Who lives in or near Daytona, FL

I would like to attend the supercross race and any other AMA race on March 10 2012 and was wondering who has been, what to expect, where to stay etc etc.

I dont have any advice on where to stay. Are you flying in or bringing your bike? That would be my first question. As far as coming the answer is yes. Do it. Theres alot to do and see that week. Its not moto gp but its really good racing and the access is really fantastic. Ran into Geoff May last year walkin around the infeild. Where else can you get this close to the action.

I can remember seeing the motorcycle race on the beach which should give you some idea of how long I have been doing this. This is my big week and I very much enjoy it. But having said this I also know that different people like different things and how you enjoy Daytona will for the most part depend on what you like to do. There are many options but let me give you the ups and downs the way I see it.
DOWNS: 1-The motels can be very expensive. Some are over $300 per night with a 3 night limit. 2- The main HWYs are crowded and the traffic is stop and go. You should not plan to ride a motorcycle on these roads. 3- If you dont know anything about the race and the people who ride the motorcycles then it can be difficult the follow them on the track. 4-There are very few girls and there are always a bunch of ugly hairy guys.
Ups: 1-You can find a reasonable room if you are willing to shop or drive a few miles to the track. There are rooms on the beach for $60 per night but you have to look for them and remember some of these rooms are nasty so be careful. I stayed in the Best Western at Palatka, Florida last year. It was clean with two nice restaurants and the St. Johns River within walking distance. I think I remember that it cost about $80 per night. 2- I love to see all the Motorcycles. There are thousands of every shape, type and size. 3-I love to talk to all the people. People come from all over the country. Many ride bikes. 4- I love the races and this is the reason I attend. My favorite is the Super bike but the Dirt, the Motor Cross and the 200 are also fun. These races are always fast and very competitive.
