Daytona Bike Week

I know it's early, but we decided to ride to Daytona for Bike Week in March. We're riding south to Key West from there for our 30th wedding anniversary.

Anyone have plans to go?

Anyone know a good hotel or other lodging option in the middle of the mess?


Any insight appreciated.

Me and a riding buddy just made this trip last week. We left upstate SC very early Tuesday morning and found ourselves in Daytona for lunch. After visiting Bruce Rossmeyer's HD and getting some BBQ from the place just across the parking lot, we headed to Key West.

On recommendation from someone on this forum, we got rooms at the Oceanbreeze Inn. Rooms were $139/night (off season rate). The Inn is located at the southern end of the island 2 blocks off of Duval. For the price, I would definitely stay there again.

I'll probably ride over; I live about 3 hours away.

Start looking now for a room in Daytona. I have stayed at the Suburban Extended Stay (has kitchenettes) and the Super 8. Both are cheap rooms at "event" prices.

2017 FLTRXS, Givi V56 Topcase, Windvest 10", National Cycle Hand Deflectors, Rapid Transit Tank Bag. My last bike was 2014 Triumph Trophy SE. Before that: 2010 FLTRX.

We'll be there. We stay at the KOA in Port Orange which is about 5 miles from the Speedway.

Awesome. What days will y'all be there? We need to meet up. I burned some Hilton points and got a room Mon-Wed at the Hampton in near the speedway.

Just talked to the wife about her opinion on this very trip wednesday. Including going on to Key West. Now that would be a great early spring trip!
