Laconia Motorcycle WeekLaconia, New Hampshire
June 14-22, 2014
Laconia is the oldest motorcycle event in the US and it started with only a few hundred riders gathering at Weirs Beach in 1916. Over the next seven years, the gathering and the number of races and hill climbs grew to the point to where in 1923 the Federation of American Motorcyclists (now the AMA) recognized the Laconia motorcycle rally as an official Gypsy Tour event.
Laconia Bike Week General Info
Now the Laconia bike week is by far the largest of the New England motorcycle rallies and is one of the largest in the US. Laconia is also one of the "Big 3" Bike Rallies (the other two are Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Daytona Beach Bike Week) and is on the 2014 Lightning Customs' Major Motorcycle Rally List.
New Hampshire and the surrounding regions offer some incredible rides and you can check them out on your own or you can sign up for a number of guided rides, including the Gypsy Tours and Rides, charity rides, and runs.
Motorcycle Week Attractions
Although there are events and attractions all over the surrounding area for the Laconia Motorcycle Week, the hub is at Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee. Some of the other venues are the NHMS/New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Broken Spoke Saloon, Lobster Pound, Laconia Roadhouse, Naswa Resort, Paradise Beach Club, and the dealerships.
The racing and hill climbs were the foundation of the early Laconia motorcycle rally and they are still big draws today. You can check out the NHMS/New Hampshire Motor Speedway website to get details on the different races and their schedule. A couple of the many good races to check out are the Loudon Classic (the longest running motorcycle race in the country) and our favorite is the vintage motorcycle races.
At the bars, venues, and dealerships you will be able to hear plenty of live music including from top name acts (Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels, and Foghat played in 2013). Other big attractions for you to check out will be the bike shows like the Laconia Bike Show, a one week from the ground up bike build off, a ride-in bike show, and other bike shows.
With Laconia Motorcycle Week being one of the premier motorcycle rallies, there will be top notch displays and demo rides available from all of the major motorcycle manufactures, big rig set ups by major parts and accessory manufacturers and distributors, and of course tons of vendors selling everything you could want. There are hot ladies you can check out at the Ms. Motorcycle Week and Miss Laconia bikini contests, contests at the bars, and there will also be the hot promotions girl teams from Budweiser, Jagermeister, and Twisted Tea.
-FEES: You will need to check with each venue to get the fees. There is a shuttle between some venues, but check for the rates as the rally’s date approaches.
