MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Businesses in Myrtle Beach are trying to lure more bikers to their stores during the spring motorcycle rally, but their efforts are meeting with mixed results.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (http://bit.ly/1lKbcLE) most bikers abandoned the city about six years ago after the city took steps to drive the rallies out of the city because officials said they had gotten too big.

Motel owner Raj Pankhania said he's booked for the Atlantic Beach rally on Memorial Day weekend, but hasn't gotten any bikers this week and has just 70 percent occupancy.

Pankhania said he believes bikers still harbor bad feelings over the city's moves. One couple staying in Myrtle Beach said they wouldn't have done so in the early days after the rules were enacted.
