Making sure that you’re prepared for the week by completing this checklist -- your key to enjoying a truly unique week of motorcycle action.
This one seems like a no-brainer, it just has to be on the list. No matter how near or far you’re coming from, bringing your own motorcycle is essential for truly experiencing the weekend. With free bike parking in the Midway and parking for your bike trailer available for just $25 in GEICO Park West, it’s easy to keep your bike nearby.
Riders bring some of the most unique motorcycles in the world to DAYTONA for the weekend. If you think your custom ride is something special, now's your chance to show it off by registering for the Full Throttle Bike Show on Saturday, October 15 to win trophies, prizes and more! Registration is at the Full Throttle booth in Harley-Davidson Thunder Alley. The awards presentation will be held at 3 p.m. on the Harley-Davidson Thunder Alley Stage.
DOT-Approved Helmet and Motorcycle License
Perhaps the most unique and anticipated activity of the weekend are the free demo rides provided. If you would like to ride newest models and exclusive rides from Harley-Davidson, Indian, Suzuki, Victory, and Yamaha, you’ll need to bring a valid motorcycle driver license and DOT-approved helmet.
Free car parking is provided in lots located just outside of Turn 4, making parking and transportation free and convenient for all guests. Make sure to download the Daytona International Speedway mobile app so you can put a pin on your car in order to find it quickly.
Prepare for the Outdoors
October in DAYTONA brings some great weather; however, with the Florida Sun overhead and most of your time spent outside exploring several entertainment options, you’ll want to have hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. If you need to grab some rest, be sure to do sun in the shade under the FPL Solar Pavilion. In addition, with so much to do and so much to see along the expansive Midway, a comfortable pair of shoes will be your best friend for this event.
Come ready to add to your collection of gear as you’ll have the opportunity browse items from over 100 vendors. Daytona’s Motorcycle Marketplace has the latest in apparel, parts, accessories, bikes and more! If you’re looking for suggestions on what to go home with, be sure to check out the Bikini Contest and Hot Leathers Fashion Show on Saturday, October 15 at 1 pm in Harley-Davidson Thunder Alley.
