The two regularly attend events geared towards motorcyclists, including Bike Week 2013. This annual event in Daytona Beach, Florida, drew 500,000 people over the course of ten days. This year’s event, the 72nd time it was held, solidified its ranking alongside the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally as one of the country’s most popular motorcycle rallies.

Bike Week 2013 was held between March 8 and 17, 2013. Bikers descended on Daytona Beach for more than a week of motorcycle themed exhibits, events, and races. One of the week’s highlights was the number of major manufacturers that took the opportunity to showcase their newest models. Harley Davidson allowed bikers to ride its new Breakout while Indian Motorcycle introduced its Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin with the help of American Pickers star Mike Wolfe. Many notable technological advancements also debuted, including Darkside Scientific’s Lumilor electroluminescent paint. Event attendees even had the opportunity to enter a raffle for the 2013 Official Bike Week Motorcycle, which was a 2012 Street Glide with an estimated value of $35,000 after customizations from Daytona Harley Davidson.

Naomi Loomis enjoyed many of the bike themed activities around the city with her husband.

They observed some of the motorcycle races, which took place from Daytona Speedway to Main Street, with concerts, street festivals, and parties in between. Naomi Loomis and her husband also enjoyed some of the custom bike shows, with the most notable events being:

  • Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show: considered one of the most prestigious custom bike building competitions in the country, the 41st edition of this event featured handmade trophies for the wide range of custom builders who competed.
  • Willie’s Tropical Tattoo Old School Chopper Show: a more grassroots alternative to other custom bike competitions, this event gives small shops and garage builders from across the country an opportunity to show off their work.
