I recently had a lady friend discuss going on a trip with me and of course the issue of how much clothes and stuff she could bring came up.

I do have a bagger with a tour pack but it is full of camera equipment and the saddlebags are packed solid as well.

I went shopping and ended up with a Harley Davidson ONYX Touring Bag #93300013.

Laconia City Council approves 100% parking, traffic capacity for Motorcycle Week

Council considers lifting all COVID-19 restrictions on vendors, beer tents.

Pre-pandemic parking approved for Laconia Motorcycle Week. The Laconia City Council voted Monday night to return to pre-pandemic parking and traffic flow for this summer’s Motorcycle Week.

LACONIA, N.H. — The Laconia City Council voted Monday night to return to pre-pandemic parking and traffic flow for this summer’s Motorcycle Week.

Last year, the event was scaled down and pushed to August. There were no vendor tents or big scheduled events as organizers and state officials hoped to cut down on the potential spread of COVID-19.

With Monday night’s vote, the council opened the door to having full capacity at this year’s event, which is scheduled for June 12-20.

Some council members also want to do away with COVID-19 restrictions when it comes to vendors and beer tents.

“Everything is going 100% — restaurants, bars — everything,” said Councilor Tony Felch. “There’s no reason why we shouldn’t open things up for this event.”

Others argued there should be some restrictions to limit risk as the pandemic continues.

“We’re really asking people here who have health concerns to be totally not considered, and I do think we have some responsibility,” said Councilor Henry Lipman. “Above all else is safety.”

Motorcycle Week organizers plan to revisit the issue at a special meeting in the next week or two.
