Well I made it up to the Daytona beach bike week for 2012, which ends this Sunday. The day I went was beautiful, sunny and not too hot or cold. Now most bikers want to go down to Main Street during bike week.
That is where all the bars, food shacks, biker shops and wet T shirt contest are going on! It’s also where all the bikers drive up and down the road, letting everyone see all the different kinds of bikes everyone has.
But it’s also damn crowded, and as someone who goes to the local theme parks a lot, I have my fill of crowds! So my favorite place to go during bike week is at the Daytona speedway, where they have the Daytona 500 races.
Each year during bike week they turn the big empty spaces around the track into a huge custom bikes and biker shops fair. You can find anything you want to buy, from leather jackets to tattoos to hats.
Also big motorcycle sponsors like Honda and Harley put up giant tents and displays and sell the latest bikes and toys, from boats to trikes. In among all this are custom bike sellers.
These guys make very cool custom bikes with unique paint jobs and are real works of art. That is what I like to see the most, so that is where I spent most of my time.
I took a lot of pictures and videos and below is a nice bike week pictures gallery for you. You can see some very interesting custom bikes, trikes, 4 wheel bikes and other toys.
