Motorcycles in Florida for Daytona
Today’s my first day back in the office after taking a couple days off to go to Florida. I flew in on Wednesday, and drove back Saturday morning and most of Sunday. I should probably preface this post by saying I don’t go to Daytona for Bike Week. Someone’s got to put out American Iron Magazine when Buzz, Chris, and Joe are there! I can say from firsthand knowledge, though, that it’s already shaping up to be a great event. Driving past Bruce Rossmeyer Harley-Davidson and the J&P Cycles building, I saw staff busy at work prepping for Bike Week. I also learned that the term Bike Week can be used pretty loosely. There were tons of Harleys riding around with out-of-state plates while I was down there. And, on the way back, there were a bunch of groups riding on the other side of 95. That got me thinking, if possible to get away for two weeks, that’s the best way to do Daytona. Spend the first week racking up the miles, then partake in the fun activities of Bike Week. Especially for those coming from Northern states, you might as well give yourself as much time as you can to ride Florida’s roads so you won’t mind taking time away from riding to check out all the fun off-bike events going on (like our Motorcycle Bagger bike show). Also, if you get a chance, throw updates on our Facebook page or Harley Forum and let us back at the office know how Bike Week is going.
