A Bit of Daytona in Ruskin


Bike Week in Daytona attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors and tens of thousands of motorcycles to the city each year. On a significantly smaller scale, several members of the Volusia Owners League, owners of Suzukiís Volusia motorcycle, converged on Ruskin for a group ride on Sept. 7. Some bikes had travelled more than 100 miles to attend. A Harley Davidson, Hondas and other bikes added color to the group. In all nearly 30 bikers stopped for lunch at Bahia Beach Resort and rode through E.G. Simmons Park receiving waves and smiles from those the long line of motorcycles passed. "It was almost like being in a parade, I wished that I had candy to throw out," said one biker.
