I was thinking of maybe going to Laconia bike week this year. Who has been there and what did you think? How was the riding in the area? Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated ...Thanks
Been going with a group for the last 30 odd years. As my friends got older and moved to Fl, and other warmer climes, having been going solo for just one day. Back in the "old" days Laconia was a blast - all the traffic, bikes, girls and mucho fun. The cops did have a bad attitude and some set very poor examples of what a cop should be. The bad old days changed when a new mayor came in who also rode HDs. IMO, the cops are now much better - not looking to cause problems (after all, the dollars that flow bike week keeps this small NH town in the green), and don't think every guy/gal who rides is a murderer/rapist. They also changed the traffic patterns which led to much quieter nights (not so much fun!). Weather can be as hot as Hades or as cold and wet as you can take it. Tough getting a room near all the action as they are typically booked every year by the same groups. Great roads, bars, restaurants and scenery. All in all, well worth attending!
