In May, Quick Throttle Magazine kicked off its Bike Nights 2008 series at the Junction Sports Bar & Grill in Grand Mound, WA. The riders were blessed with perfect riding weather, sunshine and temps in the 70’s!
The parking lot was packed with an assortment of bikes ranging from Harleys, Indians, Customs, Metrics, and as always, a few rat bikes. The sight of all that chrome and leather drew a ton of attention from those on the highway.
The Junction, which boasts one of the largest, coolest, outdoor beer gardens, complete with a stage, was a great place to sit, eat and mingle. As always, the owners, Rex and Lynn, went above and beyond for the riders serving a delicious meal of barbecued ribs, burgers, chicken, polish dogs and side dishes, not to mention the beer & drink specials. The staff was great, always happy, and working hard. In house, the featured band, Blues Attitude, rocked the crowd.
At each Quick Throttle Bike Night riders have a chance to “Win an all expense paid trip to The Thunderboat Regatta, in San Diego, CA. for 2.” The trip, Sept. 19th-21st, will include airfare, hotel accommodations in Mission Bay-San Diego, CA, motorcycle rentals and a full weekend pass to all the activities at the Regatta for free! Value of this package is in excess of $3,000.00. There is no catch. It doesn’t cost you a dime. Just show up at any or all of our Quick Throttle Bike Nights and simply fill out a raffle ticket. It’s that easy! Drawing will be held on August 21st, 2008.
