Laconia 2019

Well as usual a trip is planned , me and my buddies are doing Laconia this year, except instead of going Thursday thru Sunday , we chose to go Saturday thru Tuesday at the beginning of the week, got a better deal on the econolodge and obviously less traffic and crowds, dis the end of the week madness plenty of times, just going for the riding this time. Any of you shark tank members heading there early in the week as well just curious, wouldn't mind meeting up with some of you fellas and put faces on some of the screen names.

I've been trying to think of a good time to go visit family in MA/NH. Might be a good reason to choose the beginning of June.

I toured the area in 2014 on my Concours 1400. Really enjoyed Maine. Rained the whole time I was riding in NH. Of course June can be pretty rainy in that area.

You're right about the weather. Went to Laconia Bike week twice and never saw the Sun.

In some ways that's a good thing.. When the sun is out the traffic is crazy!! Mostly stop and very little go it is miserable..

I've been planning my rally trips like this for years......show up a few days early and leave mid-week before the madness starts. The roads are the same and less crowded, hotels are cheaper, restaurants are less crowded and most of the vendors are already there. The one (and only) year I went to Daytona, the traffic was so bad we parked the bikes on Friday and Saturday and walked to Main St.

At this stage of the game I have done the weekend madness plenty of times, so figured we go early and ride and enjoy without the traffic, because the traffic circle going to wires beach was a disaster on Friday and Saturday, total buzzkill.
