Treasure Island, Florida
'06 XLC 1200 Sportster Custom
This was Jim's fourth trip to Bike Week and he somehow convinced his daughter, Jaime, to give the rally a try this year. According to Jaime, a newbie to biker rallies, she says the people are wonderful and she'll definitely be back! Jim and Jaime came especially for the flat track races at the Daytona International Speedway.
'00 Road King
Mark has been riding for more than 35 years and is no stranger to Florida. He's been coming to Bike Week and Biketoberfest for so many years he can't remember. He went to American Motorcycle Institute and received his degree in motorcycle repair (now Wyotech-Daytona) and now wrenches in his spare time at home on old choppers and the like.
'08 Street Glide
This is Joey's first trip to Bike Week and he put more than 500 miles on his Street Glide's odometer to get there. Joey's been riding for more than 17 years and he wanted to test his limits by riding his bagger through the many different elements: rain, snow, heat, cold, etc., and accomplished that very feat. When we caught up with Joey, he'd already trekked to all of the Bike Week hot spots and says his favorites are Main Street for its craziness, and Rossmeyer's Destination Daytona for all the cool products and bikes on hand.
'08 Screamin' Eagle Ultra Classic Electra Glide
Brian took the scenic route to Bike Week this year, which took about four hours to get to Daytona Beach, but was well worth it for him because it meant more seat time on his cushy CVO Harley. Brian's been coming to Bike Week for more than 30 years so there was no hurry to get there. His favorite part of Bike Week is just checking out the different bikes at various locales, and basically just to see what everyone is riding. Oh, and he always makes a point to check out the Hooters girls wherever they may be found.
Fayetteville, North Carolina
'04 Iron Horse
Antonio's been riding since he was 14 years old, and has been to 25 different Bike Week events in his life. It took him seven hours to get to Bike Week from Fayetteville, which he says he loves riding to on the Iron Horse. He loves to check out the different vendors at Beach Street, the Speedway, and Rossmeyer's Destination Daytona, because he's always looking for ideas on how to hook up his bike.
Winter Park, Florida
Dave took the day to ride the almost 60 miles to Daytona to check out the racing scene at the Speedway. He loves the drag races, the flat track jockeys, and old vintage bikes, which is obvious since he rode his '59 Panhead to the rally. He's been coming to Bike Week and Biketoberfest every year since 1992 and says he'll continue to do so for many more years to come.
