Thousands of people expected at Laughlin, Nevada motorcycle rally

Thousands of bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts are arriving now in the Colorado River resort town of Laughlin, Nevada and will be there over the next few days for a weekend motorcycle rally. 

The 28th annual Laughlin River Run is one of the largest ride-in motorcycle rallies in the western U.S. 

Attendance last year was 33,600, but in past years crowds have topped 60,000. 

The weekend rally was marred by a fatal biker gang shootout in 2002 when three people were killed and more than a dozen were injured in a brawl between Hell’s Angels and the Monogols at Harrah’s Laughlin.
