Re: laughlin river run

First time for me. Went to oatman and that was cool but other than that,I was not impressed. With an event that big it was surprising to me that Harley was not there.

Re: laughlin river run

I have been to the last 4 , seems to be to much police protection to me just went to see the vendors on Friday found something I liked so went back on Saturday with the truck to pick it up . Not as good as it used to be THE POLICE ARE RUINING IT FOR EVERYONE they just want to make a buck . I heard that there was 10,000 less bikers this year than last year . But it may have something to do with all the Yuppies losing their bikes . You may be surprised on how many people that ride bikes dont really know how to ride .

Just a wild guess on my part, but you don't suppose that the long history of violence associated with the event could possibly have anything to do with it??

There is not really a long history of violence @ the Laughlin river run it was just a 1 time incident by 2 1% clubs . I have gone for last 4 year & have only seen peaceful people enjoying themselves being harrassed by the police .

Re: laughlin river run

I've been to the Laughlin River Run every year since 2000... and I love it. Same vendors, same crowd, and yes, same overkill with police. Did notice a smaller crowd this year and less vendors. This was the first year HD wasn't there, and I was very suprised. Sign of a crappy economy I guess.
