I made my first bikeweek last year. It's about a 6 hr ride from my house. I couldn't get the wife to go so I went on thursday, and stayed till Saturday. It was pretty cool. Even in the Harley heartland I got quite a few comments on my Bonneville america.
If you want a Hotel, plan on $200.00 a night. I didn't book a room, I went hoping to find one and I did. The first place I stopped was Ormond by the Sea, about 10 miles north of Daytona. A crappy hotel by the interstate outside of the fun was $225.00 a day with a 3 day minimum.
In Daytona, after stopping at about 6 hotels found a condo for $200.00 on the beach.
If you haven't been to bikeweek I recomend going. Of course there a a billion harleys there, but most of the guys and girls I talked to rode in from all over, and were not posers.
None of the hotels would allow trailers to park in their lot. There was trailer parking at the airport :razz:
I will be going this year. I plan to go to Daytona for a day or 2 then head up the coast into the Carolinas for some real riding into Tennessee and back down to the house.
So let's go.
I really wouldn't mind if folks from west or north of me come down to here and stop for the night and then head out from here. I'm close to Destin and Panama City FL.
