    I've never been to this before- is there a charge for the concert, general admission, or is it all free? All I see mentioned on the website is carnival tickets and donations welcome. thanks

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.
