Planning for warmer weather
After a long and cold winter spent indoors anyone who has been hibernating through the frosty season can suffer a common case of “cabin fever,” longing for those warmer weather and carefree summer days ahead. And with the first signs of temperatures reaching into the riding-tolerant 50 degree mark, motorcyclists are especially prone to being lured out of their caves and dusting off their prized bikes to take to the road and feel the wind on their face.
Daytona Bike Week
No matter where your cold calendar falls, it’s never too early to begin planning a spring motorcycle road trip to a warm-weather destination like Daytona’s Bike Week, which takes place March 2-11, 2007. This 10-day festival throughout Daytona Beach and Volusia County, Florida, draws hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts to take in hundreds of events annually. Daytona’s Bike Week has a flavor all its own where you can choose to take a ride on The Loop, check out the vendors, observe demo rides by Victory, H-D, Buell, and BMW, or get your bike blessed at the “Blessing of the Bikes.” There’s also the annual Harley-Davidson Parade where you’ll surely find out that Harley-Davidson is still King bike at Daytona. No matter where your tour itinerary guides you and your bike, the best way to enjoy the Daytona rally is by taking in a little bit of everything – from the races and displays to the bikes and their bikers. You won’t be disappointed.
The AspenCash Motorcycle Rally held May 17-20 in Ruidoso, New Mexico is another warm weather destination where spring comes early to the southern Rockies. A great way to pull the covers off your cabin fever in anticipation of summer’s official start, the AspenCash Motorcycle Rally offers all the bells and whistles for cycle enthusiasts including a $10,000 Poker Run, a large four-day trade show with 33,000 square feet of vendors, and multiple cash prizes. An annual event that boasts a four-day vendor show offering everything a biker can dream of from riding leathers to heated handgrips to custom accessories, the Aspen Cash Motorcycle Rally has become a regular stop on the ever-growing rally circuit. AspenCash’s $10,000 poker run is always great fun with beautiful riding scenery through winding roads of Lincoln County that follow the same trails that Billy the Kid rode a century ago. Lonely stretches of desert asphalt will lead riders to historic ghost towns and villages that at the day’s end come alive with biker friendly eateries, pubs and saloons. The night becomes a party with live music and good friends all enjoying the celebration of spring in Ruidoso and the start of another riding season.
