Daytona Bike Week Day 4
The next morning we were in the mood for some riding, so after breakfast we were ready to ride “THE LOOP”. We pulled into a gas station to fill up, everything was going great, until, Arleen went to start her bike. I had replaced the battery myself three months earlier so I knew the battery should be good, however, that knowledge didn’t help start the bike. After a jump from a nice young man, the bike was purring away. At this point I didn’t trust the bike to make the run. So back to Bruce Ross Myer’s Daytona Harley Davidson shop. After Arleen’s bike was checked into the service department, V started talking to a sales rep about a Sportster that had caught her eyes. If you ever bought a bike from a dealership, you know it takes a long time. Long story short, by early afternoon V had traded in a Yamaha 650 for the Harley Sportster 1200. We were very happy for her and more than ready to get out of there for a ride. However, Arleen’s bike would not be ready until morning. She rode double with me, it took most of the day to get there, but THE LOOP ride was wonderful and was topped off with a great dinner at The River Grille across the Tomoka River.
