I don't have much desire to go. I've been to Laconia a bunch of times, beiing from NH. It was just an hour drive away.
But I never did Daytona or Sturgis. Too big of a crowd, and it's become too commercial.
The absolute BEST biker bash I ever went to was in Clarksville, TN (Ft. Campbell area). It was fairly small (only 75 kegs of beer down in 48 hours) but was a blast. Good food, good bands, I got second in the show for my chopper. No fights. Cops were cool.
I prefer smaller rallies.Although Laconia IS a blast too. Wier's Beach area is gorgeous to ride around in. There is a bridge with a sharp peak off the main drag and you can punch up a wheelie on it even on an FLH. Of course it ends right on the main street, so you're brakes better be in good shape or you're freaking dead.
