Nice!!The vendor presence in Warrensburg keeps growing, including Dunlop installs this year. One new vendor there I won't name informed me that he would have had to do a steady business for the first 3 (out of 5) days just to pay the rent at Tour Expo. I noticed many companies that used to display at Tour Expo (that's Americade for anyone that's confused) that are now up in W.
Apart from that, the scene in Lake George is pretty cool, despite unbelievable temps in the 90's for 2 days. The better restaurants are still open & the bike watching is like nowhere else.
Loads of people, including myself, are preparing for Laconia and Mt. Washington Bike Day next week. It'll be another great week, then I got a trip west planned, THEN I'll think about a job. Or not. Depends on the weather.
+1.....We arrived on Sunday and pulled out on Thursday morning.:thumbup:Some of you may wish to consider going early in the week and then leaving Thursday or Friday
We usually go up Monday, but this year we went up Sunday...a lot less people and much quieter. Go to the vendors early in the week
By the weekend, all the squids, day trippers and the loud, throttle blipping look at me posers show up....that is when it is time to leave town.
Also, you can often get a better rate on a motel room is you arrive earlier in the week and leave Thursday or Friday morning...lotsa people lookg for a Friday/Saturday night stay.
I agree about those obnoxious loud pipes!!! I spent four days there, and the rally was great, with that exception. I did miss my 2012 Wing demo, due to rain.You know what I re-noticed....
Harley guys with the obnoxiously loud pipes....what's the f-ing point?
I know different strokes and all...but geez o pete. These pipes now a days are so loud....it literally shakes your brain.
I liked looking at all the bikes, most everyone is very friendly and the town is very beautiful.
Good time....next year I am going to stay longer.
