    Tori you have a SS now? What gear are you running? I might have an easier cog for climbing that came stock on my SS. My new cogs are comin in the mail soon so I wont really need it.

      32 in front 20 back. This is a pretty good gear for me. I just mean having to stop and walk at times might hold up the group since I'm just starting out. Freaking love SS. If anyone talks smack about it, it's because they've never tried it. I think I might just pay for disc brakes this year and get a new geared bike next year... Enjoy this one for awhile :)

    I'm kinda sorta slow on the climbs with the SS. Ya'll feel free to ride at a faster pace. I just need this for motivation to get out and ride. Hopefully the trail will be somewhat dry.

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.
