Got up at 7AM this morning and rode with several friends to Daytona for Bike Week. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, 85 degress with a light breeze. First we stopped at the Cabbage Patch, then rode on to the Iron Horse Saloon. The number of bikes there was incredible, and yes I've been there for many past years. I was able to meet Mikey, Vinnie, and Cody from Orange County Choppers. Very nice people. Oh yeah, and now VERY RICH PEOPLE! They had one of their "stock" choppers there for sale with a price tag of $65,900. Took pictures of Mikey's bike, and the "Old School" bike. Also have pictures of all three gentlemen. Will post some pictures when I get them developed. Then we attempted to ride to Main Street Daytona at around 7 PM, but gave up after 1 1/2 hours of standstill traffic. Headed back to Orlando for a beautiful ride in short sleeves. It just don't get no better than this. This is definitely our riding season in Florida. :D

I was over three times this past week. I take Mason St / Seabreeze Causeway and follow the Halifax south along the river. When the traffic backs up cut over a street or two and park in front of the Auditorium. Today will be the worst traffic. 40,000 people are protesting not being able to go bare breasted to the beach. It is an act of civil disobedience. Might be worth the traffic jam.

Protest details
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Two women are planning to lead a topless protest Sunday in Daytona Beach in spite of a federal judge's refusal to stop police officers from arresting them.

Shirley Mason and Elizabeth Book intend to march with other shirtless women and men for a half-mile on the last day of Bike Week, the annual gathering of motorcycle aficionados, their attorney said Saturday.

"The court did not rule that they can't have the protest, or if anyone is right or wrong," Lawrence Walters said.

The women believe it is unfair that only men are allowed to go topless in public places. Their lawsuit claimed they should be allowed to protest topless under the free speech, freedom to assemble and equal protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution.
