Thunder Beach is a trademark term and is used to identify the twice annual motorcycle rallies held in Panama City Beach Florida.  There is no connection between this and Panama Beach Bike Week, which is a group of businessmen operating outside the official framework of Thunder Beach, often without licenses or liability insurance.   It is our recommendation that you purchase only official licensed merchandise and only shop at official venues which support the rally and help keep it free.
