    It was a shit show. More big wheel baggers than I ever needed to see in my life. No masks anywhere (except on some bartenders who were otherwise only wearing pasties and thongs) and all the bars were packed, so glad I have antibodies. I only saw like 6 or 7 bikes I thought were worth looking at out of 10's of thousands. We did a few days of riding around Florida and the riding was terrible. The "Loop" around Daytona was neat though. Almost everyone was wearing Trump and/or confederate flag gear, denying covid and thought Trump was still president. Fantastic people watching, and you can drink on the street.

    Sounds a lot to me like Myrtle Beach bike week but with more Florida man.

    Honestly an entertaining experience but I couldn't imagine living there.

    I did Myrtle Beach like 15 years ago, so obviously a different scenario, but it was way cooler. Probably 1/10th the size of Daytona though.

    Just watching shitty YouTube videos from this year's bike week.

    First off... no joke. What's with all the big wheel baggers? Second, I think only saw 5 people with masks on. Third, it looked kind of sad and depressing, but I've never been, so maybe that's the norm. Finally, thought the scantily dressed women would have been hotter for some reason. They all looked a little worn out.

    I'm calling bullshit on 5 masks. I was there for four days and I don't think I saw that many.

    On a side note, watched the last 7 laps of the 200. Great move by Paasche. Saw him at ovrp last year on a fs450, ridiculous what that kid was doing. Backing it in is an understatement. Destroyed a brand new tire in 10 minutes. Couldn't work on his bike to save his life, though. Lol

    I saw there were a few Grom gangs on the videos I was watching. Didn't see you though.
