Number one go see the races, the short track races are great!!! Don't drink and ride. A lot of people get killed or injured during bike week and most if not all are alcohol related.

Main street on saturday night...ride down it once then just sit and watch bike week come to you for a few hours

limp nickie lot and cycle source show on saturday...awesome choppers!

******* tropical tatto show on thursdays...agian...awesome choppers!

either a flat track race or motocross race...way fun

a ride on the beach

Those are the great spots for cool garage built bikes and low attitudes

I personally stay away from places like the iron horse, cabbage patch, and boot hill...they really don't do much for me.

RIDE! Other than that it depends on what your into.. Take a ride down man street maybe get off and walk a bit check out the scene. I'm not really one to fight the crowds, I may go to Iron Horse and Main Street one day/or night but honestly get out and enjoy the riding. St augustines not far, thats a nice ride for a few hours theres lots of back roads that will get you out of town and away from traffic. I'm local, I enjoy the event but I prefer to spend my time out riding with friends.... Let me know if you need any suggestions for rides. A couple of dont's law enforcement is pretty tough

1. Don't rack your pipes they will site you under the noise violation State Statute and its not cheep

2. Don't take your open beer onto the sidewalk They have and open container city ordinance and some of the LE will write you

3. Don't let your S.O. flash her **** on Main Street. She will NOT get a warning she WILL get a fine and depending on the LEO she may end up in a prisoner transport van and taken to the sub-station

4. Don't do burn outs Careless Driving State Statute.

5. Don't ride like you are wearing an *** hat.

6. Dont drink and drive they have ZERO tolerance for that ****.

Have fun and be safe. Check out the web for activities and RIDE
