    I would like to see UTC host one of these larger parties/dances some place but the way south part of town. Not everyone in our group lives South- it would help balance out the travel for all members.

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.
