    Really sorry but I have a humdinger of a head cold (again) and can't make this evening. I have to say I'm really disappointed and I'm sorry to let you down Lisa. Really want to come but I know I'd be stupid to do so and I'd just be a vegetable in the corner doing nothing. I feel like death on a stick. I just hope peeps that came last night dont catch it from me. :(

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.
