Yep, you missed it; the first stop on the AMA Gypsy Tour was Daytona Beach Bike Week in March. For more than 70 years, this event has traditionally marked the start of the riding—and rally—season. Sure, it's Florida, but what Daytona lacks in scenery it makes up in activities: There's literally a dozen (if not more) bike shows including the world-famous Rat's Hole Custom Bike Show, demo rides, all kinds of music, and, at last count, five completely different types of (official) racing, including flat track, roadracing, supercross, drag racing, and vintage racing. For people watching (or copious amounts of jello shots, if that's your thing) Main Street is a must, but there's certainly other stuff to see. First held in 1937, the rally attracts 500,000 bikers, all celebrating the sunny climes and, for some, the first ride on their bike since winter ended. With balmy temps and nearby tourist attractions like the Kennedy Space Center, Silver Springs State Park, and all that Disney stuff, Daytona Bike Week draws riders from all over the country—and the world. It started life as a motorcycle beach race, and racing still dominates the calendar for this week, most of it happening at Daytona International Speedway.
