We South of Ocala now. We will be going to New Smyrna on Friday.

Usually a walk down Main Street on Saturday completes our Bike Week trip.

Went in 1962,lots of beer, wiskers, watched the Honda 250cc RC 166 six cylinder blow all other open class class bikes in the weeds by three laps. 153 MPH not bad for a 250cc
Nothing has changed since.

I've been to Bike Week 3 times. Never even got close to the racetrack! I havene't been able to get there for about the past 5 years...maybe will again sometime.
Good party!!!

Where are you traveling from ? This event is in my back yard, I'm about 30 minutes west of the speedway. I would suggest you get here early and enjoy the area prior to the last weekend of bike week. The last weekend in the speedway area, main street area and a Harley dealership area ( US-1 & 95) are way to crowded.


Also - if your coming from cold country..........don't take up too much sun on your first day.......and have a bad sunburn ruin your whole week......lol !

speedway has its own flat track now. Sadly the racing scene fan base is like a ghosttown. Even for the 200

Any of you coming from the north traveling I-95 south, when you get to the under pass at highway 64 at Rocky Mount NC, look to your right, cause I'll be on the hill waving at you as your going by.
Last time I went to Daytona, by the speedway anyways, it wasnt even anything going on & it was a big rat race, to many people & to much traffic for me, but ya'll enjoy yourself.
