It’s that time again. Time to begin thinking about throwing the passport in the saddlebag and making a fall trip through the desert to the greatest motorcycle fiesta just south of the border on the beaches of Rocky Point, Sonora, Mexico! Rocky Point Rally is preparing its Sweet 16 celebration and again promises to offer more venues, more bands, more beads along the popular Old Port route, bike show, desert rides, poker runs, and last but not least more beads along the popular Old Port route. The fiesta stretches from November 10–13, so save the date!
Last year’s 15th anniversary well surpassed expectations and all signs point to Sweet 16 nearing record numbers of close to 10,000 bikers in this seaside spot, located just an hour from the Arizona border. Along with record numbers, organizers are hoping to raise even more funds through voluntary registrations for the seven local charities that have benefited from the charity event since the Rally’s inception. These include a school for disabled children, cancer awareness and prevention groups, a home for the elderly, the local office for family and children services, plus the Red Cross and local Fire Department. Last year, additional funds from the Bike Show were put specifically toward scholarship programs.
This year a mix of Latin grooves, country and rock will ring out over the Sea of Cortez with participation of Rocky Point Rally regulars Matt Farris and Mogollon. Add to the mix renowned Mexican guitarist Javier Batiz—known for having instructed the likes of Santana—and you have the makings of the best party around. This Sweet 16 is going to be the sweetest.
