Laughlin River Run Starts This Week


“Riding the River for Thirty Years”, the Laughlin River Run starts this week on Wednesday, April 25 and runs through Saturday, April 28. The Vance & Hines Show Truck will be setup in front of the Edgewater right in the middle of Casino Drive along the Colorado River.

This year, Vance & Hines will be working with J&P Cycles for sales and installation of Vance & Hines exhausts, VO2 air intakes and Fuelpaks throughout the rally.

The Vance & Hines Show Truck will have on display all of its latest products for the most popular Harley-Davidson Touring models including slip-ons like the Hi-Output, Monster Round, Monster Oval and Twin Slash Round. And all of the slip-ons pair up nicely with Power Duals or Dresser Duals head pipes.

For Softail and Dyna riders, there will be plenty of choices as well from dual systems like Big Shots Staggered and Big Radius to the newest 2-into-1 designs like the Pro Pipe Chrome. A particular favorite at Laughlin is always Softail Duals paired with Fishtail end tips, giving a slammed Deluxe or any other Softail model the perfect old school look.

Another new model that will be on display is the 2012 Dyna Switchback. Fitted from the factory with a 2-into-1 style exhaust, Vance & Hines offers two true dual options to turn the Switchback into a real bagger with its Switchback Twin Slash Duals and Switchback Monster Duals.

And Sportster riders will also be glad to see there are plenty of offerings available just like what the big twins get, including Big Radius 2-into-2 and Shortshots Staggered.

For three decades, the River Run has been the largest motorcycle rally on the westcoast. Whether riding from the east or west, Historic US Route 66 makes for a great ride through the desert to get to Laughlin. And there’s plenty of great riding in the area going up to Kingman or Oatman. And when the bikes are parked, there’s tons of entertainment to enjoy including concerts, vendors, and of course a little time spent with Lady Luck at the tables. Keep up with all the latest at and at
