    I guess I had better meet at the trail head too. I missed the last Fall Creek hike because there wasn't any parking at Fall Creek.

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.
