Daytona Bike Week 70th Edition. The Bike Shows, Exhibitions And Auctions

It is a popular request you make before each big rally. Where and when are the bike shows, exhibitions and auctions?

The listing after the jump includes some events between March 4th and 13th offering a custom bike exhibition lasting several days with a special day for bike competition. Please, recheck a couple of days before the event.

By the way, I think that the 70th Daytona Bike Week logo is better than ever. It was done by Brian Boesch from Itchy Illustration.

    This Bike Week seems to have more activities than the last 2 years. Let’s see.

    Bator auction in the past has always been a treat. and you have to love the City of Deland

    The last couple years vendors have been scarce out back but the bikes and parts on display for sale is well worth the ride.
    Across the street in the motorcycle parking lot is a show in itself with the various bikes riders arrive on. Ever changing as they come and go. Motorcycle enthusiast they are.

    I try to make the event every year.

    I was looking forward to Bikeweek this year but the Nazi’s of Georgia and their “Motorcycle Only Safety Checkpoints” have given me enough pause to cancel my reservations. 22 out of the last 26 years I’ve been able to travel without being singled out because of my mode of transportation. Oh well, people wanted CHANGE. How do they like it now?

    deadwood, if you care so little about your rights to let one chickenshit checkpoint scare you off then you don’t deserve them to begin with.

    The government slowly strips away the rights of the citizens when they don’t stand up and fight for them. Any American citizen who claims to care one bit about their freedom needs to stand up for it when it counts, not run away like a coward. I’ll be on my bike riding through Georgia to Daytona with no fear.

    Great info for those lucky enough to get to Daytona this year. Don’t forget another new event for Harley bagger riders at the Broken Spoke on Friday, March 11 for the Motorcycle Bagger show.

    Deadwood – I drive the last 40 miles of I95 from GA to Fl every day, seeing many bikes and bike trailers heading to Daytona this last week and have not seen any no checkpoints yet…

  7. 7 BadMonkeyMW Mar 3rd, 2011 at 8:20 am

    John Adams – From what I’ve read, the checkpoints are scheduled to run from March 4-13. Keep your eyes open starting this weekend and if you can post some info on what you see it would be greatly appreciated.

    ABATE of Georgia with the help of some over the road 18 wheeler drives are going to announce where the check points are as son as they start.
    Though 50,000 that was given to the State of Georgia from the Federal Goverment is a lot of money to you and I the state can run through it pretty fast so it is suspected there will not be checkpoints every day.
    If for some reason you do not want to go through one of these there are plenty of good state roads you can take.
    If you do get stopped at one of these checkpoints Please try to record what happens to you and share it with others.
    The following is from ABATE of Georgia

    As we get ready for Bike week and the impending check points A.B.A.T.E. wants to provide every resource to riders who live in or cross our great state. So here they are!

    SMARTPHONE users:

    email: if you roll up on a checkpoint

    ALL CELL PHONE users:

    TEXT us at (404) 981-5612 with the letters “CP” at the beginning of your text message followed by your location and name(so we can match it to your phone number to verify who you are). We will in turn log your message then post TO OUR FACEBOOK the location of your check point.

    CAMERA PHONE and CAMERA users:

    Capture any footage you can and (PICTURES AND VIDEO!) email us, we will provide you an upload location if your file is too large to email otherwise please send it to

    As we enable additional resources everyone we will post them to our facebook page.

    ABATE Of Georgia is updating on Facebook pretty regularly. I have spoken with them on the issue and sent letters to the Gov, Congressmen, and Senators. The only way to get their attention is hit them where it hurts,,MONEY. If I do not travel in Ga I will spend no money there. That is my point BadMonkey. I didn’t insult you and I’d like for you to speak to me that way in person, Talking crap on the net doesn’t make you BAD. BTW I’m willing to go GA if there is an organized protest there. Screw my vacation time. But it will do me nor anyone else any good if I go protest alone. Those who live in that state must defend it, residents can not depend on the occassional traveler to do it for them. All of us who ride need to do whatever we can to support ABATE of Georgia’s efforts to stop this blatant violation of our freedoms.

    Meet me in Daytona and if you ride your bike, not only will I not have anything bad to say about you, I’ll shake your hand and buy you a beer for standing up for your rights as an American.

    I plan to gas up in SC before I cross into GA and then not again until I’m in FL so I won’t be spending one penny in GA, yet I’ll still travel where I please without letting some pathetic gov’t checkpoint intimidate me. If you thought what I said was a personal insult maybe I just hit a little too close to home. And I’ll be glad to say that right to your face tough guy.

    Here is a link to the latest comment from the State of Georgia on the when, where, of the Checkpoints. Good deal BadmonkeyMW, maybe I will make it down. Several of my friends are leaving in the morning. And even though this infringement on our rights pisses me off, Daytona fever will likely end up getting the better of me. It usually does.

    Good information Deadwood. I knew we were basically on the same wavelength about this bullshit. I sincerely hope you do decide to ride down. The sad reality is that it is us, the citizens, against the government. That’s why it’s so important for us to stick together and stand up for our rights.
