Biketime at the Rez - 2016 Welcomes the Second Year of the Annual Festival at the New Location

2015.  It's in the history books and the controversy of some perceived battle between Summertime motorcycle events is a thing of the past.  One thing for certain came out of all the "to do" last Summer and that was Muskegon is more than capable of hosting events in town in more than one location and that we all need to realize that the more we have to offer, the more people will come to see what Muskegon is....a damn good place to have a REALLY good time!

Year two with the Biketime Festival out at the old Great Lakes Downs property, now owned by the Little River Band will see a few changes.  First.  Free admission.  If you're coming out to stroll and see the sights...there won't be a charge for the festival atmosphere.  There will be cruising lanes for motorcycles, plenty of parking for festival goers and they will also have onsite camping for RV's.

Music?  They have music for just about any taste!  Biketime at the Res welcomes, Let There Be Rock a tribute to AC/DC, Dancin' Days, a West Michigan Led Zeppelin tribute band,  The Rock Show Ultimate Tribute to Journey, The LAV Summertime Blues at Biketime featuring Wayne Baker Brooks and Scotty Batcher, and Wayland will all be playing!  It's a great time.  Check out the Biketime website for the scheduled performance times.

Attractions?  You mean all that great music and all those motorcycles are not enough?  Well, ok.... Scott Murray will be on hand, he's one of only 4 motorcycle riders in the world to land a double backf flip at the X Games.  Kind Tony's Busted Knuckles Stunt Show is coming, The Relentless Stunts Show will perform through the run of the show, THE WALL OF DEATH will have hourly shows and if you think you're man enough... The West Michigan Arm Wrestling Championships will be held at Biketime on the Rez.  Need a brake from bikes?  Take a spin in the Ultimate NASCAR Experience and see what it feels like to drive in the Sprint Cup Series!  Again, check out the Biketime Page for times.

I had a chance to catch up with Tim Lipan who's the spokesman and marketing guy at Biketime.  Take a listen to our chat below!

It's 10 years now.  So Hard to believe that Biketime has been going strong in Muskegon that long.  I remember the first year like it was yesterday.  I turned from Shoreline Drive to Western and my jaw hit the floor.  The masses or people.  The motorcycles.  The spectacle.  The thought that MY TOWN was filled with something so amazing....I couldn't have felt better.  Up's and downs are a thing of the past and Biketime turns 10!  It's an amazing event and hopefully, you can check it out in just a couple short weeks!  We'll see you there!
