    I would love to do this but I have 2 dogs at home with no one to watch them if I go overnight. I usually take them camping with me.

    March 11

    • Lora A.

      We have 5 dogs & 4 cats Dana (& chickens...lol). May not be a good idea to bring them because my dogs will go nuts. However, you are welcome to come for dinner & the presentation and stay as late as you like then return in AM to set up the balloon with us. Whatever works for you.

    • Dana

      My dogs would go nuts too. They are not fond of cats and would try to eat the chickens. I will have to board them for the night if I am able to come.

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.
