    Once you get off the train, walk toward the front entrance, the bus stop is right across from the station. I have a khaki visor and red backpack.

    Hi everyone! As some of the members suggested, you can take the train directly to Ruifang. Feel free to buddy up to Ruifang, but the starting point and actual meeting place will be at the bus stop @ Ruifang train station. Also the forecast suggested that it might rain on Th. Are you game to keep it if it does rain?

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.
