Why don't you do the demo test ride first in your area or close by to see if you like it first, then BUY one if you like it here so you can put the rental costs toward the bike?
Driving one at Daytona isn't the same. The crowds, traffic, stop and go, you'll never get the true idea and feel of the bike.
