    Great ride today! Great friend we have on this Team. First, thanks to everyone for staying with me at the last stop as I had issues today with the heat and my new diabetes medicine & meter. I don't see how I could have been hydrated but I obviously was. my meter strips were apparently too hot and gave me bad readings. Again, this is a great group of friends and I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

      Glad to hear the problem was only faulty strips.

      Glad it was a 'tech' glitch.

    This is one of my favorite rides. It is always good seeing Team Red. Last year was much better when it came to support at the end. The fact of having to pay for an extra bottle of water at the end when it is extremely necessary to hydrate was absurd. Up to this year, this was my favorite race of the year.

      I completely agree with you John! I was extremely disappointed to be told I have to pay for water on a 99 degree day. I refused. They had plenty and should have done the right thing. We had a great time otherwise. Great to see you!

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.
