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.

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.

The 2011 Cape Breton Bikefest is a month and a bit way.  There is some cool news to share.  The World Famous Wall of Death are bringing their “Motorcycle Thrill Show”.  You might have see this type a of act on tv.  If not, it is a stunt show were riders, ride ins a barrel shaped cylinder.  Once they get going really fast they ended up riding the wall horizontally doing all kinds of tricks.  The should be a blast to see in person.  I am sure the line will be long to catch the show.  Will have to get there early to get a good spot.  The 2011 Bikefest will be July 29 to August 1.
