Just got back from myrtle beach bike week last night. It was a blast. They say around 300,000 bikes came last year so I guess the same was for this year. The weather was not to bad rained a couple days and got caught in a good rain storm coming back from the hard rock cafe. I know you should wear your gear but when your down there in the warm beach weather with no shirt or helmet man that fells good, and your ususally going so slow on the strip that people walking on the sidwalk pass you.(It's like a parade for bikes) Girls everywhere just jump on the back of your back. The only down side it was during harley week so I was getting real tired of hearing them. Harleys and choppers(290,000) Sportbikes about (10,000) that was the odds so you should understand.
