Since I live in Orlando, Fl. I thought I’d mention the upcoming Daytona Beach and Orlando Biketoberfest for 2009. Actually the whole state seems to celebrate it now as a way to make some money off it! But most people associate it with Daytona Beach because of bike week. They have lots going on this year at Biketoberfest, and Orlando always sees some of the action as it’s only 60 miles away.
The 2009 Biketoberfest runs from October 15th to the 18th. The weather at that time should be perfect, if not a little hot for some up north. Temperatures should be around the 80’s at high noon and nights around the high 60’s to low 70’s. Perfect for me! The afternoon rains should be stopped by then, with maybe a few showers every other day or so but only for an hour or so.
There seems to be a lot planned for this year, at least that’s what I read in the official Biketoberfest website, click the link to check it out. All the normal shops and bars along main st. will be open of course, with all the biker booths that spring up overnight for events.
All the Harley motorcycle shops will have extra things going on; there’s a huge one in Orlando if you stay here. With hotels seeing a drop in occupancies this year you should have no trouble getting a room. Some stay in Orlando, others in Daytona Beach and the surrounding areas. If your looking for a good hotel rate, check out my sister site, Orlando Inside!
I’ve got lots of tips and so on in there, plus the hotels in the sidebars are always giving good deals on rates. So come on down to the Daytona Beach and Orlando Biketoberfest and have fun, maybe you’ll see me there with my camera taking shots of the babes! 😉
