This Saturday evening October 19th, 2014, the legendary Daytona Boot Hill Saloon is celebrating its 40th anniversary. For your viewing pleasure, I asked top photographer Bill Eadie to shoot this picture of Sports Illustrated’s Meghan Dover astride a 2014 Indian Chief Vintage in front of the famous bar.
The backstory is that Enzo Almeida, the local Daytona Indian dealer, was seeking a location to display the new line of Indians on Main Street for Biketoberfest attendees to enjoy. He contacted Indian Motorcycle Company to request their assistance for the promotion in conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of the oldest biker bar on Main Street, The Boot Hill Saloon.
As all good recipes are enhanced with a touch of sweetness, Sports Illustrated’s Meghan Dover became the promotion’s “meet and great” hostess. Meghan obviously caught the attendees’ eyes, but it was the new Indians that captured their hearts.
A simple story of a local business working together with the support of America oldest motorcycle company.
