The 2018 Thunder By The Bay Motorcycle Festival

Attracting upwards of 40,000 people, “Thunder By The Bay” is four days of fun, music, and motorcycles in the heart of downtown Sarasota, Florida. The event features motorcycle shows, motorcycle gear and merchandise, charity rides, celebrity guests, and of course, great parties!

All proceeds raised during Thunder By The Bay benefit Suncoast Charities for Children, which provides support for special-needs children, teens, adults, and their families in the Sarasota area.

As the area’s leading motorcycle attorneys, we are outspoken advocates for motorcyclists and dedicated to educating the community about motorcycle law. Visit our booth at Thunder By The Bay to learn more about motorcycle safety, your rights as a motorcyclist, and the importance of being properly insured. You can also find lots of great resources for motorcyclists right here on our website, including lists of local motorcycle events and informative blog posts about motorcycle safety and law. Prevention, preparation, and awareness are the best protections you have on Florida’s congested roadways.
