Similar to the move it made in Sturgis last year, Harley-Davidson is trying out two new locations for Laconia Motorcycle Week 2011. Instead of setting up downtown, Harley will have one tent at the heart of the action at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound and another location for demo rides at Hart’s Turkey Farm next to Laconia H-D.
The Harley-Davidson Laconia Motorcycle Week location at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound at 72 Endicott Street, Route 3 North in Laconia, is a Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) pin stop with new product displays, H-D1/Fit Shop experience and JUMPSTART motorcycle experience.
Harley-Davidson demo rides on 2011 motorcycles will be available at Hart’s Turkey Farm Restaurant, 233 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith, N.H., daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rides are free, and participants must bring a valid motorcycle license, sign a release form and wear a helmet and eye protection. This location is just adjacent to Laconia Harley-Davidson at 239 Daniel Webster Highway.
Harley-Davidson activities at Laconia Motorcycle Week had previously been located at Laconia City Hall in downtown Laconia. “We appreciate the support and hospitality from the city of Laconia and the downtown community,” said Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson Director of Customer Experience. “We believe that our new locations in Laconia give us the opportunity to reach the most rally attendees as possible.”
