Fans from all over the country are gearing up for the biggest biker bash of them all this coming March: Daytona Bike Week! Every year, bikers gather together for a solid week of fun and camaraderie. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the motorcycling extravaganza, and Harley-Davidson will be the official motorcycle sponsor during the 2016 festivities.
Here at Manchester Harley-Davidson, we could use a little glimpse of spring as we shovel out our driveways for what seems like the hundredth time this winter. That’s why we’re excited by Harley-Davidson’s recent reveal of its plans for the 73rd Annual Daytona Bike Week taking place in Daytona, Fla., in just a few weeks!
An ongoing tradition since 1937, the annual Bike Week now sees hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world flock to Daytona each spring. Naturally, Harley-Davidson has been a big part of Bike Week’s history, and it’s planning to host a comprehensive list of displays and activities once again in 2014. And as a recent release from Harley says, all of Harley’s events will take place at a single display area this year, rather than splitting up between Beach Street and Daytona International Speedway as in years past.
“We’re consolidating into one action-packed display at the Speedway to make it easier for our fans to experience everything we have in one easy-to-access location,” said Paul James, Harley-Davidson’s director of consumer events.
The events that James speaks of should interest Harley lovers of every kind. At Daytona Bike Week, Harley will display 2014-model-year motorcycles, clothes and apparel, H-D1 customization and more. Harley-Davidson will offer demo rides for 2014-model-year bikes, plus the new Project RUSHMORE touring models, all week long. And they’ll also host The Harley-Davidson Ride-In Custom Bike Show on March 12, with donations being directed to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Harley is also teasing a special announcement and “electrifying” display on March 8, and that’s enough to carry those of us at our Harley dealership in Manchester through the end of winter.
