Laconia Bike Week is the oldest motorcycle enthusiast gathering in the United States, with an attendance rate that has been in excess of 300,000 bikers.
It draws the full spectrum of bikers, from weekend warrior to Hell's Angel. They ride Harleys, Indians, Triumphs, Hondas, custom choppers, and every brand of crotch rocket on the market. They are old, young, loners, family folk, male, female, religious, not, fun loving, surly, and veteran, and they all have one thing in common. They love to ride.
I guess that's all that matters.
