First, of course, going in you have to get your hand stamped at the gate. No silly picture or symbol but a proper skull as befits a biker event. I believe this is my first skull other than the thick one around my brain. Does this qualify as a tattoo or am I still not hip?
The vendor attendance seemed about the same as last year but there were way more people this year. The swap meet doesn't attract much of the Gold Wing crowd, it's pretty much a V-twin sort of group with representation from both ends of the M/C spectrum from the Hells Angels to Bikers For Christ and Black Sheep. I like the diversity.

These photos were taken with my new Olympus E-PL1 camera, the Sony NEX-3 having disappointed me enough in the using to send it back. The Oly takes extraordinarly good photos although it has it's own short comings.
Next week we are off to the Great Southwest Scooter Fiesta. I'm pretty sure it will be a different crowd there and probably not as interesting. Should be fun though. I wonder if the 81 crew from Mesa will have a booth? Probably not but I'd pay $5 to see the reactions if they did.
