    Re: Loves Truck stop Florida kicks out truck drivers for Bike week

    Guess one could form his or her own gated truck stops, no vans, no civilians(4wheelers), just big rigs and straight trucks to eliminate all the fussing and there you go..........I will need 5000 truckers to send me 5 bucks a month to get it set up, please give me one year and I'll get back to ya......................rite?
    You can choose to be right...or you can choose to be happy. I vote for the latter.

    What riding a Harley is like.

    I also don't have a clue. Neither do I have a clue about bathing in hot lava, eating tripe, or living in a Yugo on the streets of Detroit... nor do I want to be clued in.

    Your comment was a stereotypical reference to what it was like decades ago. It's truly not the case anymore. My '91 Heritage made it from Alpena, Mi to Vegas and back without an issue, wasn't even worried about it. I expect my '11 Ultra Classic to be just as dependable.

    Cracks me up because most of the truck drivers I know ride motorcycles also (not just Harley's)!

    Love's needs to get a clue to this.

    Actually, those comments were jokes. You know, one linees meant to make people laugh, to brighten up their day, even make them smile! It is amazing how many on here are so easily offended, with no sense of humor at all.. Take a breather, and relax.. It'll be alright...lol.

    No offense was taken just given it right back atcha. However as Star knows my jiffy stand fell off about 3 weeks ago 3 blocks from my house and yes I did here it fall and did stop to pick up the stand. LOL now but not then.

    I'm too critical of 4-wheelers. That's why I won't ride. Also, wouldn't appreciate getting a mouthful of asphalt pebbles, while riding thru Michigan and Arkansas.

    Re: Loves Truck stop Florida kicks out truck drivers for Bike week

    This isn't new. Happens every year during Bike Week. I'd just avoid the whole area. Not worth the hassle even trying to get to that Love's during Bike Week or even Biketoberfest in October. Bike Week draws millions of people and 10's of thousands of bikes all crammed in that small area. For the millions and millions that will be spend during this week I don't think Love's or even the City of Daytona will lose any sleep over a few trucks that decide to buy fuel somewhere else. We all ride but we avoid Daytona during Bike Week like the plague. The name of the Harley shop is Bruce Rossmeyer's....huge harley shop!!! My advice................just avoid that area for the week. And watch out for bikes!!!! Several bikers are killed each year @ Daytona Bike Week.

    Since this Love's has been open it has been the policy. Even when I drove a big truck I would either head south and stay in either the rest area or I would stay either at the T/A or farther south the pilot, loves or the Hook. I no parking there I would head south to tr tiki hit truck stop on US 29 just south of I75.

    The first year that the Loves was there, they allowed trucks to park during Bike Week and we got a spot...it was awesome! The next year we found out that they didn't allow parking during Bike week and it was the last time we we've stopped there.

    Its the same no mater what chain they are. They changed thier names from truck stops to travel centers and the opt to cater to the sixty dollar fuel purchaser and screw the people that made them what they are. Travel centers are are nothing more than convienence stores with big parking lots. Thats why I still try to look for the privately owned mom and pop places.
