    I'd like to attend with one other. And I will make payment by bank transfer. Meetup won't allow RSVP without payment by paypal though. Since this discussion is about ethics, worth noting that many people have raised ethical concerns about Paypal's practices.

      Paul, to avoid no show again, you can transfer HKD to HSBC account no. [masked] & let me know after payment. I will put you in RSVP list upon receiving payment.

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.
