Don Emde- Trailblazers Hall of Famer, Don Emde is an American motorcycle racer, author and publisher.
It’s hard to pigeonhole Don Emde as he’s done a lot since he became famous for winning the Daytona 200 in 1972. He was also the first son of a Daytona 200 winner, Floyd Emde, the 1948 race winner, to also win the 200. Don’s not done with challenging rides; May 3, 2014 Emde and 25 guest riders departed San Diego, California for Manhattan, New York, retracing Cannon Ball Baker’s 1914 route.
