 Bike Week 2011 Logo 

We know spring’s just around the corner when it’s time to get ready for the annual madness that is Daytona Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Fla., March 4-13. 2011 marks the 70th anniversary of racing at Daytona Beach, and classic bike fans can look forward to the annual AMCA National meet in nearby Eustis and the Bator International Auctions 24th Annual Daytona Classic Motorcycle Auction in Deland.

Missing this year, however, will be AHRMA racing at Daytona International Speedway, which has been moved to October 14-16. That’s a bit of a bummer for vintage race fans, but there will be AHRMA racing March 7-9 at Roebling Road Raceway in Bloomingdale, Ga., about four hours north of Daytona Beach. Frankly, between the AHRMA races at Roebling Road, the AMCA meet in Eustis and the Bator auction in Deland, there’s enough going on for vintage bike fans that you won’t really miss much if you never actually get to Daytona Beach.

The AMCA meet, which includes a judged show and a swap meet, kicks off March 4 and runs through March 6, and the Bator Auction will open for previewing March 9. Bator will hold its Parts & Memorabilia auction on March 10, and the headline Classic Motorcycle Auction on March 11. A swap meet will run at the Bator event all three days, March 9-11. – Richard Backus
