More than 100,000 motorcycle enthusiasts are expected in Ocean City, Maryland this weekend as part of the eighth annual Delmarva Bike Week. Bikers from all over the country are providing a shot in the arm to local businesses.

The piercing roar of tens of thousands of motorcycles can be heard from almost ten miles from Ocean City.

On Coastal Highway, thousands of people line the streets and sit in lawn chairs to catch a glimpse of exotic bikes, vintage Harleys, and custom choppers.

Doug Buxbaum, owner of the Buxy's Salty Dog Saloon, says its a big boost for his restaurant.

"Bike Week has turned into one of our very best weekends of the year, and thats including the summer months," Buxbaum says.

Former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich spent more than an hour at a crowded biker bar Friday, trying to win over leather vest wearing voters for his November rematch with Governor Martin O'Malley.
