Check the reviews, we offer a safe fun learning and enjoying environment !!  Everything you need is provided !!

    Just wondered if flotation devices are ever used, and if so, are any provided?

    Thanks. Looking forward to this.

      we provide them per coast guard regulation , they must be on the boards OR on the person. it is your choice to wear it or not, most don't. Per our safety rules, we keep our groups tight to the shoreline inside the no wake zone for security and safety as we make our way from lake to lake. cutting across the middle of the lake is like playing in traffic. so the depth around the shore is probably about 8 ft.

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.
