Daytona Beach, Florida
This is not a "static" webcam stuck on a building. Henry's Roving WebCam will show you bikers, bikes and places up-close and all over town.
During Bike Week and Biketoberfest, Henry runs all over the Daytona Beach area digitally photographing all the biker festivities that he can. Those digital photos are made into slide shows. These slide shows are called Henry's Roving WebCam (a new picture every 15 seconds). If you see yourself or someone you know on the webcam... e-mail Henry and let him know.

Every year people ask where I'll be so that they can find me, to have their picture taken and posted here in the archives. Starting 2002, I decided I would make it easier for people to find me, so I decided to stand across the street from BootHill Saloon on Main Street (just in front of the Pinewood Cemetery). Everyone knows where BootHill Saloon is and it makes a great photo background. I'm usually there in the afternoon between 3:30pm - sunset, when the lighting conditions are better for photography. I try to avoid taking pictures during the middle of the day when the sun produces the harshest lighting conditions for photography.
You can also contact me to have your "name/city/state" posted under your picture or purchase a printable size file of the photo that I e-mail to you.

Call Henry at 386-308-0248 (leave your: Name & Phone Number & short message)
I'll call you back (USA & CANADA ONLY)
or e-mail me: Click Here

A huge "THANK YOU" goes out to Amy Petruzelli of Ocala, Florida for giving Henry Jordan a fantastic NIKON D50 digital camera, 18-135mm zoom lens and many accesories that were desperately needed to continue Henry's BikeWeek Archives.

Today is the first day of Biketoberfest here in Daytona Beach, FL and the weather is very beautiful. The day started with blue sky and temperature of 67°F. at 10AM and will most likely get up to 85°F by the afternoon. A great day for riding a motorcycle to see all that Daytona has to offer.

Weather: cold clear blue sky, for the first day of Bike Week 2010 (69th event).
10:00am it's a crisp cold 47°F. w/clear blue sky
11:59am, 51°F. w/clear blue sky
2:59pm, 56°F. w/clear blue sky
The high temp should get up to 61°F today. Today, vendors are opening all over Daytona and surrounding areas for the first day of this 10 day Bike Week event. The city released that approx. 200,000 - 300,000 bikers should show up considering the depressed economy and the extra cold winter weather in the north (snow everywhere, it even snowed in Daytona this year). The New England states (I wounldn't want to be in New York today) are getting near blizzard conditions today. Makes me proud to be a Florida boy now (man, I hate cold weather)
The largest amount of bikers show up on the weekend (next weekend is the largest attendance days).
Where'd I go today: I met Jim Alva from Las Vegas, NV when I stopped in the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. I was there picking up some "bikers guide booklets." When, Jim and I met, we immediately recognized similar interests (computers, Internet, MagicJack, Las Vegas, photography, and just general techiness) so we spent 10 straight hours geeking out and laughing alot while we photographed bikers, bikes and Bike Week. The weather couldn't of been nicer. Actually it was beautiful and comfortable with leathers on. We went to Harley-Davidson Dealership on Beach Street where, across the street in the park, there was a great turnout of bikers and vendors, the total distance from the Dealership all the way down to Main Street. Bikes lined both sides of the street.
Harley-Davidson corporate has been located at the Ocean Center for years (decades), this year it looks like that has changed. They moved it all from Ocean Center over to Beach Street across the street from Bruce Rossmeyer's HD Dealership. So, now there's a really big biker "hot spot" there on Beach Street. At the Ocean Center, Cycle World International World Motorcycle Show replaced the Harley-Davidson displays.
Also, took a ride down Main Street, where it was really happening with plenty of fantastic looking bikers and bikes lining both sides of the street.
The Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau survey indicates that hotel reservations are up, and indicates a good Bike Week business forecast. Vendor registrations at both Main Street, the historic epicenter of the event, as well as Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach also are reportedly higher this year than last year.

10:00am, 46°F. chilly, cloudy with scattered light showers
FORECAST FOR TODAY: high temp up to 48°F cloudy, gray, scattered light showers, should clear "later this afternoon" when this cloudy rain front passes over Florida and leaves us with clear weather.

Weather: Today weather was just pain old dreary, gray, overcast, VERY WINDY and cold.
Where'd I go today: I didn't even leave my house (sure, you can call me a wimp) because of the weather. In talking with bikers that are here, report that the most difficult part of it all is getting out of their state and making it through all the snow to the warmer land of Florida. It's still snowing in Atlanta, GA.

Weather: The temperature was 52°F. at 11:58am
It's partly cloudy, some wind gusts 10 to 20mph. It's a beautiful day for riding (a bit chilly for my Florida boy likes) for all you up-north people covered in snow.
Where'd I go today: I'm going to pick up my 8 year old son from school and head to Main Street

Weather: today is beautiful 73°F., partly cloudy for the second day of Bike Week 2009.
Where'd I go: Beach Street near the Harley-Davidson shop. Traffic is average. I photographed Eddie Tratta and some of his bikes and a band in the waterfront park and many of the great looking bikes and people. I took about 250 photos today. Yes, photos will be posted here. I'm working everyday as fast as one man can. Remember, I have to run all over this very crowded town to take photos, edit the photos and then do all the webpage work. It's all a lot of work and I do enjoy it all. So be patient.
Hello to Gary in Kentucky that called HJ for BikeWeek update and conversation.

Weather: Noon, it's 55°F., cloudy and windy. At 1AM it rained for a couple hours. By 1PM the sky was clear blue - no clouds and 62°F. On a day like this, only bikers from the North were out and around... not Southern bikers. It got colder in the afternoon and then absolutely frosty (the wind made the temperature feel 20°F. colder).
Where'd I go: Nowhere, it was too cold and windy for me. Today started out with rain and then turned windy. Most people stayed in today and street vendors were all hunkered down waiting for the nastiness to pass. And then a cold front started coming in. By the afternoon, it was too cold for me to go out, so I stayed home to cover my organic vegetable garden because it's suppose to get down to the low 30's tonight. So, you think I'm a wimp, well, you are correct. I'm was born a "Florida Boy", I wear shorts all year. I don't do cold weather (temperatures below 65°F.). So, here I am working on the computer.

BootHill Saloon on Main Street
Monday 3/2/09
Photos will be posted here... please check back.
Weather: This morning we woke to 41°F. In just a couple hours we're up to 55°F. with bright sunny, clear blue sky. No wind to speak of. Not a single cloud in the sky. Looks like lots of bikes are out and about. It is beautiful today.
Where'd I go: I went to BootHill Saloon on Main Street and took about 250 photos to be posted here. I bumped into "Rat Bike" Smitty from Kentucky at the convienence store across from BootHill Saloon. We talked for a while about Big Daddy Rat and that Smitty wants a website and needs help getting it started. I told him that I had a bunch of photos of his Rat Bike and also his HarleyWood bike that he had entered into the Rats Hole Chopper Show back about 1998. He was sure happy about that. I took my seven year old son with me for his first Bike Week adventure. The weather was absolutely beautiful today. Main Street looked it's usual crowded. Good fun had by all.

Weather: Today weather was a copy of yesterday's weather. We woke this morning to a chilly 41°F. By Noon the temp is up to 55°F. with bright sunny, clear blue sky. It got windy and partly cloudy by the afternoon. The wind made it feel colder. Lots of bikes are out and about. Looks like another beautiful day.
Where'd I go: I went to BootHill Saloon on Main Street again and took about 230 photos to be posted here. Main Street is always filled with a constant flow of photogenic bikers and bikes. Even though it was cold weather, I did see one lady wearing skimpy clothes riding on the back of a motorcycle. When I was leaving... again, I bumped into "Rat Bike" Smitty again at the same convienence store across from BootHill Saloon, so I took some more shots of his award winning Rat Bike. I think he has his own private, "rat bike show" at that convienence store. His bike sure was drawing a crowd of folks. All checking out the abundant eclectic collection of stuff that's all over his bike. I think he has as much oil on the outside of his bike and the ground, as he does on the inside. Mounted on his gas tank is a piece of the Berlin Wall that he personally collected when he was there in 1989. He's a very interesting guy that lives way back in the mountains of Kentucky.

