Scenes from Rockerbox
It was arguably one of the most visually arresting outdoor events (not counting the State Fair) you could have seen on Saturday.
After the rains fell and cancelled other events, the tents around Fuel Cafe (owner Scott Johnson is the organizer) found representatives showing off a dirt bike that ran the salt flats at 131 mph, ironwork featuring skulls and tiki gods, food from Fuel, Stonefly, Centro Cafe, and Frank N Stein’s; even live music revved up. Then the cycles came, and kept coming. There was no stereotype of rider — men and women, young and old, tattooed and clean, all rode up. There was a featured show set, a 3-engine long rider, 50cc mini-bikes, and cycles with sidecars.
