Stan Loomis on his first motorcycle. Years later, he rode his customized 2010 Big Dog Wolf to Biketoberfest with his wife.

Stan Loomis has traveled with his wife and their kids to a number of states as well as overseas.

While they sometimes travel by air, chartered yacht, or sailboat, other times they attend nearby destinations by motorcycle.

Last year, Stan Loomis and his wife rode their custom choppers from their home in Orlando to Biketoberfest 2013 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

As one of the country’s largest motorcycle rallies, Biketoberfest attracts thousands of riders to the city each year for motorcycling themed activities, events, and exhibitions. The 21st Biketoberfest event, Biketoberfest 2013, took place between October 17th and 20th.

Since the event was hosted in Daytona Beach, visitors were able to enjoy the gorgeous weather and perfect beaches in between motorcycle rallies and shows. Stan Loomis and other attendees were also able to take part in guided tours throughout the city. Other events included live music, racing on Daytona International Speedway, and viewing displays by major manufacturers debuting the newest models of popular bikes. The weekend’s events were contained in one of three locations:

Main Street: All attendees began on Main Street, where they learned about the weekend’s events at the welcome tent. Stan Loomis and his wife even sampled food at some of the nearby restaurants, relaxing outside as the parade of bikers arrived throughout the day.

Beachside: The Boardwalk Classic Bike Show is held in this location and awards cash prizes and trophies to the owners of the best looking bikes. Attendees can also spend time on the beach, eat local seafood, and tour the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.

Beach Street / Ballough Road / Fairview Avenue: This area featured multiple motorcycle exhibits, including Harley-Davidson’s Museum Store, BMW Ducati Triumph of Daytona, and Carl’s Speed Shop race museum.
