Tonight's the first night that I've been able to make it out. Expect more over the next few days. :)

Your B&W process really suits that scene.

I don't think anyone I know goes to Daytona, anymore. Hell, I don't think they go to any of those rallys anymore.

It really kind of sucks. Super commercial and watered down now. They've got extra cops on foot walking around just to arrest, not fine, but arrest people for flashing and doing burnouts.

Those things haven't been geared (pun) for real bikers in a long time. Capitalism at it's best.

Even the stupid off-color events like you'd expect are slowly dying out. The goddamn wet t shirt contest even had a damn sponsor. "Here, take a look at this livestock in skin tight shirts and we'll tell you about why you should drink Rockstar!"

Fuck.

Oh, you mean Daytona Harley Week?

More like "Daytona Drive your S2000 down Main Street Week."

Hardly. I know more people with sportbikes that have been there than people I know with Harleys that have been there.

Yeah, the numbers have increased quite a bit over the past few years.

Laughlin was the final true proper rally. Angels and the Mongols beef in 02 ruined that.

Man, I just wish people could get a little rowdy without getting arrested all over the place.

Rowdy I'm all for. Knife fights inside casinos is just........not well thought out. Especially with RICO being the ATF/FBI fad at the time.

Oh, and main forum is full of faggots complaining about the EXTREME ANGLES in these photos. :rofl:

In these??? There isn't a single patch in any of the photos. Those are the people that watch Gangland and feel they get it.

Its watered down to what it used to be? I stayed in Daytona last year and went with a few buddies. I've never been to anything like that before but had a great time! I did see a lot of cops, but i was also flashed a lot so i guess it evened out

Great pics though, brings back some nice memories!

Not one bike in any of those shots? I am dissapoint

Haha, I realized that. I don't know man- for the past 8 years that I've been doing this, it's become less about the bikes and more about the people for me. I might have taken 1 or 2 pics of a bike. Going back out tonight though.

the bike show in fall in wildwood, nj gets seriously out of hand. the cops just pray people keep order. it's illegal to have an open container in NJ, but everyone walks around boozing because cops just can't control it

BCR doesn't really happen anymore. Otherwise, yeah- I'd be out there.
REALLY? Shit, that sucks, but not really. I recall it being absolute chaos and crime central when I lived down that way in high school. Anyhoo, I like the bike week pics. I agree with you - it's def. about the people, not the bikes.

The B&W processing really makes these pictures! Great set!

well maybe time to change to something that people actually want to look it? :dunno:
