2011 Wichita Toy Run

For those in the Wichita, Ks. area. I'm a little late on posting this up but the Wichita Toy Run is tomorrow morning! Line up starts at 10:30am, roll out at 1pm. Line up location: Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. I'll be there before 6:30am with my ALR group. My American Legion Post 401 at 31st & Broadway is having an all you can eat breakfast for $6 a head. There will be a shuttle service from Lawrence-Dumont to the Post and back, so if you wanna park your bike towards the front, this may be a fine option for getting some grub.

All cleaned up and ready for the run tomorrow.



As I was cleaning tonight, the ground trembled and the garage started shaking. The news said there was an earthquake measuring 5.6 near OKC and was felt in parts of Arkansas, Texas, Kansas, Illinois, and Missouri.

A few pics from the toy run. I saw many shark riders in the run. I even found a Tour Glide with a sidecar. There was nearly 3,000 bikes.

I saw this too late. Seems like it sure came up fast this year.

Then again, maybe it's good thing I missed it. I guess a couple of people got hurt. Did you see any of that?

I had already arrived at the Kansas Coliseum when the accident happened. I heard the people that caused the wreck had been drinking in the parking lot at the stadium. It doesn't surprise me since there is a bar at one end of the parking lot and they were trying to attract business during the toy run. There was people who missed leaving out with our group last year cause they were in the bar.
