    Daytona Bike Week 2007 Ends on High Notes

    <img align="left" src="http://www.riderinfo.com/news_images/arts-sign-2007.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:6px" alt="Arts Place" />Sunday was the wrap up of Daytona Bike Week which ended with the successes of many planned events and a drop in the rate of lost bikers compared to last year.

    The annual Rider Info Meet and Greet party at Art&rsquo;s place which takes place the second Saturday of bike week had visits from Rider Info members from around the country as well as many locals.

    Art’s Place and Rider Info gave away free door prizes of tee shirts and hats and a motorcycle contest awarded plaques for best bike, rat bike, furthest ridden, furthest trailered and a You won award. The Bad Apple Band entertained the crowd with music and there was plenty to eat and drink. Special thanks to Jugs & Strokers for the Ocala Bikefest shirts.

    The "You won" award is given for whatever ridiculous reason we come up with. This year it was given to a guy who complained he never won anything. Now he can&rsquo;t complain anymore.



    In November we lost Art and to show our appreciation to him for hosting the annual Rider Info Meet and Greet we presented the Family and Management of Art&rsquo;s with a plaque. The plaque featured pictures of Art and a Memorial certificate of our gratefulness. Art will be missed.



    Last year during Daytona Bike Week statewide there were 21 bikers lost in accidents. Sixteen of those accidents occurred in Volusia and Flagler counties with the other five taking place outside the immediate bike week area.

    This year there was in improvement in the numbers of bikers lost during the 10 day event. At last count for late Sunday, seven bikers were lost in accidents with only five of those being in the local bike week area. These are sad losses, but a positive improvement in bike week safety. We should not rest until the count is zero in our efforts to spread the word about motorcycle safety to both motorcyclists and auto drivers.

    We hope you had a safe and good time at Bike Week this year, we did. Check out these photo galleries for our Daytona Bike Week 2007 photos.
