11th annual toy run. The weather was perfect! Sure did make up for last year's weather. I was probably one of the first 100 bikes to show up. My bike is to the right in this picture.

Was expecting more scooters to show up since there were about a dozen last year.

 

But as it turns out, I was the only scooter in a sea of about 2000 motorcycles.

Renegade had music playing and had a few booths setup at the store.

 

Troy made announcements throughout the morning.

After several years of missing this group, they found me in the crowd. Tony, Dreama, Charles, and Cemme.

 

Our escorts. These guys did a great job blocking traffic and leading us to the casino.

This bike always leads the way.

 

Cute Snoopy decorations.

 

There were a lot of bikes with cute stuffies on them. Here are as many as I could find.

The line to get into the food tent was super long.

 

There were a lot of vendors in the tent as well as the band.

Food was pretty good.

 

Later, they had some good chicken wings in the buffet.
