    Something is very misleading in Harley’s press release. It say “All activities moved to speedway” and then it contradicts itself by saying also at Mary BetuneMcCloud Blvd. so some are at speedway not all!

    At least the new bikes will be there. They sure as hell wern’t at Sturgis.

    Because I live in Mount Dora which is about an hour from Daytona I love this location.

    …move it all to the Speedway so it can be more like Disney (!!!) then, the developers can ‘doze down the rest of the old beach front for condos, Starbucks etc… etc… etc… Pretty transparent.
    What’s next? Double-decker buses, tour packages…… and FastPass + ? Later Jay

    That’s going to leave a huge hole on the river front.

    Daytona beach street was already tee shirts, sunglasses and sausages row. Now a place to avoid if you don’t want to spoil your Daytona bike week.

    I wonder who else is setting up on Beach Street?

    Personally I think they should go back to the convention center downtown. They always did it up right there. My personal opinion (yes I get one) is that since moving out of the convention center their Daytona display has been second rate. With that said, moving it to the racetrack may allow them to do a better job this year. Hope so.

    PS. The same for Sturgis. Be nice if they moved back to the Rapid City convention center and did it the old way…which was much better than what they have been doing on Lazelle Street in recent years.

    any chance this “special announcement” on 3/8 will be the new Road Glide?

    I always liked going down to the Indian dealer, Carl’s and see who was on the porch for dirt cheap draft and hot dogs.

    I doubt it will be a brand new model unveiling on March 8. A public unveiling is usually something already unveiled to dealers & media. And it’s not such an event. So, The Street?

    I agree with Bob if they are going to move it then move it to the Convention Center….

    They are trying to impress the people who count, i.e. the stockholders!
