    Excellent, I've been checking all day to see if it's going ahead or not! I've already paid, and I've just paid for Lynne Marland, over Internet banking. Cheers, Elaine

    I see we are a few people off from having a full class. Do I pay anyway or wait for the class to be full?

      Hi Rebecca RSVP to confirm your interest but do not pay yet. You will be asked to pay in a few days when we have a clearer idea on whether the minimum number of RSVP will be reached.

    I used to have beautiful writing but biros - going too fast etc has meant I have lost the art so ... the idea of slowing down appeals ....

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.
