    I am so sorry I missed this but I too woke up with a touch of cold and a scratchy throat. :(

    If someone needs a ride from Santa Monica, we plan to leave around 7:30am. We have two extra seats in the car.

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.
