    Wonderful!! This was our first meeting, having just arrived in Maine from AZ, and what a treat! Our stay in Maine will be for 3 months and to attend the meetings will be a highlight. It is very comfortable to be with people like we met on Sunday. Look forward to the next meeting.

    Ryan Cragun's talk talk was interesting and informative. Statistics normally are fairly boring, but were presented well and he kept everything interesting and flowing. He digressed, but it was in a good way that added to the talk rather than detracting. It was nice that he handled everything in a semi-formal/informal way and allowed questions in the middle of the talk rather than a Q&A at the end. Answered the questions well and I felt that he did an excellent job!
    Mr. Cragun presented the topics, let us choose, and his talk provided a preview of what his book had to offer. Its a method that made me want to read his work rather than strong-arming you in to buy the book if you want the whole story. Pity I have no room on my shelves or I would have gotten both books there. So glad that its available through Amazon for my Kindle.

    Great talk by Ryan. Many good questions and a full house to boot. If all our guest speakers generate this response we'll have to get a bigger venue.

      Thanks for all you did to make this happen, Doug. And yes, we need our own building so we can do this more often!

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.
