This years West Coast Thunder was my first experience and I would suggest that you make plans to attend next year. Or better yet, we make a group thing of it. Good ride, powerful scenery as you make your way from Riverside Harley Davidson to the Riverside National Cemetery and then out to the baseball stadium in Lake Elsinore. The route is controlled by CHP and CalTrans, so no stop lights or stop signs. Just cruising and waving at the thousands of people waving and kids giving you high fives as you go by. End the day with a concert at the baseball stadium. I will absolutely be doing it again. And the proceeds benefit the National Cemetery.
Out of 8,000+ bikes, I only saw one other Triumph. It was a Tiger 800. Most were Harley's of course, but there were several Indians, and a number of Honda's as well. Even a few dual sports.
