    I'm arranging a group to go hear our awesome tour guide from this past weekend give his tour at Air and Space where he is a docent. Thinking Sunday May 5th at 1 pm is his tour. Message me if interested.

    It was a great event with great weather and thanks to the tour guide and the organizer. It was more than a pleasure seeing and meeting everyone of you even if i do not immediately remember your name or recognize your photograph please feel free to send me an email so that we may keep in touch. There is lots to see and explore in the Washington, DC area. If anyone wants to meet up during the week after work just let me know. I work in IT Support with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. Cheers!

    Looks like the weather and everything else is shaping up for a great outing! Was down there last Sun. and it was about 15% in bloom, but with the weather this week we should be in for a rare treat...something I've probably seen 3-4 times in 20+ yrs of going.

    Was talking with some friends tonight and encouraging them to participate, and their reactions kinda made me aware of something else I hope you'll consider. On mentioning there were some 275 people signed up, the reactions went along the lines of "WOW.....WOW...there's actually someone willing to try to organize that under those circumstances?!?" Opened my eyes, so hopefully we'll all make it fun for them too! Lookin' forward to it!

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.
