I finally got to experience Bike Week in Daytona Florida. 2006 was the 65th annual Bike Week. If you are a bike enthusiast, this is THE event! 500,000 bikers converge on Daytona every spring for a week of see-and-be-seen biking and partying.

There are races and events all week long at Daytona International Speedway and local events happening all over town. Most of the local bars go all out to welcome the bikers. There are bike shows around town including the boardwalk by the beach, bike giveaways, stunt shows, cole slaw wrestling, manufacturer displays with demo rides, concerts, bike flea markets, organized rides, and parties everywhere.

The main focus and gathering place is Main Street which is blocked off to bike traffic only during Bike Week. Bikers cruise Main Street and partake of the numerous biker bars along the route.

There are dozens of biker bars that go all-out to provide entertainment for week week including Wise Guys, Broken Spoke Saloon, Dirty Harry's, Froggy's, Full Moon Saloon, Iron Horse Saloon, Boot Hill, Hang Dawg, and Sopotnick's Cabbage Patch with it's famous cole slaw wrestling.

Check out the Official Daytona Bike Week web page here.
