    Time to dig out the fringed chaps. I may ride over for one day, got friends who are camping but I'm usually ready to head home by the end of the day.

    Lived in Florida and went to my first Bike Week in 1968. Wasn't as crazy back then. Last one was 1998 then we moved to Kansas. Its was always fun parking a few blocks away and walking to Main Street. Used to enjoy the shows at the Armory and Hotel on A1A. Really nothing like it used to be. My first time in Daytona Beach was 1957 when my mother and I moved to Eau Gallie. It was paradise back then. Eau Gallie was 712 people and Melbourne was 3700.

    I am heading over Friday night. Then I will be over there next week Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I usually hang out at the BMW dealer, then walk over to Main Street and watch all the hooligans! I may ride MainStreet once or twice, then stick on A1 a and check out the sites. I have been going the last few years, But I am an early bird because it gets too crazy after 10 PM!

    Small world, my parents moved to Cocoa Beach in 1958 and I came along a few years later. Wonderful place to grow up.

    I enjoy Bikeweek its like a keg party with motorcycles:D

    I'm living in Jacksonville now, about 80 miles North of Daytona. I will ride down for a day (probably on the 13th). I ride down A1A along the ocean which is a nice ride if the weather is good. At Daytona Beach, I will ride down Main Street and across the bridge over to Beach Street where a bunch of the vendors have there stuff set up. Also Indian has a store there so will go and check out the new Indians. After that, I might ride out to the speedway or over to Ormond Beach and Destination Daytona. Maybe I'll do both, depends on the weather and how I feel. About 6 pm or so I will get on I-95, put the hammer down and 80mph and an hour or so later I'll be home for dinner.
