Welcome to the Sunshine State! The second annual Eastbound Getdown presented by Stingray Chevrolet took place on the storied grounds of “Destination Daytona” from January 13-15, 2023. This is the exact location that hosts the famous Daytona Bike Week, which draws hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts each year.
Nowadays, you don’t need much convincing to drag someone to Florida because everyone’s moving there. But what happens when you mix beaches, great weather, and a huge custom show? You get one unforgettable memory! Nearly 600 participants across the United States, Mexico, and Canada, made the trek to enjoy some good old-fashioned Florida sunshine.
While there is a plethora of things to do in Florida and there is also an enormous number of awesome rides. When we entered the show on Saturday morning, we were immersed in a diverse automotive culture. The Eastbound Getdown event brought a wide variety of machines, food trucks and other entertainment for everyone to enjoy.
