April 21, 2009. Myrtle Beach, SC.. After years of hosting hundreds of thousands of bikers for the annual Bike Week and Black Bike Week rallies, the city council of Myrtle Beach has passed new motorcycle laws to try and put an end to the rallies and promote a more family oriented experience. Many local business owners are outraged at the loss off revenue and the ordinances are to be challenged in court.. James Shore, left, the asst. manager of Scooter and Cycles in downtown Myrtle Beach, shows bikes to Kevin Ault, a laid off construction worker, who now works 2 part time jobs to make ends meet. Shore says he is lucky to sell a bike a week in this economy and worries the new rules will only hurt the shop more.
