The city of Daytona Beach has been working hard the past several years to make it unpleasant for the bikers and the bike vendors, that is one reason why Rossmeyer moved his operation north to Ormond and created Destination Daytona. A lot of vendors and visitors are going there instead of Daytona proper or the speedway, also Orlando Harley does a lot at their location just off I-4 during Bikeweek.
It has been dying ever since 911, the first Biketoberfest and Bikeweek after 911 were possibly the worst attended bike events in Daytona, they have both been going down hill since then.
I have not bothered going up and I am only about 30 miles south, to me it is just not worth the effort.
