For hundreds of thousands of bikers tucked away in their frigid shops or garages all winter long, Daytona Beach Bike Week offers that glimmer of hope that riding season is inching closer and Jack Frost is about to go back to his hole—or wherever else it is he goes.
Well, the time has come and Bike Week is officially underway. Every year, we trek to the Florida shores to gain some perspective into what folks from different parts of the country have been tinkering away on during the off-season. It’s pretty cool to see the imagination put into some of these custom creations. Plus, builders tend to always wait to reveal their new creations until Bike Week. Whether it’s a new Harley Road Glide that just had the paintwork done, or a new Harley Softail with some trick parts that are yet to be released, or maybe an old FXR or Dyna project that just never goes out of style, there’s a solid mix of rad—and not so rad—bikes to check out.
Here’s a small glimpse into the 2018 Daytona Beach Bike Week rally as we’re still grinding away trying to find the best of the best to bring to you fine folks in Hot Bike land. Stay tuned for additional photo galleries from Bike Week!
