Lived in Florida and went to my first Bike Week in 1968. Wasn't as crazy back then. Last one was 1998 then we moved to Kansas. Its was always fun parking a few blocks away and walking to Main Street. Used to enjoy the shows at the Armory and Hotel on A1A. Really nothing like it used to be. My first time in Daytona Beach was 1957 when my mother and I moved to Eau Gallie. It was paradise back then. Eau Gallie was 712 people and Melbourne was 3700.
