Hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts will pass through Barstow on their way to Laughlin River Run 2009, the largest bike rally on the west coast held in Nevada this weekend, including this group cruising down East Main Street Thursday morning.

While George and Irene Lines of Victorville, who stopped in Barstow for breakfast, have participated in the festivities for nine years, the couple said they enjoy the ride up to Laughlin more. "That's what these bikes are about ride 'em," said George.
