bikertv.jpgEpisode 79 of Biker TV which aired today (December 16, 2012) had a segment about this years Cape Breton Bikefest.  It showed some of Storm the Fort and the wedding that took place there.  It was nice to see some stuff from the Bikefest.  If you have never seen the show before.  It not all the great.  It has a low rent tv news feel.   But hay it is a motorcycle show that is on tv.   They recently started putting their shows on YouTube > Here.  The show is below.  The Bikefest segment starts at the 16min 17sec mark.

Went in this morning took check out the 2012 Cape Breton Bikefest.  Want to take a look around, see the Thunder King (that’s the bike you can win, pictures below).  And all so to check out the stunt show.  Was a bit early so walked around for a bit and bought a new bikefest t-shirt.  Didn’t like the look of this years ones so bought a last years one.  Only because it was a nice blue.

It was super hot.  So while waiting for the show to start found a nice spot with some shade.   The show itself was ok.  Each guy at first took turns showing off.  Then they all went at once.  At the end the two of them smoked their tires off.  Do have some crappy video of that.  Will take a look and see what I can do with it.  Below are just some of the pictures I took.

This years motorcycle being rallied at the Cape Breton Bikefest is called the Thunder King.  While I don’t have or found any pictures to share yet but there is some good news.  According to the Bikefest Facebook page it will be unveiled tomorrow (August 2, 2012) in front of the Casino in Sydney around 11:30 am.  Not sure if I will be able to get  there.  Hoping to get some pictures on Saturday.  Think they will have it set up some were in the vendor village.  Which reminds me I need to charge up the batteries in my cameras.

In a bit more than a month the 2012 Cape Breton Bikefest will be going on (August 3rd to 6th).  Look forward to going ever year.  The reason I am talking about it today is the website is running a pretty sweet contest.  The prize are a three night stay that The Delta Sydney during the bikefest, all so two tickets to Storm The Fortress and two tickets the Eskasoni Cultural Experience.  The draw date is July 1, 2012.  The date as I am type this (June 26, 2012) so there is not much time if you are interested in entering.

They are all so draw for a custom motorcycle again this year.  It is called “Thunder King”.  Tickets are $40.  Don’t know what it looks like yet.  But when I do, will post some pictures.  The website says Unveil in early July.

2012 Review

2012 Well decide to watch 2012 because some people at work said it was really good.  I beg to differ.  It is an ok check you mind at the door disaster flick.  I am fine with that.  It wasn’t as great as they made it out to be.

It starts off great.  Was thinking if stays this good it will be different than every other disaster movie.   That didn’t last long because the disaster stuff started and it got sillier and sillier.  After that it turned into a very run of the mill Hollywood go us movie.

This is a rent at best.  There are some cool action and funny moments.  It doesn’t bring any thing new to the table.
