Naomi Loomis considers domestic and international travel to be two of her favorite hobbies, often visiting different states and countries with her family.
Naomi Loomis has traveled by sailboat, yacht, and air when traveling long distances but also likes to take in local events. Last year, Naomi Loomis rode their motorcycles from their home in Orlando to Daytona Beach, Florida to enjoy Biketoberfest 2013.
Biketoberfest is one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the United States, drawing thousands of riders to Daytona Beach each year to take part in motorcycle themed, events, activities, and exhibits. Biketoberfest 2013 was the 21st event of its kind and took place October 17-20th. Attendees were also able to take in the gorgeous weather and pristine beaches in between motorcycle events. Naomi Loomis and her husband even rode on a guided tour of the city.
Biketoberfest 2013 favorites included races held on Daytona International Speedway, major manufacturer exhibits with new models of popular bikes, and live music. These events took place in one of three locations throughout the city:
- Main Street: Biketoberfest attendees start at Main Street, where they are able to learn about the weekend’s schedule at the welcome tent. Naomi Loomis and her husband sat outside at one of the street’s restaurants so they could watch as bikers arrived throughout the day.
- Beach Street/Ballough Road/Fairview Avenue: These three streets were home to both temporary and long-standing exhibits and shops. The most popular destinations in this area were Carl’s Speed Shop race museum, Harley Davidson’s Museum and store, and BMW Ducati Triumph of Daytona.
- Beachside: Attendees can enjoy fresh, locally caught seafood at a variety of restaurants, tour the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, or relax on the beach. This location is also home to the Boardwalk Classic Bike Show, which awards trophies and cash prizes to the participants with the best looking bikes.
