Daytona Feelings

I realize that it is the 1st time I put in words my feelings about doing a big bike rally like Daytona Bike Week. Excitation (the atmosphere, noise, colors & smell), expectation (the bikes, parts, old and new friends), exhaustion (have you ever spent 10 hours a day every day under a tent as hot as a oven or as humid as a sponge talking to hundreds of people), apprehension (there is an end to all good thins and you know it’s over when bikers seem to ride in all the wrong directions outside Daytona). So, here I am again, realizing we are all 1 year older, checking first how all my friends are doing, reading again the calendar of events not to miss. Monday is the slowest day of the week, and I always take advantage of less traffic to make a tour of the vendor places from the Daytona Speedway to Beach Street, then from Main Street to Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach. I need to locate where everybody is (it changes every year) so that I can without hesitation zoom on a bike to anyone I need to see (cellular phone communications are still extremely bad during all week). Before and after hours I promise that I will try to spend some time updating you with new posts. Even if you are not there, I want you to feel like you participate to the 2007 edition. Later…

    Now yer making me envious!!! I’m unfortunatly not going to make it though I was trying to find the time to fly down for a couple of days for the biker breakfast. Tell Billy Sam’s sorry he couldn’t make it and says hi. I hope people will try to attend it (Biker Breakfast), and fell free to consider giving a little extra for a worthy cause. Stay safe and have fun. Sam. a.k.a. DJ CHOPPER GOD (music is my weapon) and the Garage Goons underground hot rod & motorcycle collective.

    You know DJ CHOPPER: I am sure the breakfast was great. I must also tell you that the Daytona Police are doing everything possible they can to run the Biker’s OFF. Not only do they point little things at you to measure the sound of your pipes so they can pull you over. They now are pulling you over for ape handlebars if they are above your eyes. Seems like John Law was busy looking to pull over bikers. Right when you think they can’t trump their ace, they come up with something new. To ride the final day is a life threatening thing. You look at all the temp tags, new boots that are not broken in, etc. You are better sitting it out. If one goes down you could end up in a pile. It is not like iy used to be. I do believe I have gone the last time.
