For motorcyclists in states north of the Deep South, winter means dreaming of warmer weather, vacations on the back of a bike, and summer rallies. Many bikers will spend time with maps during those gray, cold days planning that next adventure. A lucky few will actually layer up and head to Daytona Beach, Florida, for the annual Daytona Bike Week in early March.
