Free Demo Rides at New Weirs Beach Venue Plus Exhibits and H.O.G. Pin Stop
MILWAUKEE (May 24, 2017) Harley-Davidson is moving to the heart of the Laconia Motorcycle Week® action with a new Weirs Beach venue that will be open for the duration of “The World’s Oldest Motorcycle Rally,” June 10-18, in scenic New Hampshire.
For the first time in years, all Harley-Davidson exhibits, events and free demo rides on new Harley-Davidson® motorcycles will be conveniently located directly across the street from the entrance to the drive-in across from the Weirs Beach landmark sign on Endicott Street North.
“Since 1918, the annual run to Laconia has been a defining event for riders in the Northeast,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum® and great-grandson of Harley-Davidson co-founder William A. Davidson. “As this historic gathering of riders approaches its centennial celebration, Harley-Davidson has teamed with Laconia Mayor Ed Engler, local businessman Al Mitchell and Laconia Harley-Davidson owner Anne Deli to secure a fabulous new location near the lake for Harley Headquarters.”
