We are only weeks away from one of the biggest motorcycle rallies in the country. Street Vibrations motorcycle rally occurs each September (with a spring rally to get ready for it) in Northern Nevada, with events taking place in Reno, Sparks and Virginia City, as well as locations around Lake Tahoe. The festival draws an estimated 50,000 motorcycle enthusiasts to the Northern Nevada area. In previous years the festival has unfortunately been marred by unfortunate events such as motorcycle accidents in Reno, fights and kerfuffles in the streets and in casinos, with the most famous unfortunate incident being the fight between rival motorcycle gangs in John Ascuaga’s Nugget Hotel and Casino in Sparks. This shooting and stabbing incident left many people injured in the Sparks Casino, and recently culminated in the guilty verdict for a member of the notorious Vagos motorcycle gang accused of murdering the head of a rival motorcycle gang, the Hells Angels. Residents of Reno, Sparks, and all of Northern Nevada are hoping for a more peaceful street vibrations, especially with news coming all the time of terrible fatal or injury motorcycle accidents in Reno and Northern Nevada.
