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.

 

Cherokee Rally Cancelled

One of the oldest motorcycle rallies in the South is on indefinite suspension. The Cherokee Survivors Motorcycle Rally & Concert has been cancelled until further notice. According to sources close to the rally, the Cherokee Tribal Council, who controls the Tribal Fairgrounds did not renew the promoter’s license. It was speculated that Council was responding to pressure from the management of Harrah’s Casino to end the rally, which has been in existence since the 1980’s. There is no word if and when the rally will resume.

Funny Caption Contest for March Issue

Ok..so there’s no motorcycle in this picture.  But,  we’ve all been to those “campground” style field rallies where the action is mostly “off” the bike.  So, as we gear up for spring, we thought it appropriate we pick this picture for our Caption of the Month contest.   Place your guess here, or on our Facebook Fan Page.

uh...is that what I think it is...
