The Daytona Harley Davidson Drill Team began in May of 1994. The members of the drill team were chosen for their desire to promote safe motorcycling, to promote rider skills as well as good will for the sponsoring dealer, Daytona Harley Davidson. The drill members have more than a total of 300 years of riding experience. A number of them have over 50 years by themselves. Member ages range from 38 to 72 and they all ride. All but 1 are proud grandparents. The Drill team features Harley Davidson motorcycles from 1997 to 2008 dresser models, owned and maintained by each individual member. The drill consists of over 52 moves with an X in the middle of the course, no radios are used. The choreographing of all the moves is a team effort. These moves are precisely executed by riders whose skills make these 900+ pound machines look like child’s play. The drill team makes itself available for functions such as charity runs, nursing homes and convalescent facilities, Parades, conferences,rallys or conventions both in the motorcycle community as well as the general population. It is our hope that this positive and safe image of motorcycles will provide an alternative picture for those not previously familiar with the sport of motorcycling. The Drill teams major one project is the Boggy Creek Camp. All of our efforts go to this worth while Camp
BIKES To The Beach
April 25-28, 2013
As many of you already know, Ocean City Maryland is a seasonal hot spot that attracts 100's of thousands of guests each year-the bulk of visitors between the months of June and August. Throughout the years with many great efforts from the city, hotel-motel associations, the chamber of commerce and many of the local businesses, great strides have been taken to increase visitors in the shoulder months or more commonly known as the "off-season."
What could be better than dusting off the bikes, seeing some sunshine, enjoying discounted off- season rates, and hanging out with fellow bikers in an extremely biker friendly environment? Thus-some local business guys got together and decided to create a spring rally in late April to satisfy everyone's needs. Local businesses were eager to help create this event because of the success of the fall rally that has been established here for over 13 years on the Eastern Shore. I guess you can say this rally was created by the business…for the business….and it doesn't hurt that we all love the biker community and truly appreciate what they bring to our resort town!
We at Bike's to the Beach truly want to extend many thanks to all the sponsors who make this event possible—especially Fish Tales, Jack Daniels, all the corporates, and a special thanks to the Hotel Motel Association, the Chamber of Commerce, the visitor's center, and D3 Corp. This event would not exist without your help and desire to see it succeed. Also, most importantly- a genuine thank you to the biker community who consistently receive accolades from local restaurants/bars and hotels based on courtesy and having good fun while maintaining a safe and respected environment.
The 2013 rally is April 25-28th! Let's open this motorcycle season with a bang and have a great time. Be sure to check out the events and register early for increased odds of winning! Book your hotel now!!
