Bike week is finally over! Now the locals can go about our business and enjoy the hopefully beautiful weather to come, without the constant roar of herds of motorcycles.
I have read many times about how wonderful this week of torture is for the local economy, but statistics are few and far between. There are many itinerant vendors all over the place that pay their fees to set up shop and then take the revenues with them. For sure many hotels, bars, restaurants , etc. see a large spike and depend on the business this nine day event brings, but how much revenue does it bring to the bottom line for the state? We'll probably never know for sure, but at least we have another 51 weeks or so before it is upon us once again.
