A large motorcycle group visited Caliente for the first time last week.

They come from all walks of life and travel worldwide to ride their bikes.

Dan Nelson, who seemed as if he was the leader of the pack, David Farris, and “Mike the Bike,” took a few moments to talk to the Record. They recently took a trip to Ba Ja, Mexico. Some of their trips have included the Arctic Circle, China, South Africa, Brazil and Costa Rica.

They have nicknames for each other and one was their “fall” guy because he had a relatively minor accident and scraped up his elbow. As mentioned this was their first trip to Caliente and obviously it boosted the economy given the hotels were full and the restaurants were busy.

When asked how he found out about Caliente, Nelson told me he is good friends with a gentleman located near Las Vegas who owns a tour company and recommended the area.
