I've been thinking of sponsoring a ride in. Bike Week ( Laconia Bike Week ) is the oldest bike week in the nation.
Once a year, NH turns into biker heaven for 10 straight days. Everything from the Loudon Classic races to the hill climbs are to be had. Washington Mountain is even closed to motorcycle traffic only. It's,,,well,,, a little nut's actually.
My shop is only a half hour from Loudon and the other festivities. I could probably put up a dozen or so camper trailers and twice that in tent type hard cores. Plenty of hotels and State Parks within 5 minutes of the shop.
If there was enough interest, I'd organize a ride in. It would have to be a full on "member ride in" to make it worthwhile. Heck, we even have trucks to use as chase vehicles and to run people back and forth to hotels and " Drinking Events ".
Heck, I'd even have our uniform company make up T-shirts and patches for the event.
If the Hell's Angel's can "Iron Butt" ride from California to attend, you'd think our members could manage to come.
Just a thought, I'm willing to organize and host it if people are willing to come.
