Another year for the Nevada County Toy Run. So many bikes and people. This is a great ride...even if someone hurls a BIGASS rock at you on the run.

A whole row of trikes. Looks like they were made from a car chassis.

 

I wonder how manuerverable this is.

There were several bikes with sidecars.

 

Most of them had a "passenger".

So, remember in the beginning, when I said something about having a rock hurled at you? This is the result. It not only broke off my heat shield, but seriously dented the muffler. I thought it had hit my tire, so I didn't even check it until we stopped at the fair grounds. I was very lucky that it hit where it did. And the guy is lucky it was my bike he hit. Could you imagine if he hit a custom bike, or worst, someones leg? At this time (Spring 2016), court proceedings are happening, so I won't update this until everything's over, but check back for video and more pics.
