Bike week is happening a little later than usual next year, and will take place March 9 - 18.

According to this article, it's because Nascar pushed its race back a week, and there needs to be enough time between the races to switch the track from car to bike-ready.

Bike Week 2012 will take place a week later next year. The motorcycle rally, which just celebrated its 70th anniversary, is moving from its initial projected date of March 2-11, to March 9-18, 2012, according to the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce. The move coincides with NASCAR’s decision to push the date of the 2012 Daytona 500 back one week. Daytona International Speedway requires two weeks to make the conversion from car to motorcycle racing, including the building of a Supercross track on the Speedway’s infield.
