Victory Motorcycles has released a list of events it has planned for 2013 Daytona Bike Week, which runs March 9-16.
This year's itinerary will be highlighted by demo rides and a "Victory Ride" led by R. Lee "Gunny" Ermey. And all the events will help the American V-Twin brand celebrate its 15th anniversary.
Josh Fulkerson (Victory Marketing Manager) says: “Victory is 15 years young and just getting started, and this year’s Daytona Bike Week will be extra special for Victory and all Victory riders.
"After Victory was founded, Daytona was one of the first rallies where we showed our bikes and offered demo rides. It’s always a great event to celebrate more of what we all love to do – ride.”
