Rules

First Rule: You must bring your own bike (We are not ending out trip at the starting point, so you wont be able to rent and return your bike)

Second Rule: Helmet is a must, unless your skull is harder than tarmac.

Third Rule: Come on time with a full belly, we will catch the 0830 ferry.  The next ferry which allows bike will be at 1030 hours, so if you missed the ferry, you missed the ride.

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.
