    I really would like to see a terrapin lay her eggs. I'd also like to observe the eggs hatching. I've never seen a baby terrapin.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
