I will be there with 5 riders. We are staying at a house in Tifton. None of us have ever been there so it will be an adventure. Arrive Saturday, leave the following Saturday.

Awesome you have the full week!
Don't know your planned route. But, a lot on NY thruway into Albany is open and sweeping. One can fly along. After Albany, Rt 100 across VT into NH is a nice ride. Stay back roads to Tilton. Be careful to stay within in town speed limits. More later !

I updated the post back on page one, with the Whiskey Barrel line up for the week.

Tower Hill has at least some of the band schedule on their Facebook Page. I sent them a note, asking for the whole lineup to be posted to their Web site.

Sat 6/9 - Kiss Tribute band, Sunday 6/10 British Invasion 3 bands, starting at 3pm. Mon 6/11 Exit 21. Tues 6/12 Riley Parkhurst Project. Weds 6/13 AXIS NH Band.

Thats the best I had time to do. Manhcuka site says they are playing there Thursday.

========================
Breakfast places during Bike Week !

Union Diner, in Lakeport area. RT 3 from the airport, just after Shaw's, the Union Diner is on the left. Great food. Busy.

Cafe DeJavu 311 Court St, Laconia, NH 03246 cafedejavunh.com Went here multiple times a year in the past. Not busy after 9am. Good size portions.

Turkey Farm, next to Laconia Harley. Good Buffett. Not cheap, but plenty of seating. A good place to park and then walk their lot, and HD's lot.

Please add your places !!!

Hey all,
I have the week of June 11-15 off from work and have never been to Laconia so am thinking about doing a loop trip through Maine and then hitting Laconia for a day or two on the way back south. Are there campgrounds where someone can just "show up" with a tent and get a place to stay? Recommendations on good ones?
Alternatively, if folks have a house and would be willing to let me set up in the yard for a night or two i would chip in some money or beer!
Appreciate any info folks have.
Cheers!
Ian

Road update - Main roads are all in decent shape, 104, 3, 106, 16 (has some rough areas in the north), 25, 10, 11, 2, all OK - have some issues on 109, 113 is very rough in spots, 175 is rough - 16 through center Conway is rough - 153 is rough in spots - 302 is in good shape - the crews are out so improvements happen daily - if you are planning on a specific ride and want information stop in Laconia Harley, the Local HOG chapter has a booth on the right at the main entrance, we are not a chapter that rides to a coffee shop and home, the average weekly ride is 200 miles so they know the area and the roads, more than willing to tell you where to go As it stands I'll be working the Demo trailer Wednesday (I'll be the one telling them if they want the best ride to take the Road Glide ...) - Other members will be leading the Mt Washington Ride on Thursday, as well as a bunch of others - they are local guys that know the area so again if you see the Winnipesaukee HOG 2529 Patch - need information don't hesitate to ask them......

Thanks for the update Laconia !!!!

I am interested in Rt 118. I know parts were re-done a few years ago. Interest is from Rt 4 to Rt 25, then the Rt 25 to Rt 112 section. I did this second part probably in 2014. Awesome twisty, but was in less than good shape then.

===================
Patio Garden music schedule now posted. Nice smaller outdoor venues. Easy to get beverages and seats. Sound not too loud. At the very least, I will be there Sunday afternoon for Manchuka !

Glad you are visiting !

As Bike Week is a bit pre-season for summer tourists, except for the immediate Weirs area, you should have no problems getting a campground tent spot. For the Weirs area, the two weekends could be a problem. Although I don't follow camp ground availability, I would suggest searching that out, and making a reservation in advance for those days.

Edit- I just noticed that the Hill Climb at Gunstock promo mentions camping on site. I would contact them, see what they got. 20 minutes from Weirs.

Update: 12 Days to go !!!

I asked Tower Hill to post their lineup to their web site. They sent me a text of the line-up. Which I can't copy and paste here. That was a week ago. Best I can say, is they have music all week, and use their Facebook, or send them a text.

Broken Spoke music lineup is posted, link below. A bit more than years past, of the same people over and over. I give them points for the other New Events they are running. But, I like to see different acts. Personally, I hate parking in the woods, dirt, rocks, and roots. But, this is a favorite spot for many in our crew. If it's raining during the afternoon, we are probably on the porch.....
It's my round, can I have 10 BL, 3 CL, 2 Heavies, 1 ML, 1 Angry O, and 2 Chickalobes.....
