    Hey everyone, we added 5 more spots so some people on the waiting list could come. If that was you and you won't be able to make it please change your RSVP. The reason we have a limit is because Biocurious can only hold so many people due to the fire code. Thanks again and sorry for all the notifications.

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.
