Next stop Elko, NV where we met two more couples, Brett’s sister and brother-in-law, Peggy and Paul. As you can imagine, we ate a lot and laughed a lot.
And, the next day didn’t start out too good either. Brett asked if he needed to put me on a plane for home. Hmm. Too bad the Corvette didn’t have room for a third person. Brett promised the weather would get better. Okay, I’ll keep going!!!
I see blue skies!!!!!
Day Three: Ride into San Francisco was a better day, even though I wore three pairs of pants and two coats to get there. My legs were covered with jeans, leathers, and rain gear, while I wore a sweather, sweatshirt with hoody, leather jacket, and a raincoat – it’s a wonder I could even move!!! The ride over Donners Pass was COLD and at least in the 30s, but we didn’t run into rain or snow (they had actually had snow two days before requiring chains.
San Francisco was beautiful, sunny and around 60 degrees. We had wonderful food on Fisherman’s Wharf and visited Ghirardelli Square.
Day Four thru Eight: Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and rode Highway 1 going north along the coast's beautiful scenery. Stopped along the way in many little towns, Eureka, Cresent City, Coos Bay, Newport:
