Anyone going to bike week this year? A couple of buddies and I are going for the first time this year. We are getting excited. What should i expect from the laws down there, I hear they ticket for petty things. Does anyone know if they still have the side mounted plate law there? I would appreciate any input. Thanks, JD

As far as I know, vertically-mounted plates are still illegal down here. Also, they must be "centrally" mounted, that is, in the rear center of the bike, and 18" above the ground. So a custom plate mounted forward of the back edge of the rear tire is illegal here. Fine for first violation is $1000 +.
that means anyone with a Nightster or an Iron 883 is gonna pay. those are sidemount from the factory. hmmmm.

Side mounted plate law was repealed by the gov. ABATE Of Florida, Inc. - Fighting for Bikers Rights If you don't have baffels, don't gun or rev the engine in town or around cops. Speeding tickets are 1000 if exceeding 20MPH over the speed limit (car or bike) but can usually be beaten with an attorney for $150 plus court costs.

It is a great time and there is so much more going on than just Daytona. If you want my phone number let me know and we can meet up for a fun time.

By the way, the best time may be in Deland FL on the first day.

MrWick, good to hear from you, are you and MeanGene comin over for a day? Let me know.

lol, hey I got the name right anyway. Didn't I?

Deland Bike Rally - Bikeweek 09 this is actually the 2010 site.

It is my adult opinion that this is the best kickoff of Bike Week.

EJ, maybe you did get it right. We were suppose to meet at Biketoberfest, but missed each other. I plan on going over on Sunday and Monday of Bike Week. It would be nice to meet up with some BTK forum members.

That campground looks like alot of fun, we might just have to rethink where we are going to stay. their rates are on par with the camp site we were thinking of staying at.
