Ready to Ride: Daytona Bike Week

Over the past few years, AMSOIL has associated itself with three major bike weeks: Daytona, Sturgis and Laconia. On Friday, the first of those three gets underway in Datyona Beach.

The beauty about Daytona is the timing. For those of us who live and ride in the Northern United States, we are always looking for a break from the doldrums of what has become a long winter and Daytona Bike Week offers up a little bit of something for everyone.

You can head over to Destination Daytona or cruise Beach Street. If racing is your elixir, then there is nothing greater than the famed Daytona International Speedway. The world's top Supercross stars will race there on March 5, including Team AMSOIL riders Kevin Windham and Justin Barcia. Or you can wait a week for the AMA Pro Road Racing series to begin its season at the Speedway. There you will be able to witness the first race for Erik Buell Racing with Geoff May on top of the #99 AMSOIL/EBR bike. Larry Pegram will challenge May in the AMA Superbike series again this year, riding a BMW for Foremost Insurance/AMSOIL.

But the rally is focused around riding. With plenty of scenic highways and byways, one can ride to countless spots in and around Daytona Beach. Through it all, AMSOIL will be widely recognizable and available for the ten day event. Check in on us at Beach Street. Or Destination Daytona. Or the Daytona International Speedway.

Either way, enjoy the warmer weather and safe riding.

Until then, we'll see you at the races.
