July 12, 2014 - Bikers from near and far are making their way to Erie for the second annual Harley Davidson Bikefest.

It’s an event that was inspired by one of the quickest growing motorcyce rallies in the country, Roar on the Shore.

At BikeFest, you can find vendors from all over, get the latest BikeFest gear, take part in poker runs and scavenger hunts, and get some live entertainment.

Harley Davidson owner Kelly Lapping said this event is something that shows off what Erie has to offer.

And what better way to draw in more people than with some national talent?

Rhett Rotten is a professional rider for America's number one motorcycle stunt show.

He's performed in Erie before, but said he made sure he came back to a city, that's treated him so well in the past.
