Rally Headquarters has a new location this year and can be found on the boardwalk of Lakeside Avenue, right next to the pier. Ride by and pick up information on New Hampshire's scenic destinations, guided tours, and pick up your copy of the Laconia Rally News.

Kick-Off your Laconia Motorcycle Week ® experience on Saturday with the 7th Annual Naswa's Peter Makris Memorial Run. When you return you'll be ready to head over to Weirs Beach to find hundreds of vendors, top-notch entertainment, build-offs, bike shows and biker contests.

Thrill-seekers can enjoy all of the speed and action of motorcycle racing at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway with the USCRA Vintage Races during the first weekend of the rally and then closing out the week with the 90th Loudon Classic Superbike Races.  The AMA Pro Hill Climb promises steep and speedy racing is back in Canaan, NH for 2013's rally.

In Laconia…We Ride!   So be sure to, sign up for one of the many scheduled tours such as: the daily Gypsy Tours, riding in the Rally in the Valley tours, the POW-MIA Freedom Ride, or the famous Mt. Washington Ride to the Sky! When you're done racing and riding, you'll have plenty of entertainment to keep you busy.

To wrap up your rally experience, be sure to keep an eye out for more information on a record-breaking parade to be held during the final rally weekend. After you purchase your Official souvenirs from Rally Headquarters or at any Hot Leathers tent location, stop by the Wrap & Roll party at Laconia Harley-Davidson and end your trip in style.
