We are booked to attend our first Thunder Beach Rally (Panama City Beach, Fl.). We will be traveling as a group with the bikes in tow from the Indianapolis area. So who's going, who has attended past rallies, whats good, whats not?

Never been but thinking of going this year even though its Derby Weekend, which is the best time of the year to be in Louisville. I've heard a lot of good things about the rally.

Do you know where you guys are staying yet? I'm gonna try to find a place close to one of the main rally sites, which I think are at each end of the beach. 'Course theres stuff going on all up and down the beach.

Don't think I can make that one. How many of you going together? It would be nice though...

BTW, are you going to Shark Week II in July?

Official dates are May 2 to May 6, 2012. We are traveling with about 6 couples total but not staying with the group (they rented a large house a little out of the area). My wife and another couple are staying at the Long Beach Resort across the street from Coyote Ugly and close to Pineapple Willies. We plan to arrive on Sat the 28th and leave Sat the 5th.

www.thunderbeachproductions.com/ has some good info.

Shark Week.... Really want to but that is a very busy month and just cannot commit to it yet.:)

I'm going for the first time myself this year. Supposed to finalize our hotel this week as soon as I can get a final head count. We're staying at the Sandpiper Beacon, I've heard it's right it in the heart of all the events, plus they have allot of events/partys at the hotel and vendors on site.

I've heard nothing but good things from folks who've been to the rally. I also looked up some annual weather statistics for May in Panama City, it's their lowest month for rainfall with an average temp of 78!!

We had a great time at the '09 Spring Thunder Beach and we're finally getting back down there this Spring. It's a great ride down and a great time there on the beach. We found Condos at the Aqua Resort near Pier Park and right across from Shuck 'ems so we are in a short walking distance to a bunch of places where we might encounter adult beverages.
