I have been in Laconia several times. But NEVER during "bike week". Not my thing. Okay with me if it's yours.

Almost Gone

Been listening to them head back south since fairly early this morning, pretty much quiet now, just a few stragglers. I am far enough off the highway that most of the bikes are noticable but not unbearably loud, surprisingly (to me), it is the bike stereos that get my attention more often than not. By all accounts 240,000 came and spent their money, most got to go home afterward, always a few that will not be on two wheels again - 4 at last count for this year. Alcohol and bikes don't mix well, doesn't have to be the rider that was drinking either, with the crowd of bikes 'our' regular drunk drivers have a target rich environment.

A nice ride home 114 in New Hampshire is freshly paved.
This was a nice little road side resturant before they had a fire. Now that it has been redone its a bit up-puty. Still worth a stop Great buffet sunday breakfast.

Marina resturant Brattleboro VT.

Thats pretty much all my pics
Another Laconia for the history books

Place sure has changed. Thanks for the pics. The dude leaning back from the blue hair server cracked me up.

I went one year, and that was enough. I went with a few riders from work. They went to the Broken spoke and drank. They then went to another bar, and drank. They weren't alone. Then I spent 2 hours in traffic listening to those loud pipes that save lives while I covered 4 miles. I would rather just go ride - thank you.

AndyCap- Sorry to hear you had a bad time.
We usally ride the Kank one day loop the lake or run to the coast for Lobster another day. This year I just made a cannon ball run to weirs. The rest of the guys I ride with rode the Kank and pigged out at the Yankee smoke house.

Here are a few shots
I think this one may be a inmate here


This one looked like it was welded with a coat hanger and a battery charger

Should be fun, all my pirate buds are heading down early, or so they say They should have the place all scoped out by the time I get there. I got to remember my Rocky Mountain Hare Scrambles t-shirt

Acording to the news we had 200,000 riders already here this weekend. It certainly sounded that way from my home near route 28 and from the time I spent yesterday at the Speedway. I wish that I could offer up a more inviting weather forecast although it has apparently improved to show only a couple of days of rain whereas before they were predicting a weeks worth. Enjoy your visit, Ride Safe!