Weather: Today, for the first time this BikeWeek, the temperature was 65°F. and that makes me a happy Florida boy. Partly cloudy, blue sky and it is a bit windy on the beachside. Looks like it's gonna be a beautiful day here in BikeWeek paradise.
Where'd I go: My 7 year old son and I went to Main Street and took 190 photos. Saw lots of great bikes and people. I met a man wearing antlers that had just rode his Harley from Wisconsin... Wow, that is devotion. He said his heated coat was the only way he could have made it. Then, two bikes over from where I was standing, a Harley was pulling out and hit the bike parked next to him that fell over and hit the next bike. The second bike's handle bar went through the 3rd bike's windshield and dented the top of his headlight. The biker got off his bike came back and I helped him setup the 2 bikes that fell into each other. He then wrote his info on a piece of paper and left it on the seat of the broken windshield bike. The Police said, "it will work out" and no ticket was given. Check back to see if I got your picture.

Iron Horse Saloon
Thursday 3/5/09
Photos will be posted here... please check back.
Weather: Today, the temperature has risen to 72°F. Blue sky with maybe 3 small clouds. Beautiful motorcycle riding Florida weather here in Daytona Beach.
Where'd I go: Iron Horse Saloon This is one of my favorite places to go. Lots of incredable bikes and people. Always a great time. On stage at 5pm was Big Engine, a rock band from Jacksonville, Florida. David Allan Coe came on at 11pm, he always packs the house with his famous music and his own unique style. I wanted to see him, but I just couldn't wait around till 11pm, I was too tired (I know, I'm a wimp), I left at 7pm. Also, I photographed a vendor, Kim Brandell from Key Largo, Florida and his motorcycle sculptures. One of his bikes has dragons on it and the other has an eagle theme. You've got to see these photos!!! A number of people stopped me to take their photo, check back to see if you are one of them.

Weather: Today, the temperature is 75°F., I'm a happy Florida boy. Blue sky with just a few clouds. Now it's feeling like Florida, another beautiful day here in Daytona Beach. Today is NOT a wear-your-leathers day. Today is a t-shirt day.
Where'd I go: Froggy's Saloon, The Dog House, Corbin, Full Moon Saloon, Dirty Harry's, Main Street Station & BootHill Saloon all on Main Street. I got plenty photos of increadible bikes. One was a "smoke breathing dragon bike" and many more that you will just have to see to believe. You certainly can see it all on Main Street, I even saw Santa Claus on his bike... ah, sleigh. I caught a shot of Russell Mitchell of Exile Motorcycles as he was making a turn off of Main Street heading toward the Ocean Center. I also got some girls today, they only come out when it's warm. ;-)
I post the weather in the morning, then go out and around, then in the evening I post "where and what" I did and then work on all the photos that I took during the day. If you only knew how much work this is for a 55 year old, overweight, out of shape, long-haired Florida boy. But I love it. Actually, all this effort is causing me to lose weight and get in better shape.... yeah right. Well, maybe a little. Check back to see upcoming photos. I promise it will happen. I do want to mention that I have been slack in posting images in the past because I have had some health issues. I am doing better now.

Weather: Today, the temp is 76°F. at noontime. Blue sky, no clouds. Another beautiful day here in Daytona Beach.
Where'd I go: Sorry, but I couldn't go anywhere today. I think I wore my feet and legs out. I got up this morning and realized I was not going to be able to stand and walk all day, so I had to stay home. :-( I did drive down to Main Street to make a jewelry repair delivery and saw all the traffic. It doen't look like there is an economic depression or resession. Daytona Beach is packed with bikers and people. There is plenty of traffic in the streets, motels, bars are full and I see bags in people's hands when they come out of vendor stores.
I post the weather in the morning, then go out and around, then in the evening I post "where and what" I did and then work on all the photos that I take during the day.

Today, the weather was beautiful so I went to the River Front Park on Beach Street (across the street from Harley-Davidson dealership). At the park, I met and photographed the famous Vinnie and Cody (previously worked at Orange County Choppers) that had a tent setup to reveal their new custom bike building business called VForceCustoms.com. They will have one of their custom bikes there for everyone to see tomorrow. It will be raffeled off for FREE (just enter to win) next year during BikeWeek 2009.
I also snapped photos of Tom Cellie and his band playing on a great looking stage setup in the park. Lots of great food vendors.

