    I'm scheduled to join a paddling class in WV on this weekend so I won't be attending this class. I'm also scheduled for SWR class in WV in August.

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.
