Move over, Myrtle Beach. Bikers coming to New Bern

Bikers may not be welcome in Myrtle Beach, but the original home of N.C. governors and Pepsi is putting fresh sheets on its proverbial bed.

"After 68 years in Horry County, the Carolina Harley-Davidson Dealers Association motorcycle rally is hitting the road," says the (Myrtle Beach) Sun News.

"The association announced Monday it will move its May rally to New Bern, N.C., a town where it said it feels welcome.

"The dealers association, which has sponsored the oldest and shortest of the May events, said it will hold this year's rally May 15 and 16 at the New Bern Fairgrounds.

"Lummus said New Bern has a waterfront, plenty of hotel rooms and history, and Myrtle Beach had made it clear the rallies were no longer wanted. ..."
