"OK, Jimmy! I'm in Reno and doin' fine..........I work at Harrah's in Reno and we've heard from employees that were there. If Frank is in Harrah's, he won't be able to contact anyone till about now. All the casino's were locked down for security and investigation. Those inside were to be questioned. That's all I know. I'm fairly confident that we'll be hearing from the Hippo tomorrow or Monday. Later, John"
Pulled this off of my site. So we hang tight until Sunday.
Well we do know one thing. The incident happened in a Casino where you can't fart without an infra-red camera picking up the fumes and being able to tell what the guy ate last.
The biggest problem is the general public tends to throw all Harley Riders in the same basket. For instance, when you watch CNN you will note that the lame reporters state that The River run generally attracts 50,000 to 80,000 "Club Members."
Stuff like this is not good for anyone.
Good time for everyone to be a bit more careful than usual now. This riding season, like it or not, pulling into an establishment where you are not known will tend to make your intentions subject to a higher degree of scrutiny. Regular Bikers, Patch Holders and establishment owners as well as Joe Citizen in their car, are all going to be a bit on edge, so BE CAREFUL OUT THERE.
JimmyK, Hippo was in good spirits on Friday evening and did NOT suggest at all that he or any of his group were headed to Harrah's. Rather, as HighRider said they were probably safely back in the Lake Havasu area.
I haven't gone through all the new threads so if this is "old" news, please forgive me.
Oh, of the 80K at the River Run, IMHO there were less than 1000 patch holders. Laughlin has become a pretty pricey event. Those in attendance are typically upscale. The patchholders are the exception. What is particulary strange is that Harrah's is one of the best casinos in Laughlin. The crowd there is like the Golden Nugget crowd, upscale. Guess that doesn't stop some folks from dropping in.
