    Michael, thanks for again pulling together another awesome ride! Your knowledge of the trails plus tips offered in navigating the terrain are one of the big benefits for us more beginner types. That, coupled with breaks to refresh occasionally, are one way to keep us coming back. Also, thanks to all the riders whose friendliness make this event such fun!

    Do you all still start out with a counter clockwise outer loop ride? I'm probably going to be late and will try to catch up or go the opposite way and run into you.

    I am not going to be able to make this weeks ride. My dad is at wake med with a brain tumor. He is having surgery tomorrow. Hopefully I can make it to the next ride.

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.
