Joe Kirkish was Pasty Cam's roving reporter/photographer last weekend in Copper Harbor for the annual ride-in, dubbed “Thunder in the Harbor.” Joe filed the following report to accompany his photos:

The bikes dribbled in, a few at a time, complaining about the rain they faced along the way, but the sun came out and the fun began. Bikes lined the same street occupied last week by the vintage cars and ran for blocks along Copper Harbor's main street. The majority were Harley Davidsons, but a few smaller, more colorful bikes were spotted, too. Bikers often have the reputation of being wild and raucous, but it was far from rowdy; the only noise came when the bikes roared up. In the afternoon, a carnival atmosphere prevailed - bike related crafts in tents, brats and hot dogs served with pop and beer. Games followed, including the ones pictured here... mechanical bull riding and a water-filled balloon toss, with the riders getting soaked pretty good when the balloon hit the target... them!
Plenty of good, clean, U.P. fun where the Bikers - and onlookers - all had a great time.

Yup that's what it's like every good weather weekend in Savanna Il. Get ticked once in a while when some one gets TOO noisy. But loved to sit out front of our gallery and watch! Most bikers are friendly and enjoy sharing their fun. Miss it here at the senior apartments this summer you can imagine.

Hey, is that our yellow Wing?? Looks like a fun time, sorry it's not our Wing.

Has anyone see the contest coke is putting on?
vote I think
Keweenaw National Historic Park has got a chance. We won the
Humane society contest right? We are a bit behind the leader, but
you can vote as many times are you would like.

Ps. It requires a flash player and you have to search for Keweenaw
to find it.

I voted. Several times!

Cool bike pics! And folks behaved...how wonderful.

Not like "Back in the Day!" Boy...if these pics were taken 30 years ago...I think they'd be a little different! (Right? My fellow Harbor Rats...) Wow...I remember bartending at the Mariner during one Oktoberfest..Standing at the bottle opener with a case of good old Bosch long necks...just opening bottles and selling 'em just as fast...we ran out of that brand that night! LOL (Good old Bosch..reminds ya of "The Flopper"...he liked his Bosch...RIP Flop!!)

Happy Weekend everyone! TGIF!!!
