Rolling Thunder

It was pretty hard to miss all the bikers in town for this past weekend’s Rolling Thunder. We saw a whole bunch through Arlington on Friday and Saturday night, most likely missing Whitey’s that’s been gone a few years from its Washington Boulevard home.

The curb in front of Mexicali Blues was a lineup of some of the most beautifully cared for Harleys and BMWs and Hondas that I’d seen since I moved east from California. Shined up to a mirror finish on their chrome, and with a high gloss coat of wax on their beautiful hulls. The parking lot in front of my in-laws hotel was cram-packed full of bikes as well, parked three and four deep in the parking spaces.

I’ll admit to not understanding the loud factor of bikes, but I know they’re for a good cause this weekend, so roar it up, bikers!
