Default Re: Going to Daytona?

The last time I went (I think it was Russells last win) I saw a guy unloading his bike from a trailer, with Orlando plates on it. My god, 50 miles is to far to ride, or there wasn't enough beer stops on the way. Either way that image put Bike week into serious perspective for me.The whole Daytona Experience on bike week just doesn't do it for me anymore. 20 years ago a blast, 15 years quite fun, but not so much anymore.

The races and demo rides was all I got into. I can spend money anywhere to get drunk.

With the formula honda class running the actual 200 I have less reason to go.

I tend to agree with you however 20 years ago we were young and 15 years ago we were kinda young.



Now we're just old!



I'm not much for stand around and get drunk events. I went to Laughling once about 8 yeras ago and that was enough for me.

I'd much rather go to the USGP than Daytona myself. Florida is a long way to go to see a bunch of OCC types standing around trying to be hard.

I've only been to afew planed events (not counting bike week). Some where better than others, but it was mostly bad vendors, lame day trips, and setting around drinking.

There was the Rider ralley in great gorge NJ, they had a day trip into little Italy in NYC. Great food. I enjoyed my 1000 mi trip to and from the ralley better, I picked the roads.

I think you need to drink at these events to make them entertaining. I've never been able to drink and ride - it always ruins the ride or the buzz.

"modispooge" would work, too.

I've been to one Bike Week (for a reason - we had a bike entered in the RHCS) and two Biketoberfests. I'm WAY over it.



I do miss the BBQ Turkey Legs, though.



Now I get my poser, RUB and squid fix twice a year right here at home at the ThunderBeach "rallies". The springtime one, coinciding with Spring Break, is really something to witness.
