Daytona Beach, Florida is easily recognized for the annual Daytona 500 Race, which takes place every February. However, the city is actually more widely popular and visited for the annual Bike Week which takes place starting today and runs through March 12, 2016.
Over 500,000 bikers and biking enthusiasts will be participating in the nine-day, which is also the biggest annual biker’s event in the world. Everything from high-flying Supercross racing and ATV Supercross Racing to flat track racing and amateur racing events will be taking place.
Considering the costs of many premium motorcycles from Confederate, Vyrus, NCR and Ecosse running from $100,000 to $300,000, biking is very much a high-end luxury activity. And many fashion designers from Ralph Lauren and True Religion to Balmain and Diesel offer jackets, jeans and trousers for motorcycle enthusiasts in their premium collections.
