    I will most likely join you guys. I'll txt Solemon Grundy and let him know for sure. I am riding back from Auburn tomorrow so as long as it all goes smooth i'm in.

    Gas wise i think i can get 80...100 is probably pushing it. I plan on carrying gas tomorrow so maybe i'll bring a little xtra Sunday too.

    Hello,

    I am making a trip to Reno - house shopping - next week. Will be in Reno the nights of 16-18 and will probably stay w/ family in Minden for a night.

    Won't have a bike, but can provide dinner or chores for any one that is willing to let me stay on their couch.....

    Sorry I can't help, but if you're in Reno on Wed. the 17th head over to PJ's for a drink and check out bike night. Attendance has been good and you can meet fellow riders in town.

    Haven't seen much chatter about riding this weekend and the usual suspects that meet up at 4th & McCarren are unavailable.

    Anyone interested in riding in the Carson/Reno/Truckee area? If not, I think I'll just relax and float down the Truckee River. Hit me up either way.

    Is anyone planning to do the Ride Reno 200 in September? I'm thinking about signing up but would be hitting it solo, which I would rather not do. Just trying to see if there are any other solo guys wanting someone to ride it with or anyone who is cool with me tagging along.

    All my riding buddies ride sport touring bikes, so I'm trying to make some friends in the Adventure department.

    I will be ridding it. Are you planning to ride the adventure loops or one of the A or B loops?

    That sounds like a hell of a lot of fun! I've done that loop (well, very similar, went around 6-mile canyon way instead of moundhouse) in reverse. Will see if I can pull it off. My headlight is less than ideal, however. Hmmm..
