The 74th annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicked off Friday, March 6th, and things got started with a bang! The Geico AMA EnduroCross Championship opened its 2015 season in a first-ever appearance during bike week. As if to make sure that none of the dirt-racing enthusiasts were wanting, the Daytona Supercross followed on Saturday. Harley riders had an event at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona, and Harley-Davidson set up a huge display of the 2015 models at the International Speedway. “Sons of Anarchy” fans were treated to a visit from Kim “Tig Trager” Coates on Saturday and Sunday. I know, some people love “Sons,” some people hate ’em and some love ’em but will never admit it! You are free to speculate as to which category I fall into.

Why it matters

Because it’s Daytona! And, it has a special place in my heart as it was my first big bike event back in 1995 while I was attending MMI in Orlando. I can still vividly remember walking around and taking it all in, wishing all the while that I had more time and money to spend there. Speaking of money, if you are there, be sure to visit the H-D Wounded Warrior Project tent to help support our troops. Then, swing by the Speedway and check out the H-D museum featuring Willie G’s 1983 FXDG Disc Glide Prototype.
