Scattered Light with Lavon Hardison and Susan Pascal @ the Royal


"Living in the PNW I've now grown to hold dear, and even say nearly worship our precious sun. On these misty, rainy grey winter days when a patch of sky opens up and the light, scattering, produces a patch of blue, or Rainier emerges at sunset, bathed in orange light. I am lifted, and a sense of hope warms the spirit."

John Croarkin

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.
