I'm about 3 1/2 hours from Daytona Beach, I ride an old Goldwing...I'm a curious person by nature...I don't have any tatoos...and I don't wear a do-rag.. I've been thinking about making the trip to Daytona in February...Since I'm not a "Harley Guy", will it be worth my while?? Please keep in mind, I don't need much of an excuse to take a trip...any lodging and entertainment recommendations would be greatly appreciated...as well as anyone that would like to join me.

Best regards,

Chester Gunn/Chula, GA

I haven't been myself. I've heard it's the loony bin all week long. I would like to go and see for myself.

If you've never been, while in the area try to take the tour at the Space Center. It's well worth the money.

If I remember correctly, didn't the "Village People" have a Harley rider??? I"m not sure that he would appreciate those of the opposite sex??

i try to make the 8 + hour trip down to laughlin in the spring for the samereason:) and Ilike to check out also what the vendors have for sale and listen to the tunes. You normally can test ride other makes of motorcycles at these large events. The down side is usually the traffic, loud pipes, expensive lodging and a few idiots. Go for it . if you dont you usually wish you had. Ive put more miles on a harley in my earlier years than probablymost harley riders out there today. It doesnt make any differance to me what ya ride but odds are you will see quite a few harleys and other bikes on trailers LOL. If i lived closer id ride along. Take your earplugs.JB

chester, i usually take several days off for bikeweek. i'm only 45 minutes away.i'd be happy to be your guide around the area.
bike week is a good chance to see motorcycles you've only read about. Demo ride bikes you've been interested in. and meet some really cool(and really freaky) people.

Parking for bikes is no problem just about anywhere..there are only 5000 restaurants in daytona...not all have lines...it is a fun experience and worth the trip....I never drink and get back to the ranch before it gets too late.....great vendors and you can demo every bike every major manufacturer makes...yes..lots of freaky people and bikes....

I'm with you Redeye,,,,,,,,,,,, I don't like crouds. I'm sure it's a cool experience, but I feel I can spend my money in a more enjoyable way. Like riding out west.

My niece's husband goes to Daytonaevey year. He trailers 8-12 bikes for a sum and that helps pay for his trip. He is always asking me to go. I almost went for it, then decided to see the Rockies. I've seen Florida before,,, but I wanna see a LOT more of the west. But I guess thats just me.:)
