Postcards From 2017 Daytona Bike Week (Part 2)

After a rainy Monday & Tuesday, forecast is for sunny days until the end of the week, but with very chilly temperatures. Mood remains excellent among vendors and participants, especially when thinking of those in the Northeast experiencing storm Stella and more than a foot of snow…The main bike shows and competitions start today Wednesday. Stay tuned for more visual reports from the Sunny State. (photos @ Horst Roesler, Manfred Graf and Regina Spring)

    So the travesty of custom motorcycles slammed bagger / ‘ donk ‘ thing is still in vogue . Oh well . So much for good taste making a comeback .

    Cyril. As always you make great reports. But make sure you avoid these custom baggers…

    Refreshing reading you from snowed New York State.

    from the looks of the pics in this blog post, it appears that Daytona Bike Week has become the land of people with shitty taste

    I think that Cyril’s reports faithfully show how 2017 looks. Not necessarily the way we wish things should be in the streets of Daytona.

    There was a time when thinking of not being there actually hurt.

    How did the big wheel look happen?
    Please don’t tell me it’s “ART”!

    Look up “Fugly” in the dictionary, there will be a picture of one of them there.

    Thanks for your coverage of Daytona Cyril. Those baggers make my bone stock, two tone road King look like a true custom.!!

    I’m not a fan of Big Wheel Baggers…
    BUT I gotta hand it to the guy who built that Purple one. Nice lines…!

    Some of the ugliest bikes ever seen, but that Indian FTR, if that’s what it is, is sweet.

    I love that white powdercoated engine. Too bad it probably won’t stay so pristine after being run a few thousand miles.

    Freakshow Baggers Suck!

    Not a fan of baggers, big wheel or small, but that Kodlin bike has some of the craziest lines I have ever seen and I kinda like it. Oh the humanity!
