The 77tth Annual Daytona Bike Week winds down this Sunday hope those that have attended have a had a great time. AMERiders wishes you a safe and yet fun trip home. For those of you that didn’t make plans to go next year and have loads of fun with friends that you know that are going as well. Make a group trip out of it.
On your way home
Bike week winds down this Sunday and most people will be going home or waiting until most of the traffic has died down and leaving early next week. Whenever you leave if you wen and had fun please follow these simple rules to help you get home a bit safer.
- Helmets—know the law. Different states have different laws, so be aware of crossing state lines, if the next state has a helmet law stop and put on your helmet just before the state line. Florida law states A person over 21 years of age may operate or ride upon a motorcycle without wearing a helmet if they are covered by an insurance policy providing for at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle.
- Inspect your bike early. To avoid breakdowns or accidents that can ruin your vacation, give your bike a thorough inspection before Bike Week. Don’t forget to check your signals and lights, tire tread, air pressure, chain, oil and oil filter, and air filter. Also, give things a once over before you start to go back home as well.
- Group-ride safely. If you’ll be riding with a group of friends, remember that a motorcycle requires a full lane of space to operate safely, so don’t ride side-by-side in a lane. Either ride in a staggered formation, or single-file on narrow roads. Check your mirrors often to make sure the group is still together and that you have adequate space to maneuver in case of a hazard, and ensure that new riders are in the center of the pack, not trailing behind.
Second Annual Sons Of Speed Vintage Race March 17 At New Smyrna Speedway
One of the last fun things to see as Bike Week Winds Down this weekend is the Second Annual Sons Of Speed Vintage Race March 17 At New Smyrna Speedway.
Dozens of Racers to Run in the 2nd Annual Sons of Speed Vintage Race
Race Set For Daytona Bike Week 2018—VIP Tickets on Sale Now
New Smyrna Beach, FL (March 13, 2018) – VIP Tickets are on sale for the 2nd annual Sons of Speed race, set for Saturday, March 17th during world-famous Daytona Bike Week. The SOS race features will feature over twenty racers and will run in three classes on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna, Florida.
“Last year was great and this year we added a 45 class and a hot 61-inch class so there will be more heats, more racing, and more action,” said Billy Lane, renowned bike builder and founder of Sons of Speed. “People can buy VIP ticket packages online now.”
Inspired by early twentieth-century board-track racers, the Sons of Speed race hearkens back to a stripped down, wide-open approach to motorcycle riding. Held at New Smyrna Speedway’s half-mile, banked racetrack, the inaugural race will feature twenty riders in several different heats, and winners of the heats will advance to a championship round. Each racer will sit astride either a hand-built racing chassis holding pre-1925 1,000cc American V-Twin engines, a 45-inch engine and a hot 61-inch vintage race and most racers will customize their machines by fabricating handlebars, exhaust, fenders, foot pegs and fuel/oil tanks.

11- a.m. Gates Open
