I don't live in Myrtle Beach but have been going to MB since 1986 (we go three weeks each year). My wife and I always go the week after Memorial Day weekend (this is one of our weeks here). I don't think that the city has such a problem with the HD bike week as they have problems with the "other" bike week which occurs at this time. According to the people working at the restaurants that we have talked to, they don't like the week because the people that they serve don't believe in leaving tips and there are always problems of "some of the people" trying to skip out without paying their bills. Also, a lot of the merchants complain about the "shop lifting" that occurs with this "other bunch." I think the biggest thing that MB is tryiing to rid itself of is the "roudy" bunch that comes to this "other" rally. Overall, "it" will not be a loss for MB. I do hate to see the HD rally move as I have had many a good conversation with some of the riders when they are in town -- and no, I don't ride.
