Nefarious James “Now Leave”
Welcome to Daytona Bike Week. Now Leave! Not a very Southern way of being hospitable is it?

Well, to some it may be the greeting they receive when they arrive in Volusia County to attend the annual Bike week event. I’m referring to the percentage of the participants who ride to this event displaying their patch logo or “colors” signifying their membership in a motorcycle-related club or organization.

Unless you’ve been under a rock or just don’t participate in Bike Week in Daytona, you can’t help but notice the “No Colors Allowed” on the entrances to various businesses during the event. It is my understanding that this more or less started in or around 1987 after an incident on the beach occurred. Then the signs started to show up on some local businesses and have increased annually at the encouragement of local law enforcement.
