As a chocolatier, I know my biggest customer base is female, by far. When I learned women are the fastest-growing demographic of new riders, I knew WGT and the Buffalo Chip offered perfect opportunities to support female riders and to be immersed in my passion for motorcycles. While at Sturgis, I gave away and traded chocolate to as many people as I could. I traded for everything from motorcycle rides, pizza, a haircut, a steel axe, and even free passes for a group of twenty-something people and myself to zipline over the Chip while Lynyrd Skynyrd played “Tuesday’s Gone.” It was there that all my ideas, passions, and courage collided in an epic and serendipitous adventure resulting in a new life direction. I met virtually everyone in the industry who could help merge my passions for motorcycling and chocolate into some wonderful amalgam of the two. It was official. I had found my passion and deeper purpose, my family of gypsies, and during the next several weeks I rode the gorgeous moto-wave of my dreams.
