DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Bikers are getting ready to roar into Daytona Beach this weekend -- It's the start of Bike Week.

Last year's 10-day motorcycle rally generated nearly $75 million for the local economy.

This year's event is expected to bring in 1.5 million visitors.

Bike Week kicks off on Friday, and motorists are urged to drive with extra caution to help make this year's event safe.
