Bike Week Daytona: More than a tradition, It's a lifestyle! ™

It's true! but there are too many changes trying to be forced upon the bikers and other visitors to the Daytona Beach area. With all the new or newly enforced laws making our yearly event less enjoyable, we wanted to do a little digging and see what or who was causing this to happen. One is quick to say it's the cops but it's not them. They are only doing their job in enforcing the laws (true, some may be over zealous at times). The law, who comes up with these lame laws that the Daytona Beach Police must enforce? The Daytona Beach City Commission with one particular commissioner that seems to have a problem with the biker community and lifestyle. Darlene Yordon has gone as far as stating that her residents" must move away during biker events if they want to sleep and referring to her area Zone 2 (event area) as "the war zone". Ms. Yordon has announced that she wishes to be Mayor of Daytona Beach! She has not even taken the time to create a bio or message on the City Commission site. She certainly could not say she is glad we are back! Here is the way that one of the local residents of Volusia County feels about Ms. Yordon and also points out a great insight as to her motives. For very informative reading on what really goes on in Daytona Beach and how your money (as a visitor) goes to waste see The Real Daytona
"I hate motorcycles," said City Commissioner Darlene Yordon,who spoke of a "groundswell" of opposition to special events from Daytona residents. She said of the tourist behavior at biker events, Black College Reunion and spring break: "These people come down here and they take stupid pills . . . It just overshadows everything else that's so good here."
give me a break! I have to agree with Daytona Harley Davidson owner Bruce Rossmeyer who stated in this same article "She's just making everything very difficult . . . Somebody should say, 'Shut the hell up.'