Another beautiful Spring-like day. It's a very comfortable 70ish° F. with blue skies and scattered clouds. Plenty of sun. Today I see MANY MORE bikers in town, traffic overnight became very heavy. People at every location in town. International Speedway Blvd. from I-95 to the beachside looks like a parking lot with thousands of bikers heading to the beachside and all other points in Daytona Beach.
I went back to Beach Front Park, across from H-D dealership on Beach Street again today to photograph the “Inaugural Bike" called V Force 1 that Vinnie and Cody of VForcecustoms.com revealed for the first time today at 12 noon. There was a very long line of people waiting patiently to meet Vinnie and Cody, get an autograph and picture with them and to fill out a "FREE" raffle ticket. Vinnie and Cody are fraffleing off the first custom bike that they created in their new business venture together. Their custom bike looks very low and rideable, no radical rake or extened frontend. I love the way the large rear tire is not totally covered with fender. The bike has a short rear fender, with a low cradled solo seat and comfortable straight reach bars (no ape hangers). I filled out a raffle ticket and I'd be very proud to be the new owner of the VForce 1 come BikeWeek 2009. I got my fingers crossed.
I took a break to have a bite to eat at a street vendor across the side street from H-D dealership. I had a little conversation with the guy cooking my burger. He said his name was Joe Pancake, I said, "yeah right." He said, "really, that's the name I was born with." I never met or even heard of someone with a birthname of "pancake". A few minutes later, he came to the table where I was eating my burger and said, "look man I'm not fooling you" and then he rolled up his pant leg to show me a tattoo of a stack of pancakes on his leg. Well, you just never know. It's a big, big world.

It's warm and the sky is blue, not a cloud in the sky. Just another wonderful day in Florida. Excellent riding weather.
Today, I was on Main Street between Froggy's and BootHill Saloon. Main Street was crowded. The bikers are here in massive numbers. Escaping the cold of the north. It seems that about every 10th biker was wearing one of those scull face masks. I've never seen so many. I got some great babe shots of the girls working (selling beer) just off the sidewalk at the property just east of BootHill Saloon. I caught a shot of the olive green Army bike that was made by OCC (Orange County Chopper), complete with handgrenades, 50cal bullets, rifle, walkie talkie, etc. It had tank-like angles. Everyone's eyes were popping out, looking at it. You'll see pictures of it, the babes and plenty other bikers and bikes that I shot on Main Street.

Weather? Just another day in paradise. Today, was another blue sky day in the low 80° range.
The bad news: in the last 4 days of BikeWeek, 5 bikers have been killed. Please ride safely.
Today, I went to Destination Daytona. That property looks like a 150 acre biker city and it is still growing... it's huge. It looks like an amusement park for bikers. It has resturants, plenty of vendors selling every kind of biker item you can think of, a bar that is open till 2AM. The buildings on the property are all 3 stories tall. The 1st floor is retail stores and the 2nd and 3rd floors are condos. Wow, what a concept, you can live there. I strolled inside the 35,000 sq. ft. pavilion sponsored by Coka-Cola... looks like it will have concerts there in the future..

No pictures today...... it rained.
Today the weather was windy and overcast looking like it was going to rain any minute. Then, in the afternoon it did rain.
I didn't get any photos today, but I did drive my car down Main Street. I want to point out that although there is a great many places to go all over Daytona Beach and surrounding areas during BikeWeek, Main Street is still "THE HEART" of BikeWeek. Over on Beach Street, because of the rain and night-time approching, most places were shutting down, but not on Main Street. On Main Street it was "going on" with all vendors open, all bars and food places serving, multiple bands playing and gobs of bikers and bikes all up and down the street even though it had just rained and night-time was at hand. I love Main Street, even with all the problems that it has, it is still the best BikeWeek experience and a must see. Did I mention, "I love Main Street"!

Waaaa whooooo.... The weather is back to beautiful today. Warm with just scattered clouds. Another great day for BikeWeek.
Today, I spent a short time on Beach Street next to the Harley-Davidson dealership. I couldn't spent too long on the street because I had a doctor appointment I had to go to.

