cb-bikefest.jpgDecided for day two of the 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest I would go in the evening because I knew there would be a lot more motorcycles around.  There sure was.  Didn’t get many pictures because there were so may people around they kept getting in the way.  You can see those below.  All so tried to get some more of the stunt show.  Yet again there was so many people.  Could not get close enough.  From what I could see there were a lot more motorcycles around this year.  Just not the ones in  town.  But all those I saw on the roads and park all around the city.

cb-bikefest.jpgToday (August 2, 2013) is day one of the 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest.  Took a ride in this afternoon to see the stunt show and see how many bikes were around.  There was a few around but there will be lots more the rest of the weekend.  I thought I was going to miss the stunt show since it started about 1pm and didn’t get there until about 1:30.  They were in full swing when I got here.  There were five guys four bikes and a guy with two ATV’s.  After I was there for a few minutes the lady on PA said the will concluded this show.  But they didn’t stop.  They kept riding for another 40 mins or so.  Ended up getting some pretty good pictures with my new camera.  There are two sets of pictures (below).  The ones with the bike point of view were taken with my GoPro.  There others were taken Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.

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.

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

 

Cape Breton Bikefest 2011 Pictures

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2011 by getbent57

It is day three of the 2011 Cape Breton Bikefest.  The rain had stopped so there were a lot a bikes out.   Looked like a lot more than last year.  Got to see the World Famous Wall of Death.  Lucked out there and got the last ticket for that showing.  It was pretty cool.  The main guy was funny, put on a good show.  There were two other guys there as well.  One was just a kid, 15 years old.  The best part was he got a lady to fold a five dollar bill, put it in her mouth then lean over the side.  He was going to ride up on the wall and take the money.  He missed a few tries, then got it but ended up dropping it.   While he was still riding the wall he got another bill and tossed it back at her to try again.  So he did it again.  Getting it the first try.

Walked around for a bit looking at the bikes taking a few pictures.  It was all most time for the burnouts.  Went down to pick out a spot.  Watched the safety training demo guys for a bit.   They were done, picked up their stuff.   No sign of any one for doing some burnouts.  Waited some more.  Then gave up.  Was disappointed, had a camera and video camera ready to go.  I guess will have to wait to next year.  All so disappointed that there was no stunt show either.

   

   

   

   

Cape Breton Bikefest 2011 Pictures

Today (July 29, 2011) is the first day of the 2011 Cape Breton Bikefest.  It was a prefect day out.  The sun was shinning and not too hot.  When I was heading in there were all kinds a bikes out.  Then main reason I went out was to check out the The World Famous Wall of Death.  Got there and the sign said the next show was at 5pm.  I was there around 1:30pm.  Was a bit disappointed.  Oh well will just have to go back in later to night.  Walked around taking some pictures.  If the rain holds off for Saturday will go out and get some more pictures and may be some video.  If not Sunday looks like the weather will be better.
