Biketoberfest Accident Lawyer - Know Your Rights if You Are Injured or Lose a Loved One
Every October, more than 125,000 motorcyclists flock to Daytona Beach for one last ride before storing their bikes away for the winter. Between Oct. 13-16, 2016, motorcycle enthusiasts from across the United States, Canada and around the world will come together for an extended weekend getaway at the festival known as Biketoberfest®, which features expos, charity rides and motorcycle races. For many riders, Biketoberfest is a big part of the motorcycle culture they love. It's a time to take to the road and explore Florida. Many bikers take day trips on I-4 to Orlando from Daytona. Or perhaps they enjoy a ride along historic A1A near the Atlantic Ocean or other Florida roads.
Biketoberfest has something for everyone in love with two-wheeled fun. The motorcycle festival offers many motorcycle-friendly events and provides bikers with a chance to cruise main street or enjoy a ride around "The Loop." Bike enthusiasts from Florida to Canada who toss aside their workday routine and head to Daytona Beach experience a motorcycle adventure that keeps many riders coming year after year.
