Elko Motorcycle Jamboree 2008

This last weekend was the Elko Motorcycle Jamboree. It's actually slightly lame, slightly trashy but it's about as exciting as things will ever get in Elko so it's also still slightly fun. It's actually more like a fair with a big concert on Saturday night (this year it was Nazareth???), couple of stunt riders, special parking for motorcycles, lots of trashy tshirts and tiny little thongs. It's like a requirement to find the itty bittiest outfit you can find and wear it in public. Mike and I are hand in hand with dad on my other side, and we walk by this tent where sits a pretty girl in her 20s with a short dress with legs spread open. As we walk by she totally lifts her skirt and flashes Mike. Nice huh? That memory is burned in my brain forever.

Welcome to Elko.

Anyway, we really only walked around for a little while because dad wanted to look at helmets and jackets and then we spent most of the weekend actually out on the bikes riding around different areas outside of Elko. That part was pretty much a blast. So here are some pictures from our little outtings on the bike!

Lamoille Canyon

Out past Lone Mountain Station in the middle of nowhere :-)

These are pictures from last year's Jamboree just to give you an idea of how many motorcycles there are. You wouldn't believe how people come in from everywhere for this thing and yet these picture were taken earlier in the day so that was nothing!. Also, if you look at my surroundings in the last picture you'll see the bikini bike wash behind me. Oh! AND the guy taking a picture of the bikini bike washers. I tried cropping them out with not much success :-) ha!
