    I wish I could go to this but my wife and I will be out of the area. I am a big fan of a carbon tax concept but except for the CCL (Citizens Climate Lobby), I see few people advocating that. Why not? It could be revenue neutral if done correctly. And we should have been voting on an increase in the gas tax to support highways rather than a sales tax. I heard nobody making that arguement.

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.
