It was part of a toy run that included around 2000+ bikes of all types. More crotch rockets than BMW's. In fact I only saw several Beamers. With the lousy media coverage we have here it didnt' even make the papers that several thousand bikes were involved in this event and the ride across town.
We didn't hear about it before hand, I only heard about it Saturday morning, the day before after I started searching to see if there was one.
Our local papers are your garden variety type liberal rag. Do something good for the community and it doesn't rate. Here are this morning's headlines:
Led Zeppelin to return to stage amid hype and nostalgia
Upscale Vegas hotels shoot for stars in bid to lure big spenders
Ellen Degeneres films segment in Flagstaff, NAU
And here's my favorite....:
Sturdy tree garners recognition
Yepper it's about a big sturdy tree that get's recognized for being a ..well..big sturdy tree.
but why cover the bike toy parade.......
These bikers were only donating couple thousand toys (worth $10.00 or more) and the entrance fee of $25.00 per person raised at least $50,000.00 and add at least a third of the bikes had two riders, another $17,000.00 in cash.
So, if my math is correct, 2000 toys, $10.00/toy = $20,000.00 (minimum)
$50,000.00 + $17,000.00 = $67,000.00 cash
Under privilege kids get $87,000.00 +/- in toys and cash.
But damn..that sure is a sturdy tree !!!
