I went to the yearly motorcycle fair in León on Friday and swung by again on Saturday. It seems to be one of, if not the biggest biker meet in Mexico and I've heard numbers hovering around 50,000 visitor mark. If thusly inclined, feel free to research the official number on your own. What I do know is that the Leon fair was completely swamped with bikers and motorcycles. Primarily chromed big Harleys, then a few crotch rockets, and but one dusty Japanese thumper.
There was a lot of accessories being sold by the numerous stands and among the things still hot for Mexican bikers, besides bull testicle key chains, are Nazi themed accessories. There were Swastica pins, SS pins, third reich patches - you name it. I couldn't help but think of the outrage if this had been Sweden or any other European country for that matter. And I guess I'm a bit damaged by political correctness because I ended up with a Suzuki pin for wifey, despite the vast availability of nazi themed accessories. The conclusion remains that Mexican bikers are still not as sensitive as their European counterparts.
Anyways, good fun. Bikers are a merry bunch. In general though, they could use a good dose of this to up their score in the style department. And you hear all these comments about "biker brotherhood" and whatever. The guy who stole my helmet mustn't have been a brother.
Not for Pussies!
