    Lee, do you know a date for the follow up field trip?

    Yes. My husband, Vic, will also attend. I have a non-member friend who wanted to take the class but I need to check with her since the date has changed.

    Ginger, I had the date wrong, the room is reserved for March 1st and NOT the 8th. Can you still attend on the 1st?

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.
