Polling to see who is planning to ride down in March. Daytona Bike week starts with Supercross on March 9th and concludes with Daytona 200 on March 16th with other races both on and off the Speedway including Alligator Enduro on 03/14.
I can't take an entire week off so, I am thinking about riding down on Wednesday, 03/13 and riding back on Sunday, 03/17. Not concrete yet on anything.
Here's a link to last year event attended by few of us:
I will probably tent camp at the Speedway. Still alot of confusion by event staff on whether Orange Tent camping is free. Unlike last year in which Knybanjo and I had to pay an exorbitant fee to camp, I would highly recommend purchasing tix by mail so that you can simply ride into the tent camping area versus arguing with event staff who appeared to know nothing about free camping for bikes. Also, a printout from Daytona 200 event web site that clearly shows that tent camping is free appears to help.
Here is the one from 2012:
I will be riding my trusty V Strom 1K down as usual. I am open to any route although I do want to get into the Speedway before dark.
