Thirty thousand motorcycle enthusiasts are expected roll into Northern Nevada for the annual Street Vibrations Music, Metal and Motorcycles Fall Rally this week.

Although not an officially sanctioned part of the event, Carson City’s Harley-Davidson has a full line-up of music, stunt demonstrations and other entertainment beginning Thursday.

A fireworks show will be 7:30 p.m. Friday. Thursday through Sunday.

The store, 2900 Research Way, will offer extended hours from 8 a.m-8 p.m.

A new Street Vibrations headquarters in downtown Virginia City will provide sales of official merchandise and registration opportunities for motorcycle enthusiasts.

The historic town will offer live music, vendors and parking for more than 400 bikes.

“Our participants particularly enjoy the curve-studded ride up historic Geiger Grade,” said Randy Burke, president of Roadshows, Inc. producer of Street Vibrations. “They like to drink in some of the local history in this famous mining town.”

“This year, we’re having a lot of bike parking on Virginia Street in downtown Reno and in Virginia City so motorcycle participants get a plum parking spot and enthusiasts can enjoy all the bikes,” Burke said. “We have more than 250 vendors coming from 35 different states.”

Live entertainment included Monte Perlin’s Globe-O-Cross Stunt Show and tribute bands performing free concerts on numerous stages.
