    I'm schizophrenic, so I guess I have two strikes against me. I am not dangerous, my last hospitalization was 2002. I also think Albert Einstein was a step backwards. If there were more than 3 dimensions, WHERE WOULD THEY BE? My best friend was a strong Christian, so no intolerance. Never married, never met a woman with my interests.

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.
