About 125,000 people are expected to take part in Muskegon Bike Time 2012, including many non-riders.
MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)- Muskegon Bike Time is underway on the lakeshore and organizers say its bigger and better than ever.
The city expects to welcome about 90,000 visitors and 35,000 motorcycles this weekend. The motorcycles are the main attraction, but even if bikes aren't your thing, there is plenty of food, music and entertainment.
"We have people coming from all over just to eat our fish dinner," says vendor Delania Peters.
"You got live bands going on," adds motorcycle rider Dexter Brown. "[There are] concerts in every tent."
People-watching is also a favorite pastime at Muskegon Bike Time.
"And I like the women," proclaims Muskegon resident Duane Gaultney. "I'm not afraid to admit that. [I like] summertime, the shorts."
"I used to think people who rode motorcycles always want to fight," says rider Lyrx Santiago. "It's not like that at all. They are really sweet people and they make you feel like family."
Bike Time runs through Sunday in Muskegon.
