30 WheelsOfGrace.com Aug/Sept 2016 The iPhone read: 45 degrees. No rain and highs in the 70s, perfect weather to ride to Daytona. We made the 300+ mile ride four mes in two days from Tampa, Florida. Crossing the state through the county roads in the harmonic rumble was a delight. Always seems like the first me. Daytona Beach was packed. There were bikes everywhere and more Trikes than I have ever seen in one place. Main Street, close to the beach was just like every other biker event with a lot more people and bikes than the usual. An es mated 600,000 leather vests were in Daytona, and people of all kinds riding bikes of all makes. Here and there we saw an Indian, a metric and for the first me saw Victory police bikes. Every bike you can think of rode by and each one nicer than the one before. We met an old friend from California and spent most of the day at the Daytona Speedway. We came across the F.A.I.T.H. Riders tent while they were busy witnessing to people for six minutes for the opportunity to win a new Harley. We stayed for a li le while and shared with Mike Stewart the Na onal Director that invited us to their Na onal event on Labor Day weekend. We saw Soldiers For Jesus ride by and, a er going through the different manufacturers tents looking at the new parts and accessories, we ended up at the Heaven Saints M/M booth (see photo above). There, we fellowshipped with some of the members present and talked about some of the old days and their founder Barry Mason whom I had the honor to meet and spend me with years ago in Oklahoma City. As we walked through the crowds we no ced the friendly CMA (Chris an Motorcycle Associa on) guys and gals assis ng at a parking lot and when we walked to the pier, we saw a COL (Chariots Of Light) member praying with a homeless man (see photo on bo om le ). The ride back was beau ful and the weather was in our favor. The two days went quickly and we didn't see all we wanted to but we are looking forward to seeing Daytona again, maybe this year in October.
