We just returned from riding to Daytona for Bike Week. What a great trip! Met up with Del Longquist and had a great visit! What an inspiration! He autographed our copy of his book. Also visited with Dave and Ruth Ann Hannigan. Really enjoyed seeing them again and catching up. They are introducing a new reverse trike for the GL 1800. Looked impressive. Rode all over the area visiting Longwood and St. Augustine. First week of bike week not a good time to visit there. Traffic was crazy. We camped at Nova Campground on Herbert Rd. in Port Orange. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for comfortable, tree filled campground. They also have small and medium size cabins for rent and are located within easy reach of all the attractions. Mountain Man Art did some beautiful work on the sidecar matching the "dream catcher" design on my bike. It was a Christmas gift from my wife and commemorates our 50th W A. The ride down and back was long and the weather beautiful for both the trip and the stay in Daytona. Even got our dog to ride in the sidecar. That's always a hit with everyone when she's wearing her Doggles! "Sidecar delay time "set in quickly. Only saw 5 other sidecars including 3 Velorex's and 2 Harley classics. All in all a great trip and we look forward to doing it again next yr. "Good Lord willing and the Creeks don't rise!" Looking forward to seeing some of you at the NC sidecar rally in April. Ride safe and ride hard!
