Myrtle Beach Bike Week and the Atlantic Beach Bikefest: Tips For Visiting Motorcyclists
Motorcycle occupants have more at stake than the average car occupant.

South Carolina currently ranks third in the country in the number of motorcycle fatalities per year for the number of registered drivers.

Myrtle Beach Bike Week and the Atlantic Beach Bikefest traditionally bring in hundreds of thousands of people in the spring and 25,000 in the fall. The excitement and distractions increase the risk of an unexpected event. Here are a few tips to help drivers and riders stay safe so they can enjoy their visit.
