    I loved this event - thanks to Todd Donahue for including me. I plan to go back to the CJM to see the exhibit again. There is an entire room devoted to Saul Bass Title Design, and so much more. The tour was inspiring - and added so much more life to the experience. Thank you!

    Maybe one evening we can all watch: "Helvetica" the movie. Am I the only one who hasn't seen 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.
