+1.. When I lived there I went twice the best part was the ride there and back from Melbourne Fl. The shoulder to shoulder people at 90 degrees didn't cut it for us. The second time we went we rode there turned around and left at the outskirts. But we don't drink and not into the party thing.

I went to the very first one and many after that. The first one had around 8k bikes show up and it was fun so the 8k bikers spread the word and the second year there were 20k bikes and it was fun. By the 5th year there were around 150k bikes and not so much fun. Now you can't get a motel room unless you book it a year in advance and can't even get close to downtown unless you get lucky. Not so much fun.

It has always been very hot and with over 250k people shoved into a small space it becomes unbearable. If I go, I go on Sunday afternoon when more than half have left and the vendors are cutting prices like crazy. The same with Daytona except with Daytona it's a lot more spread out and you can ride for miles to different rallies and bars. In Leesburg you can ride to sugar mountain and it's a nice ride but only 1 place to stop and refresh. I lived there for 2 years before I got bored to death and moved.

The one nice thing about Leesburg is the cops. they let you alone unless you act really stupid and you can walk around with a drink unlike Daytona where they give ya a $175 fine if you are caught with a drink outside the bar and they stop every bike they can and give out tickets to get their $2k a day quota.

All the guys around here (we live 1.5 hrs from Leesburg) are going tomorrow Sunday afternoon. Temp to be around 93* with 80% humidity...
