    Each week I'm helped to be less fearful of the task I face in public speaking. I look forward to the day I'll be more like you with confidence.

      You will be. With practise it comes. Remember none of us was born reciting Shakespeare - we all had to learn how to speak. :)

    If anyone who attended tonight is interested in joining, we currently have a waiting list for membership and are unlikely to admit any more new members until October.

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.
