I live 75 miles south of Daytona, I go for both bike week and biktoberfest. Have to, my bosses make me go. I also go to the rest of the state as well because bike week has spilled over to Orlando, Cocoa Beach, Keywest, and all points in between. It's not all about Daytona anymore!
Been riding solo for the last 8 days here in SoCal. I've logged over 850 miles in 4 rides. This is a beautiful place! Riding in winter nonetheless! When I stop for gas or a quick snack, someone will always talk to me. Usually about bikes. The people here are friendly and I havent met one fellow rider that had an attitude. I'm from back east, what a difference. Hell, even the CHP are cool. Can't wait to meet up with some people to share the riding.
