    It was not really Brazilian! Just guaraná and pastel were things originally brazilian. Other kids of food were not even close to what we really have in Brazil. The music was good though.

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.
