There are several well-known toy runs coming up here in So Cal. For a run near you, take a peak at Thunder Press, Full Throttle, or any other biker publication. I'll be posting here about some of the well established toy runs. I know other Forum members have already mentioned other toy runs that are scheduled.

Now some common sense reminders, that people somehow forget:
1. These events are for kids--don't go expecting to have a great time;
2. Don't bring just a stuffed animal--get something real.
3. Don't forget the older kids--you can carry a lot of computer games on a bike;
4. Buy toys on sale--you can get better and more toys that way.

Hope to see ya' at some of these events.

Huh? Anytime I can ride AND make a kid smile, I'm having a good time.

Some riders gripe because often times, no beer is served. Or there is no "entertainment" at the end of the ride. Or the end of the event is in a "nasty" area (i.e. Skid Row). I've heard all of these complaints at one time or another. I know it doesn't make sense. You know it doesn't make sense. But it still happens.

Famous San Diego Toy Run

The 22nd Annual San Diego Toy Run is Sunday, December 1st, leaving South Shore Park off of Sea World Dr., San Diego, CA @ 10:30 a.m. Goes out to Casino Pauma (no colors in casino).

For info, call: 619/223-0421 or www.sdtoyrun.com

This is a good event. Those of ya' in the San Diego area should try to attend.

Unfortunately, I have a seminar out of town, starting Sunday night, December 1st. If I push it, I'll be able to attend a local LA area run before leaving for my seminar.

Won't be able to make the San Diego Toy run this year. We do plan to come down for the Tijuana Toy Run though.

I'll be at the Tiajuana run either working it or just enjoying the ride. Even if I do work it I will still be riding. Hope to see you there.

Toy Run Today

I'm a bit surprised that no one is posting about the Toy Runs they've been on? Hmmm. Don't know what that means.

There were several worthwhile toy runs in So Cal this weekend. We took in the Skid Row Toy Run, outta Glendale H/D (Glendale, CA).

We met this one guy who look very familiar. I'm sure I've seen him somewhere before????

Success? Of course it was a success. How could it NOT be a success? Thousands of bike. Beautiful San Diego. A chance for lobster and margaritas in Baja? Success is guaranteed!!!!!

Did you take any pics?

It sounds like I missed a great run! I'm workin' way too much lately....hopefully next December will be different, and I'll be out there riding the toy runs, instead of sittin' here at night reading about them and wishin' I coulda been there!!

Glad it was a huge success! Thanks for sharing the pics!
