Just wondered how many of you have been to OC during bike week.

I've always avoided bike week like the plague; have zero tolerance for that obnoxious, unnecessary noise. I'm trying to get my elderly Mother to our condo, as she hasn't been there in over a year. Our schedules are leaving me no choice but to get her there around the 12th for a week or so.

I was in OC during cruising weekend and survived that one OK; just wondered what to expect during bike week and if it's any worse than the cruisers.
