Laconia is one of my favorite events. It has a built in old school feel, partially because it is (according to rally officials) "the oldest bike rally in the world," and also because of the attitude. I think its a New England thing that, even though I left 36-years ago for the west, is still a part of me. It can get a bit "in your face" if you come from a more gentile part of the country, but if you allow yourself to accept it, you'll see pretty quick it is very honest.

He just got the old Shovelhead running with a little help from his friends.

This is the old Drive-In sign by the Weirs.

The guys in this tattoo parlor at the top of the road were much more quiet than in past years. Usually you here the buzz going all day long but the economy must be taking a toll. If you are in town and looking for work, be sure to pay them a visit.

View from the tower early in the week. There was a lot of rain, so it didn't look like this as much this year.

Dave Perewitz riding with Rene Brown on a very cool 45" 1937 Flathead Bobber that Dave built. Dave is loving this old school revival! He doesn't have to dig deep to know what to build.

Coming around a curve between Alton Bay and the Weirs.

The Hillclimb in Gunstock doesn't have quite the excitement when it was the steeper narrower hill that very few crested, but the snowmobiles get pretty wild!

What can you do when you're stuck in a traffic jam?

This guy took to a different kind of smoke!
