Some of the Laughlin event attendees who went on the Oatman ride.

We had about 20 Vmaxes show up for this event, although not all at once. Ride to and through the ghost town of Oatman AZ, breakfast/dinner meetings, Vmax 'showoff' ride down the packed Laughlin strip, and breakfast meeting with Yamaha officials highlighted this event.
