Laughlin, Nevada-AP -- Police consider an annual biker rally in Nevada a success, but one motorcyclist says the event was like having your dad watching all the time.
Bikers began rolling out of Laughlin today, ending a rally marked by a heavy police presence. However, the 21st Annual Laughlin River Run was free of the violence that erupted between rival biker gangs a year ago.
Last year, two Hell's Angels and one Mongols motorcycle gang member were killed and at least 12 were hurt in a brawl inside Harrah's Laughlin casino.
This year, one motorcyclist died in a crash just outside Laughlin, and several others were hurt in a second crash two hours later near the same spot.
Some say a ban on biker gang insignia and the large police presence will make them think twice about attending next year.
