Bars that show MOTO RACING? Daytona Bike Week-end

Can you point me to any bars that play racing on the TV's?

Specifically - looking for a place for Bike Week-end!

None that I've seen but if you go to a dive with multiple tv's then you can usually ask them to change the channel on one to the sport of your preference.

BWW's has put MotoGP on for us before. They're usually not too busy on a weekend afternoon.

Players Club always has the races on

How's parking at Players Club? On their site it says free parking across the street when Car X is closed but question is would you park your bike there?

Any bar with Speed Channel. Most places don't know they have that channel. Ask and do some research around the area you hang out.

Parking there is fine. Every time I've gone you can turn around and look through the window and see your bike parked on that side street.

There was always plenty of parking on the street when i went. If not, you could always park on Ashland. It's cool cause if the owner is there, you can park by his GT3 and you know your bike is safe.

Parking is great at Players and the atmosphere is great also but the service sucks. I don't know what those Polish women are doing behind the scenes but they take forever to bring you your food and drink. They don't serve you fast enough to get drunk. Maybe they don't like Asians?

I've gone to the Foundry by fox valley mall before... Huge screens cover one warehouse sized wall. If it's not on there then each booth has a tv built in the wall.

Namaste

They shouldn't dress that way if they didn't want me to look.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

G2g, morrand and a few of the city guys set up stuff there every now and then.. Just keep your eyes on group rides or gatherings...... I know the Ducati group goes there often and we have some members of DRILL on CLSB also........
