    Group was going a little too fast for me so I just went off by myself. Loved the festival, bought some art, had some wine, listened to music but I was by myself. Would be best with one or two people of similar interests.

    From the stage area (our meeting point), we will head north and view the first half of the booths working towards Beltline, we will then cross over and view the rest heading south. Total viewing time is about 90 mins, so we will be done by 3pm.

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.
