Today (Aug 1, 2010) was day three of the 2010 Cape Breton Bikefest.  Took a walk around to check out the different types of bike.  There was a lot of old boring looking Harleys.  How ever there were some nice bikes around.  There was the type of BMW I want to buy and it was the colour I like too.  It is the dark blue one.

Today (July 31, 2010) is day two of the Cape Breton Bikefest.  Went and check it out in the morning.  Not too much going on. Decided to go buy a hat but they ran out.  So ended up buying a pin.   Went back in the afternoon to see the burn outs and the stunt show.  Had a good time.  The burn outs were great.  Lots and lots of smoke and a bunch of popped tires.

In a few more days the 2010 Cape Breton Bikefest will kick off.  July 30 to August 2, 2010.  So can’t wait.  I book that Saturday off.  I missed the burn out pit last year.  Don’t want to miss it this time around.  I am pretty sure there are going to be more bikes this year.  Plan to take all kinds of pictures.  So come back later on during this up coming weekend to see some pictures.

This years up coming Cape Breton Bikefest has new motorcycle as the grand prize.  This year it is a 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO.  I am not the biggest Harley fan but they do make some really nice looking bikes and this one is no different.  According to the Canadian Harley website the MSRP is $33,259.  That is a nice prize for a $40 ticket.

The 2010 Cape Breton Bikefest: Thunder In The Highlands will take place July 30 to August 2.  They redid their website. (click the link above).  This looks much better this year.  Last years was fine at the start but they started adding things that didn’t fit the design.  So it looked like an yearly 2000 website by the end.  Any who can’t wait to this year.  Hope to see more bikes and take all kinds of pictures.

Cape Breton Bikefest Day Three

cb-bikefest-thumb.jpgToday (Aug 2, 2009) was day three of the  Cape Breton Bikefest: Thunder in The Highlands.  There was not too much going on  I think most of the bikes were out about.  It was nice out so most of them must have been going around the trail and what not.  Well there is a concert and they are picking the winner of the OCC bike, but that was not till later in the night.  Didn’t take too many pictures today.

Cape Breton Bikefest Day Two

cb-bikefest-thumb.jpgToday was day two of the Cape Breton Bikefest: Thunder in The Highlands.  There were a lot more bikes out today (Aug 1, 2009).  Thought there would be.  I achieved my goal of parking my bike, a Yamaha XT 225, next to bigger and shiner looking bikes.  I got a good laugh out of it.  I took some more pictures today.  Not as many as yesterday.  Every thing was pretty much as yesterday but they had a bike dyno and the army was next to that.

cb-bikefest-thumb.jpgWell today was day one of the Cape Breton Bikefest: Thunder in The Highlands.  It was really nice out but super hot.  I mean way to hot to be out.  But any who check out the bikefest.  There were lots of bikes there and more riding around.  I think there will be more out tomorrow being Saturday.   Took lots of pictures.  Only going to upload a few of the cooler ones.  Bought my self a t-shirt and got to watch a stunt show.   That was pretty cool.  Seeing it in person is much nicer than watching a video.  One of the guys saw me taking pictures so started to a donut in front of me.  Got that on video.  I’ll upload that later.

Cape Breton Bikefest Starts Tomorrow

cb-bikefest-thumb.jpgThe Cape Breton Bikefest: Thunder in The Highlands starts tomorrow, (July 31, 2009).  I booked this weekend so I can go.  I think it should be fun.  I have never took part in a bike rally before.  Not to sure if I go on any cruises.  Looking forward to checking out all the bikes.  One of my goals is to park my Yamaha next to a bunch a Harleys and take a picture.  Then leave before they chase me away, lol.  Plan to take lots of pictures.  So they well be on here.
