Added a picture gallery for Daytona bike week 2009

bike week 2009 in Daytona beach

Well I finally got time to make another post on here! I managed to get up to Daytona beach for bike week on Thursday. It was not fun, at least not the trip up. I got stuck in two accidents on the way up on I-4, I knew I should have taken I-95. Then once there it was stop and go for hours!

I finally got close to main st. and got a place to park for 10 bucks. Then I walked down to main st. and started taking pictures. It was crowded, as it always is. I always like looking at the custom bikes and the custom paint jobs on them, damn they look nice. There was lots of hot babes serving beer and so on too.

They had about the same amount of booths that they have every year. Seems like almost half the places was food joints, they really were selling lots of food. It was late by the time I got there so I did not have much time to take good pictures before dark, but I got a few. So I made my very first bike week gallery in here.

There’s not much to it, but you can see some nice custom bikes and trikes in it. Sorry, no pictures of the hot babes, I’ll have to do that next year. So bike week looks like it was a success like last year and next year should be as good or better. Check out my bike week 2009 gallery here. I’ll try to start posting more regularly from now on!

Daytona Beach bike week 2009

bike week in daytona beach

Well everyone, in about one more week Daytona Beach will host bike week 2009. I live in Orlando, which is about 60 miles away from Daytona. I think last year there was over 600,000 bikers there. This year it’s hard to say how many will be there the way the economy is. It might be a little less busy, but not by much.

I think bikers who really like bike week in Daytona will find the money to go. I’ve been there a few times myself. So just what kind of bikes and bikers can you find there? Every kind you can think of. It’s not just die hard bikers that live on the road, although there will be plenty of them. You also get the more family type of biker.

There will be plenty of $70,000 touring motorcycles with sidecars with mom and the kid. Doctors, office guys and so on will be there with their bikes. Many make it a family event. There are plenty of things to see for the whole family. Of course there’s just as many events you want to go by yourself, like the ladies oil wrestling and wet t shirt contest! 😉
