I left today at about noon for Daytona and got home tonight at about 9:00. I went with two friends and we had about a 90 minute ride to get there. It was way too crowded from my tastes. We went Destination Daytona and the Iron Horse - not even the busiest areas. Drank some beer, watched some people, ate some food, and bought a t-shirt. No pics so guess it didn't happen I liked the much smaller Leesburg, FL bikefest a lot better. It is a lot closer and a lot less crowded.

G'day,

The wife and I went to the speedway and saw the new Victory Octane and watched the Victory guys do burn outs on 2 Cross Countrys with 170 HP engines, it was a great show, but it got very crowded after about 11:30 am. so we left and did a demo ride on the new Spyder F3-T.

Probably going up Saturday. Usually hit Destination and the speedway. I stay off the beach, last time I spent 10 min to get thru a light so to heck with that. Leesburg seems to be getting bigger every year. The "small feel" is about gone. Trying to find any parking without paying is about impossible.

I'm with you Vinish, too many people in one place for me at these bike rallies. I usually take some time of to hit Laconia Bike Week but a few hours spent there is enough, I go for the riding around the area and that is what I spend my time doing.

I went down from St. Marys, GA yesterday. Got to Destination Daytona about 9:30 and spent about 2 hours there - had an early lunch and got the Night Shades Ellipse Trim for my Memphis Shades Batwing. Went to the speedway and spent about 2 hours there - got a set of Kuryakyn Heavy Industry Mirrors in Black. Went downtown and spent about 2 hours there - went to the Indian/Victory dealer, had an early dinner and got my T-shirt, patch, pin and shotglass. Even got a little more sun than I anticipated. 2 hour ride each way and 1 wonderful day - PRICELESS.
