    I like Daytona OK, not just my favorite rally. I think it’s somewhat overrated and the hotel prices are just robbery. Sure living in Florida makes it different for me. Last 2 times I basically went there just for lunch and took off to ride around northern Florida. ..

    I like Butt fuk! You are right though, 400 a night for a 100 room kind of spoils it for me. (Not the butt fuk part)

    Holy Moly $400 a night. I'm at $150/night, King bed, ocean front with kitchen and that's more than the usual place I stay at because the regular condo had water damage.

    Where you stay? Last I looked on the beach close to Main Street, expensive spot allright. But figured if I want to go to bar to have a beer or listen some music say on Bank I wouldn’t need to ride....

    Curious, the prices have gone down since I last looked

    I loved boozin 'n cruzin but that was a looong time ago. Now they're too serious about putting you in the cooler and taking all your shit. I do my drinking at the end of the day. The only folks that get away with DUI are cops and judges.

    Maybe one year I can trailer it to Texas, then we can do like you said Eric, two 600 mile days and were there! Now that would be a cool road trip someday!

    I don't know about the "only when you stop" theory. John and I and a few more were riding this summer and it was 102 degrees and didn't seem to matter whether we were moving or not it was still hot.