Went to Main Street Station and BootHill Saloon area on Main Street. This area is hard to beat. At Main Street Station from 4 - 8PM there was a, very entertaining, 2 piece band called Krackers. There was some great looking girls selling beer out near the sidewalk. One of the girls got arrested for exposure. Oh, oh. I believe that Main Street is so popular that, if you stand on the sidewalk long enough you will see every bike and biker that comes to BikeWeek. I think Main Street, which is only ¼ mile long (river to ocean), is my favorite BikeWeek area. However, my other favorites are Iron Horse Saloon and Broken Spoke Saloon and I think I will like Destination Daytona in the future when it gets more developed.

    I was at Broken Spoke Saloon all evening. During the concert, I was suppose to do LIVE updates to this report, but I couldn't log-on to a broadband connection with my computer. There was a large crowd of leather clad bikers and Bellamy Brother's fans. All the bands put on a great concert. Jay Allen, owner of Broken Spoke Saloon was his usual excellent host and MC. That man knows everything about older Harleys. He's a walking encyclopedia of old Harley and Indian facts, parts, motors and company info. Wink the sound man, operated his powerful 40,000 watt, 12' tall sound system. And the lovely bar girls were dancing for all to enjoy. A fun time was had by all. When the concert ended, the temperature turned pretty darn chilly.

    Today marks the 63rd Anniversary of Bike Week
    (1) weather | (2) Beach Street | (3) Main Street |
    (4) Main Street Bridge | (5) Wreck Bar | (6) Nancy Majik at Barney's Leathers
    Today, starting at 5pm was the first day of Bike Week 2004. The weather was cold and cloudy but... there was not a drop of rain. It was a great day for your warmest leathers. Bike Week is off to a great start.

    Saturday
    2/28/04
    (1) weather | (2) Piccadilly | (3) Chrome-A-Lot |
    It is chilly today, but still is about 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. Yesterday was downright C-O-L-D. Too cold for me. What can I say, I'm a Florida boy that wears shorts year round. That's right... even when it is cold. The sky was clear today and the best part... NO RAIN. Anybody remember 2003 when it rained 8 out of 10 days of BIke Week. OK forget that. Now, lets start warming things up and start having some Bike Week fun.

    Sunday
    2/29/04
    (1) weather
    (2) Dean Lemley and his Orange County Chopper
    (3) corner of Main & Beach Street
    Today the weather was realy NICE. It was just barely cool and just right for riding. There's lots of bikers in town and a lot of large companies setting up truck trailer rigs and huge tents displaying all their wares. I see many new faces. Harley-Davidson didn't leave Beach Street and go north to Ormond as was feared last year. They did buy the property in Ormond but there was not a sign or anything saying that they were there??? They have the money. They can go where they want and believe me it will be where the money is. They are all about the money. There is a lot of competition and more coming every year... can you say OCC and Discovery Channel? Paul and Paul have a great thing going on there with their beautiful choppers. Hey did you see their commerical on AOL? Those guys are funny. I like'em and I like their bikes. Anybody going to buy one of my 14k gold motorcycles that I am currently making? You'll see them when I complete them and post them on the Internet.

    No, I am not looking at my e-mail until after BIke Week... I'm currently receiving too much e-mail to respond to it all. If you want to contact me you must call me on the phone at 386-253-1904 or 386-451-0502. In a few days I'll be showing some 14k gold motorcycle jewelry that I am designing. What is motorcycle jewelry? Well you send me a photo of a motorcycle and I make a miniture look alike piece of jewelry of it (pendant, ring... you name it, I make it in gold or sterling silver and set diamonds in it). I'm a jewelry designer/builder. I've been doing the jewelry thing for 25 years now. I'm pretty darn good at it... no brag, just fact. Anyway... goodnight. I'll be back to this tomorrow. And my new TLC TV show will be showing in May 2004. Catch up with me on Main Street in front of BootHill Saloon this week. I'm usually there just before sundown. Out in the street taking pictures of people on their bikes as they cruise by. Damn, I'm having fun.
    I'm currently out collecting pictures and info. Please check back daily to see the latest pictures and info. I'm VERY busy for the next 10 days so it will be unlikely that I will find your e-mail in the thousands that I receive daily. Please wait till after Bike Week to call or e-mail me. Henry Jordan will be appearing in a new TV show about BIke Week that will air on (TLC) The Learning Channel in May (I'll post the exact date when I find out). BikeWeekReport.com will be going through a lot of improvements and expansion in the next few months that will be very rewarding for BWR's advertisers and audience. I am very excited about all the new improvements to come.

