American Flat Track’s DAYTONA TT to Be Held Inside Daytona International Speedway

Here is a tidbit that some may or may not know… Taken straight from the Daytona Bike Week 2017 Website so you can read the whole article here

Daytona Bike Week 2017An exciting change is happening to one of Daytona International Speedway’s (DIS) most popular Bike Week events. Daytona International Speedway is proud to announce that American Flat Track will debut its 2017 season inside the “World Center of Racing” on a one-of-a-kind .6-mile TT course. The DAYTONA TT, scheduled on the evening of Thursday, March 16, will feature powerful, twin-cylinder motorcycles in the AFT Twins class, while spirited single-cylinder machines will battle it out in AFT Singles. With a racing schedule that includes the DAYTONA Supercross By Honda, Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross, the all-new DAYTONA TT and the famed DAYTONA 200, DIS will play host to the ultimate festival of motorcycle racing in 2017.

American Flat Track has been re-envisioned and the DAYTONA TT marks the dawning of a new era for America’s most historic form of motorcycle racing. The championship features the broadest spectrum of brands competing in any form of motorcycle sport and will serve as a battleground for the great American war between Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles in 2017. The big factories will be competing head-to-head on the racetrack for the first time since the 1950s, and the battle of the brands will begin at Daytona.

“Daytona is the spiritual home of motorcycle racing and we are delighted to be bringing the intensity of Flat Track racing and the spectacle of a TT to complete the show,” said Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “2017 marks the start of a new golden era for our sport and we are excited for our legions of fans.”

Gear up, Strap in and Jump On! A Road Trip Is in Order!

Gear up your bike, Strap into your favorite protective gear and Jump On your bike! It’s warm and a Road Trip Is in Order! At, we say let’s take a ride to somewhere fun, and spectacular!  Vacations and Road Trips are always fun, but when you hop on a motorcycle it just amps up the fun dial even more. We decided since we recently showed you new bikes that are coming out like the Harley-Davidson 2016 Models, the Indian Springfield, and Indian Darkhorse plus we’ve given you tips on how to gear up for riding this summer, as well as Packing for Road Trips. We would give you some ideas on where to go for your vacations on your motorcycle this summer.

Road Trip
Harley-Davidson Museum

So the first place we would like to suggest is the birthplace of Harley-Davidson itself Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Lots of things to see and do that a motorcycle enthusiast will love. Such as the Harley-Davidson Museum which is newly opened. During the summer, it is very easy to find things to do along the lake and the city has many cultural events to attend as well. Milwaukee is also known for the world-famous Milwaukee Mile Speedway where the annual Milwaukee Rally is held late July.

Road Trip
Winter Park Colorado

Another great place to go take your Road Trip is Colorado.  Located in Colorado’s Northern Rockies, Winter Park is a popular winter destination drawing visitors to its large ski hill, however, not only is Winter Park a popular winter destination, but it also draws visitors during the summer with its Zephyr Mountain Express Chairlift. Which  takes sightseers and mountain bikers to the summit of Winter Park Mountain, for a stunning view of the Continental Divide. Winter Park is also known for the Salute to American Veterans Rally, formerly held in Cripple Creek. A POW/MIA rally, the Salute to American Veterans Rally is also one of the best Colorado motorcycle rallies. Held in August, the ride to the new home of the POW/MIA Salute in Winter Park takes you and your bike through the beautiful Colorado Rockies, culminating with a huge POW/MIA parade, a POW/MIA Recognition Ride, motorcycle rodeo, a ride in bike show, live music, poker run, wet T-shirt contest, and a military fighter plane flyover.

Road Trip
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Of course,there is also the Black Hills of South Dakota for Sturgis one of the world’s oldest, largest and greatest rallies, held each year in August. This year it is being held from the 8th to the 14th for its 76th annual rally. Besides the unique combination of unique scenery of surrounding granite peaks and creek-carved canyons, with outstanding touring roads ribboning out across the landscape, and adding in the music and non-stop party action on famous Sturgis Main Street. Sturgis offers a dream Road Trip or vacation for any biker.

Road Trip

These are just a few of the great places that you can go when taking a Road Trip this summer. There is also the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Ohio, and of course don’t forget HISTORIC ROUTE 66 also as it can be an experience of a lifetime for travelers, adventurers, desperados and dreamers. Officially Route 66 no longer exists, however, a great deal of it remains to be driven and enjoyed.

We hope this gives you some idea of a few places to ride this summer. There are more to be found all over the net, and by even asking some of your brothers and sisters of some wonderful, exciting, and beautiful places they may have ridden. Don’t hesitate to ask around when planning a trip you never know what you may find.

Road TripAMERiders would like to wish all our brothers and sisters a safe and happy Memorial Day. Please remember that this weekend is not about BBQ’s and long rides. It is about remembering those that gave their lives in service to our country.



And as always….
