Bikers galore

Be aware of motorcycles, no matter where you drive.

March 8-17, 2019 is Bike Week in Daytona, Florida.  Motorcycles are everywhere, practically.  Don’t let them sneak up on your blind side, okay? 

Dubbed the “World’s Largest Motorcycle Event,” Bike Week is a 10-day Daytona Beach area event filled with high-octane street festivals, concerts, motorcycle races, bike shows, rallies, manufacturer showcases, live music daily at iconic venues like Destination Daytona, Iron Horse Saloon, Main Street Station, Full Moon Saloon, Boot Hill Saloon, Bank and Blues and much more! Established more than seven decades ago, over 500,000 motorcyclists make the annual pilgrimage to this Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event.  https://www.daytonabeach.com/event/daytona-bike-week-2019/38445/

My personal opinion – drive and enter with caution. 

This video clip reflects how bikes can come out of nowhere.

I rode a motorcycle years ago and enjoyed jumping the hills and riding the trails, but was always cautious maneuvering around traffic. I would venture to say most large bike owners, such as Harley Davidson riders, are more conservative than the sleek, high-energy bikes, which remind me of road rockets. Do you agree?

Blessings along the Way!

  1. My cousin is a Harley Man and he was the youngest in his group when he started! He has also owned other bikes, though. Harleys seem less scary to watch in traffic than the ones that zoom in and out of lanes. But all traffic makes me nervous. I’m definitely no Pinky Tuscadero! LOL!

  2. I rode a motorcycle in the late 70s-early 80s. It wasn’t a road-rocket, but it offered so much temptation to do something stupid. Fortunately, I never got hurt, but I think it was a good idea to part company. If anything goes wrong at those speeds, there’s very little chance for the rider.

    1. You’re so right. I remember riding over a slight oil spill on the road and the bike laid down. I ended up sliding on top of it while it was sliding on its side. Thankfully I only scraped my knee. I don’t think I would ride one today. Thanks Dan.
