Default 2013 Daytona Bike Week Planning

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:

http://www.carolinariders.com/forums...hlight=daytona

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.

Got back Sunday late afternoon. Weather was perfect, got little chilly at night but climbed to high 70's or low 80's every day. No rain!

VStrom 1K ran perfectly and made the 500 mile trip each way without any fuss. Ran like a clock.

Daytona was packed as usual during Bike Week. Speedway racing was excellent. Main Street was well just as expected.

Met up with lot of riders including ADVriders. Here are few photos with my commentaries.

I noticed many more chicks riding bikes now versus riding on the pillion.
I likey!





Of course, Main St., was open all night with many places to hit the well.







Of course, Main St., also attracts some strange riders?





WTF?



He called this a Redneck Redo Bike



Racing was Excellente!



HD Twins Series.



The announcer said that bikes were hitting the traps at 206mph. Too fast for my old camera.



Geico Camp Site: No Problemo.



Later,

Jon

Just polling to see if anyone is riding down this year.

I will probably ride down on Wednesday, 03/12 and come back either Saturday or Sunday. I do want to demo some of the new bikes. Not sure if KTM will be demoing new bikes but I am definitely interested in the 1190 Adventure.

I won't make it down in time for the Supercross which actually kicks off the Daytona BW races on 03/08.



Here's the flat track/short track schedule:

March 10: Half mile
Volusia County Speedway, Barberville, Fla.
AMA All-Star Event

March 10: Short Track
Daytona Flat Track, Daytona, Fla.

March 11: Half mile
Volusia County Speedway, Barberville, Fla.
AMA Holeshot Points/AMA Vintage National Dirt Track

March 12: Short Track
Volusia County Speedway, Barberville, Fla.
AMA Holeshot Points/AMA Vintage National Dirt Track