    Bike Parade ends Bike Week.

    TV shows Henry appears in:
    (1) Daytona Motorcycle Madness - 2000 - TLC (The Learning Channel)
    (2) Great Rides: Daytona - 2002 - The Travel Channel
    (3) in production now -2003 - TLC (The Learning Channel)

    Henry has been featured in a TLC or Travel Channel Bike Week TV show every year, for the last 3 years:
    The Learing Channel filmed Henry today to be featured in his 3rd TLC TV show which will air in the Spring of 2004. It takes TV show producers at least 6 months to one year to complete production and then air these shows. Then they will air again and again during the years to come. In the show, Sasha, one of the stars of the show, introduces Henry as the Bike Week Mayor because he knows so much about Bike Week and is in touch with everyone on the Internet around the world. See pictures of the show's stars and producers on Wednesday & Thursday's webcam shots.
    Henry is the Alfred Hitchcock * of Bike Week TV shows.

    * A bit of trivia... "Alfred Hitchcock, a movie director from 1925 - 1976, always made a cameo appearance in his movies". He directed and made a brief appearance in some very famous classic movies like: Psycho, The Birds and Vertigo. And so far, Henry has made an appearance in the last 3 shows filmed about Daytona Bike Week on TLC (The Learning Channel) or The Travel Channel which are both owned by Discovery Channel. Because of the TV shows and 10 years of website operation, many people recognize and stop Henry to say hello, as he walks the streets during Bike Week.

    Today was the first day of Biketoberfest and the weather was absolutely beautiful. I failed to get any pictures today :-(    

    Friday
    10/17/03
    (1) weather | (2) Harley-Davidson dealership Beach Street | (3) Harley Hummer | (4) Uncle Sam | (5) Dyno Drag | (6) Carls Speed Shop
    All the above pictures were taken on Beach Street near the Harley-Davidson dealership. This is the largest Biketoberfest that I have seen in years. I guess the bikers are making up for Bike Week 2003 that rained 8 out of 10 days. Today was cloudy, which made it warm instead of HOT. The weather was nice.

    Saturday
    10/18/03
    Coming...
    Main Street, Paul Jr & Sr Teutel of Orange County Choppers, Indian Larry, Wreck Bar and Boothill Saloon area. The weather was beautiful today... warm and blue skies. I'm not kidding, this is the biggest Biketoberfest and it seems every bit as crowded with the same attentance of Bike Week. Unbelievable... Please check back...

    Sunday
    10/19/03
    I hope to get these images posted sometime as time permits.

    is the 62nd Anniversary of Bike Week
    (1) rainy weather | (2) rain stopped | (3) HD dealership on Beach Street
    Everyone stayed in their motel room as it rained most of the day. Then, at 4PM the rain stopped to allow Bike Week to begin. The day comes to life as I hear the cranking and roar of Harleys all over town. Henry's Roving WebCam stayed at Harley-Davidson dealership on Beach Street. The sky remained very cloudy, but no rain, for the rest of the day and night.

    Saturday
    3/1/03
    very cloudy with just a little sunshine, NO rain and best of all it's nice and WARM.
    (1) cloudy weather | (2) Main St. /Boothill area
    (3) Jesse James / The Wreck | (4) Main St. Station

    Sunday
    3/2/03
    (1) partly cloudy weather with a little sunshine, NO rain and best of all it's nice and WARM. This is (2) what I saw today on Main Street in the Boothill Saloon area.

    Monday
    3/3/03
    RAIN, RAIN, RAIN...
    You know what it looks like.

