Myrtle Beach bike rally sets dates

The Harley-Davidson dealer in Myrtle Beach has set the dates for this year's motorcycle rally.

The Sun-News of Myrtle Beach reports the rally will be held May 13-19. That's similar to the dates that is promoting, May 10-19.

The dealership's effort last year to create one two-week bike rally instead of having the Harley rally followed by Atlantic Beach Bikefest during Memorial Day created confusion and criticism.

General Manager Cindy Fine says the attempt to combine the festivals last year didn't work and the dealership will not try that again.

The Atlantic Beach bike festival is May 24-27.
