Bike Week is Here

by September 25, 2008 • 4 comments

Hoards of bikers arrived yesterday with many more to arrive today.  Most venues were not open last night, but Ms. Newby’s, as always, was slammed.  With all the venues to open today, Panama City Beach is expected to be slammed with bikers from around the southeast US and beyond.

I will be posting updates and pictures as the week rolls on, stay tuned for updates.

I was one on the thousand of bikers that decended upon PCB for Thunder Beach. This is my 3rd year coming to both the Fall and Spring rallies and I really enjoy it. The local patrons really make us feel welcome. On the down side, In was parked in the Moby Dick parking lot adjacent to Ms Newby’s and someone stole my motorcycle. I called the local Bay County Sherrif’s Dept and they responded very timely (Thank you). The Bay County Officer told me that he ahd never heard of a motorcycle being stolen during Thunder Beach. Wish I could be that lucky in the lottery. I still haven’t recovered my motorcycle so please be on the lookout for a Dark Cherry and Pewter 2007 Harley Heritage Classic. Any tips should be turned into the Sherrif’s Dept. For the rest of my brother and sisters that ride, lock and alarm your bikes as there are some bad people out there. Hope to have another bike (if insurance will cover the loss) soon and return to Thunder Beach but beware I will not take kindly to anyone near my bike.

Regards Joe

HELLO JASON,
I AM SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MISFORTUNE! WE DON’T BRING OUR BIKE TO VERY MANY RALLY’S ANY MORE. JIM HAS A OLD 1971 SHOVELHEAD OUT OF NEW ORLEANS AND EVERYTIME WE DO TAKE IT WITH US, THE TASK FORCE ALWAYS WANTS TO MESS WITH JIM’S OLD BABY. I THINK THEY JUST WANT IT! WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHT PAPERS AND ALL THE RIGHT NUMBERS. THEY ARE JUST A PAIN IN THE ASS. THEY ALWAYS START WHEN WE SEEM TO BE THE BUSIEST AT OUR VEDING STAND. WE WORK SO MANY HOURS AT THESE RALLY’S. WE DON’T GET MUCH CHANCE TO RIDE ANY WAY.
WE HOPE THAT THEY WILL DO THEIR JOB AND FIND YOUR BIKE! GOOD LUCK!!!
IF YOU GOT ANY OTHER PICTURES OF PANAMA CITY FALL RALLY. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL OF THEM.
THANKS,
JIM & ROSE CHAMPAGNE
