The chance to win two motorcycles - an Indian Scout and a Harley Davidson Iron 883 - for only a $1 investment was bringing lots of visitors to the information table at the Four Corners Motorcycle Rally on Friday.
As the rally opened for its first full day, the Indian Motorcycle demo rides were particularly popular, along with the ticket sales to win the bikes. Budweiser was flowing in the beer tent as local bands started performing for the rally's first visitors.
Rally-goers stopped by the information booth to also put a pin in a U.S. map showing where they came from for the weekend-long event.
Arizona, Colorado and Texas were well-represented, of course, but one visitor drove for a week from Alaska to attend.
"It's bigger than us," one volunteer said of the rally. "It's about bringing people to this area and showing them where we live."
Music is a big part of the event, as well. Los Lonely Boys play at 10 p.m. on Friday. On Saturday night, Rockin' Dobpsy and the Zydeco Twisters, a band from New Orleans, will headline in the entertainment tent. On Sunday, they will perform again, along with local favorite Third Time Charmed. Admission is $15 per day, or $40 for a weekend armband.
Rally organizers are hoping the rain clouds stay at bay. The chance of rain decreases from 50 percent on Friday night to 20 percent on Saturday. Sunday has a 10 percent chance of rain, according to the National Weather service, and Monday is forecast to have clear skies for Labor Day.