    Tuesday
    3/4/03
    it's very cloudy, (1) see weather report, and rained off and on all afternoon, but it's nice and WARM. At about 8:30 it rained hard then stopped about midnight. This is (2) what I saw on Main St. near Boothill Saloon between rain showers

    Wednesday
    3/5/03
    Today is beautiful, (1) see weather report, the sun is out and it is nice and warm.... can you say 80°. The Learning Channel (TLC) caught up with me today. They filmed me in the middle of Main Street in front of The Wreck (where Jesse James is set up). I was interviewed by the two beautiful stars of the show, (2) Sasha "BikerLady.com" and Vicky "sport bike racer". I will be a feature in their new Bike Week TV show that will air sometime around July '03.. This will be my 3rd appearance on a TLC (The Learning Channel) or Travel Channel TV show in the last 3 years. I'm kind of like Alfred Hitchcock* of Bike Week TV shows. I then spent the rest of the afternoon on (3) Main Street in front of Boothill Saloon. Many people stop and say hello that recognize me from this website or the TV shows.
    * For those of you that don't know who Alfred Hitchcock was or know this bit of trivia about him... "he made a cameo appearance in every movie that he directed". And so far, I have appeared in the last 3 shows filmed about Daytona Bike Week on TLC (The Learning Channel) or The Travel Channel which are both owned by Discovery Channel.

    Thursday

    Today, the weather is a beautiful sunny day with scattered clouds and the temperature is 86° (1) see weather report. I went to Bikers Paradise, located at the New Smyrna Speedway. By the time I got home it was late and I worked until 2:30am tring to get images posted but I kept falling asleep, so I went to bed. I am now (Friday 3PM), working on posting the BP images.

    CONCERT at Bikers Paradise:
    Blue Oyster Cult.played starting at 9PM. They always draw a crowd and put on a good show, played new studio songs as well as their classic tunes from the early 1970's. The real story was the band that is playing every day at BP until March 8. They are a band called Amulette from Tampa, Florida that played excellent classic rock music. I talked with 2 of the band members, Bruce Miller (vocals) and Larry King (drummer). They were a great group of guys really enjoying playing for the bikers at Bikers Paradise.
    More images will be posted soon (if I can ever get the time)...
    Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday's webcam images will be posted as soon as I can. I didn't get to bed until 3 or 5 AM most every night during Bike Week producing this webcam. And, I fell behind. I am sorry. I spent 11 days away from my business (jewelry store), wife and fifteen month old baby boy. So, I'm trying to catch up with everything and that includes this webcam. Yes, I do need help but I can't afford it. It cost me dearly to do what I do and I can't afford to pay someone else at this time. Hopefully when more advertisers and sales occur I will be able to pay someone to help me keep this all up to date. But, until then, I just do what I can do by working 12 - 14 hours per day, 7 days a week before and during Bike Week.


    Friday
    3/7/03
    It rained hard on and off all day. The temperature dropped from the 80's down to the upper 60's. At 4pm the Weather Channel even posted a SEVERE WEATHER ALERT until 6PM. I went to the HD dealership on Beach Street. Many people stopped me saying they recognized me from this website or the TV shows. Between waves of rain, I got pictures that will be posted later. All the bikers are still making the best of it. As soon as the rain stops, the streets are filled with bikers going like nothing happened. It doesn't seem to hinder too much except when it is in the process of raining. A lot of the outside venues are suffering from the rain. Even after it stops raining, their property is still wet or muddy. I feel bad for all the vendors that have to be setup outside in the rain. They pay a lot of money to be here. It stopped raining at about 8PM and didn't rain the rest of the night. I don't get as many good webcam photos at night, but I stayed and did it anyway. I then went to Main Street, first stop was The Wreck, on the river, where many people again recognized me and they will be in the webcam pictures.
    More images will be posted soon...
    Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday's webcam images will be posted as soon as I can. I didn't get to bed until 3 or 5 AM most every night during Bike Week producing this webcam.

    On Wednesday, I asked all you webcam watchers to e-mail me and you did... I got FLOODED WITH E-MAIL.... TOO MANY TO ANSWER. I answered hundreds of e-mails then looked at how many more I had to answer... and there is hundreds or thousands more to go. I replyed to e-mails till 5:30AM and couldn't answer any more, I had to go to bed. Keep sending them but please don't be upget at me if I can't promptly reply. I will reply to each and every one, but it's going to take me some time. I don't know how many thousand e-mails I have received since Bike Week began. But keep them coming.
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU..
