Sweet- I didn't know there was such a big bike event in Erie. I am sending this to my bro to check out for next year. MUCH less of a hassle than Daytona from Pittsburgh!

LOL, apparently Erie didn't expect this big of an event either.
It will be interesting to see what they do next year. My guess is have the main parade on Saturday, or some other time when traffic will be less affected. If they had it any earlier in the day, there obviously wouldn't be all those people lining the roads watching. I don't think they expected 15,000 bikes on a Thursday afternoon.
I'm interested in what the turnout for the other two rides will be..... the one around the peninsula today, and the one from Erie out to wine country tomorrow, my neck of the woods
The fee for the rides is $5 and the money goes to the Shriners hospital, so it's all good.

Pacanis, My hubby was going to go to that, but wasn't feeling well so he stayed home. I'm not a big fan of motorcycles and I'm going on my first dice run tomarrow in Mayville it's a Harley for hospice run and at the end of the day they give away a Harley. My DD usually goes but has to work so I agreed to go instead, I'm already getting nervous.

Well have fun and enjoy yourself! I was thinking of riding through Mayville myself tomorrow. I was going to hook up with 394 and head up to the new Harley shop in Jamestown to check it out. Maybe we'll pass each other along the way
