      idk how much flooding would affect this route, and it looks like the rain might let up by 7:30 so I would be tempted to drive down, but the red cells expected to form around 10:30 when we're halfway to nowhere worry me

      if it's raining hard here (medical center) when I wake up, I'll check the radar, but unless the radar looks like tornadoes are headed our way, I plan to drive down to A&M before I even consider calling it off

    Thought my rear wheel was bent, turns out it's broken at where one of the spokes meets the rim. I'll pick it up today, $300 poorer, but at least with two new, lighter wheels.

    where at A&M should we park exactly? will we get ticketed for parking at A&M?

    May 19, 2013

    • Jose G. P.

      I dont think so. Dave parked there 2 weeks back, inckuding his son in law. Also can park on entrance road close to the main buildings. Plenty parking. I will ride to the location tomorrow aftrt work to verify.

      May 19, 2013

    • Jose G. P.

      Its a nice place, also security is always there since there is construction going on.

      May 19, 2013

  • Jose G. P.

    It will be a great ride. Plenty areas for rest if need be.

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.
