Ok, I live here and will be riding around Friday Saturday and Sunday.
Lots to do and see!

Lets try to pick a place, Say Saturday AM, maybe Destination Daytona at US1 and 95 or perhaps Beach St in Daytona so that we can shake hands and say HI in person.
:sporty:

Destination Daytona sounds fine. Let me know the time and we'll be there. We are riding to Fort Myers Beach and Key West first, but we will be in Daytona Thurs, Fri, and Sat. We have over 2000 miles planned.

I live close by. But Im not sure if the bike will be road worthy just yet. We usually meet at the Hess station.

I cant think of where a Hess station is around there. But here are the coordinates if you want to plug them into your GPS or google maps 29.339536,-81.1335 of Destination Daytona on the North side of Ormond.

Its where a lot of riders meet up and hang out. We've even did some stunts with cops being there once so its a very relaxed place unlike a lot of the other places. Its off of International and the interstate.

I'm local and if anyone wants to meet and ride down to main st station wed night for a "start of biketoberfest party, let me know. Also thursday is the old school chopper show at willies tropical tattoo, if anyone wants ride up.

I think, and just tossing it out, a cool place to meet would be on US1 in south daytona near millers custom parts and the skate park. the firehouse subs place and the parking lot next to firehouse would kinda awesome to get everyone together. time tba?

I'll be there Fri, Sat and Sun. I would like to stay the night somewhere instead of riding back to Jax at night. If anyone wants to throw down on a hotel or has a party pad...

Ok, here is my solid plans. Friday I am going to take the wife on the bike to Destination Daytona and later on to either Beach St or down to New Smyrna Beach to Pub44. Saturday I am talking my 9yr old to Beach st and or Main st.
So Friday if you see a guy wearing a black t-shirt that reads Its not illegal unless you get caught well thats me. Lets see if we can nail a time and place to meet at.

:yikes Run over? Like by a car? That's terrible.

Just to point out, you are near the the biggest dealership in the country in Daytona. Lots of deals from what i've heard, just in case the bikes are totaled. Lemons into Lemonade and all that.

I was on my Ness Vision and Gary was on his wideglide. The Vision was completely ran over. It's bad! The Harley was indirectly hit by my bike. His don't look too bad. I'm upset,
Yet thankful.

Naw, he was old. I felt sorry for him. Tore his car up bad too. He was almost in tears. It was raining so hard that he couldn't see us.

Not to sound mean but that is typical for FL drivers. So many should not have there DL anymore but still do.
Think about it, you were on the shoulder of highway and he still managed to hit you. If conditions are that bad, then he should have slowed down, pulled off, or gotten off the highway.
I have always said its grandma or grandpa that will get you... If not a text'r (added that bit this last couple of years ago)

See you in Daytona in a few day. Weather is showing to be high 60's to low 80's with little to no chance of rain!

Holy Shit is right!
You were so close to being killed or seriously injured, it isn't even funny.
As bad as it was consider yourself lucky.

I will make a suggestion though...Don't plan any trips to Key West anymore...you seem to have some kind of weird Juju going on with those Key West trips. :doh

Bummer about the accident but at least you both live to ride again.

Both of my bikes are down at the moment but I'll be at the swap meet here most of the week. Just look for the big ugly guy with the beard....

I'll be swinging through the swap meet for a while too. Is Saturday morning at destination a good time and place for everyone to meet up?

Just an update. I got my Vision back last week. $15,000 damage to it and Gary is getting his back next week. Gary's had $5,500 damage. My bike looks and rides as good as ever. I took it on a toy run Sunday and it felt GREAT!
