Forums : General Discussions : Anyone Planning On Going to Daytona Bike Week? (1598 Views)
January 2, 2012JT - I`ve been five times and don`t plan to go anymore. It is a good time. At 69 I`m not interested in much except for real crazy schitt. I get some of it here during MB bike week.
January 2, 2012I hear you bro!! "Crazy schitt" is pretty cool as long as it does`nt follow you home!!
January 2, 2012I would like to come JT ,but I probably will not have the money. Too much crazy schitt going on in my life right now anyway and it has followed me home.
I came to Daytona in 2010, it was cold down there the whole week, and a cold ride back home. I enjoyed being there but I believe I will just hold out until Myrtle beach when it is a little warmer and it is not near as far. One thing I like about Daytona is you can find almost anything you need or ever wanted for you motorcycle, biggest swap meets I have ever seen.
January 2, 2012"biggest swap meets I have ever seen"
VT...Thats the main attraction this year....missed it last year and Chief tells me he will kick my ass if we dont hit that!!
January 2, 2012Went to "Daytona" back in `88 and have never been back. Lots of rain. Did have a good time being on the beach and seeing all the sights. Always said I wouldn`t return for that event. Been to "M.B." and had an even better time there, but said I wouldn`t go back there for that bike week either, only because of the changes in the laws to screw with the crowd. Still plan to make "Sturgis" in the next couple years. I want to have a few weeks for that trip.
I`m still coming down in May though. I want to hook up with you JT and throw back a cold one if we can manage it...
January 2, 2012Went to Sturgis twice...77 and 79...then HOG and the Evo showed up........aint been back since.
January 2, 2012I went to Sturgis 2009,2010,2011 and had a great time all three times. Did not get bored or feel like I had been there done that. There are enough sights and different things to do there and in that state to see that it would take alot of rallies to take in it all.
I only hit a small amount of things at Daytona also, beause it was to cold there in 2010 to get alot of riding in. For the ones that do show up this year , I hope you have great weather.
January 2, 2012Wrong part of the country for me. I`ve done Sturgis a few times but unless you are there for the drunken boob fest or suvenior T-shirts it isn`t much to do with bikes...although the metric crowd is well represented.
January 3, 2012Well Trip - you can go back to Sturgis now. EVO is over and you can ride your twin cam to it. Also it`s thirty years later and no one will recognize you. LMFAO ...........
January 3, 2012JT,
I do not know who might show up down there, I would like to come. But right now with the way things are in my life I am not making any plans that far ahead. Plus my heart would not be in it eitherm and if I am going to ride somewhere i would like to enjoy it and be glad that I am there and not worrying about things at home. I will get to meet you one of these days, I would not mind seeing Chief again either, see if you guys can make Myrtle Beach this year, hopefully the economy will be better and people will be able to afford to do more traveling than last year.
Trip , did you let McG use that big old Sturgis towel I gave you in 2010? That towel would have been big enough for him.
January 3, 2012VT...Im hoping for MB for sure! Im pretty sure that Sturgis is not going to happen unless I hit the lottery then we (Harley Zoners) are ALL going!!! Im with you on the part where your heart would not be in it...Been married 3 times myself!!! This one has lasted 30+ years. Should of hooked up with her first!!
