DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Here is one biker's video diary from his YouTube page called "Roadside Channel" that showcases Days 1 and 2 of Daytona's Bike Week.
This is what he wrote under the YouTube video he posted: "Day one of Bike Week 2017 was sort of a bust. I got there way too early. I snapped a few photos and then went on a nice long ride away from Daytona. Day two was far more festive so I decided to do a comparison of day one and day two. The weather was perfect both days, but it looks like bad weather may move in for Sunday and Monday."
He continued with an important observation and concern we should all take heed with: "If there was anything that you could pick out that has been a problem with Bike Week this year, it would be the absolutely STAGGERING number of IDIOTS driving cars with cell phones glued to hand texting and driving. I counted over 50 just on the trip from the Speedway to Main Street Beach side."
