    Many thanks to Sean and Osprey Bay Outdoors for hosting this great evening. Sean you are the greatest. I had a fun evening and learned a lot. This was a valuable lesson. For all of you out on the water---Don't leave your safety in someone else's hands--be informed--be the best you can be. We can all learn from this seasoned survivalist, whether a beginner or advanced.

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.
