Kawasaki Announces “Bike Nite in the Daylite” Event in Daytona
What would Daytona Bike Week be without bike shows? Well, if you own a Kawasaki that you want to show off or if you’re just a fan of Kawasakis, we’ve got news of an important event that you’re going to want to add to your calendar. On Friday, March 14th from noon to 3:00 PM, Kawasaki is hosting “Bike Nite in the Daylite” at the Daytona Int’l Speedway.
This is a people’s choice event where the folks in attendance get to vote for their favorite bikes in each of four categories: Best Sportbike, Best Cruiser, Best Vintage Bike, and Best Unique Bike. While the first three categories are pretty much self-explanatory, the fourth piqued our collective interests here at Motorcycle.com. So, we made sure that the “unique” winner will have the honor of having their bike featured right here on Motorcycle.com. (Oh, and also win a 16 gb iPad mini from Kawasaki.) Did we say that the winner will be featured here on MO?
If that’s not enough incentive, MO Associate Editor, Evans Brasfield, will be attending the event as one of the “celebrity judges.” (Yeah, we were shocked, too.) If you ask nicely, he might be willing to let you hang out with him, provided you shower him with expensive gifts. Or you could just berate him on how he offended your delicate sensibilities on some obscure motorcycle related fact that is important to you and at least half-a-dozen other riders worldwide.
Kawasaki owners who want to show off their rides will need to arrive at the event site at 11:00 for registration. Voting will take place from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM. The votes will be tabulated and announced at 3:30. Finally, the celebrity judges will choose the Best In Show from the four class winners. While the iPads awarded to the four winners and the $500 MasterCard debit card awarded to the Best In Show will be nice, the most important prize will go to the Best Unique Bike because of the coveted opportunity to appear on the hallowed pages ofMotorcycle.com.
