Toy Run

Early morning motorcycles, Bakersfield Toy run

I dragged myself out of bed this cold foggy morning to join in with (what one tv station reported at least) 6000 other bikers for the ride over to the fairgrounds to deliver toys and donations to the Salvation army.

Did I mention it was foggy?

I was glad I got up early as I got a nice spot up near the front of the lineup and enjoyed a cup of coffee provided by wonderful volunteers while I checked out some of the bikes.

 

Santa!

Snowman in Bakersfield?

People went all out and there were all sorts of decorations and everything from huge cruisers to little trail bikes. Even some very cool custom cars. Cruising through town while folks cheered and police held the intersections was fun. The food and festivities at the fair were great too. Look forward to next year, hope to do it again.

    • Yes, we haven’t had thick fog like that in a while since its been so dry, and even here in Bakersfield where we have a lot of motorcycles, I had never seen that many cruising all at once.
      The noise when we started out was very impressive:)
