Rally News – Letter from the Rally President 2021

Welcome Bikers! Let’s Ride Again!

It’s hard to believe we are approaching the 98th Laconia Motorcycle Week Rally — quickly closing in on 100. We are certain you are planning to add this legendary event to your riding and travel schedule!

We missed so many friends last year due to the pandemic and are grateful that the rally happened despite being rescheduled to August. Thank you to all those who came… and to those who could not, including our international visitors, we welcome you back this year as part of the tradition!

At 96-years young, my mother Hope, is also a part of that tradition. She remembers riding with my father, Peter, until well after his 80th birthday — and they both enjoyed the energy and action that this rally brings to our town. You’ll see many of his fellow Leathernecks here, supporting the Peter Makris Memorial Run, the “Official Kickoff to Laconia Motorcycle Week on Saturday, June 12, which has become another part of the fabric and legacy of Laconia Motorcycle Week.

NH  provides just the elements our souls have been craving to bring us back to our roots–open roads, fresh air, the best way to social distance as we ride together responsibly with new and old friends. The biker camaraderie is part of the attraction of motorcycling in NH, along with the outstanding support from local businesses and the beauty of the Seacoast, White Mountains, lakes and quaint small towns, all the heralds of our “Live Free or Die” State of NH.

We are full of GRATITUDE for YOU — the riders who make this rally and State proud! Thank you also to all first responders for keeping us safe. We respect and admire our police, fire and healthcare workers—all those who make the oldest rally in the country safe and fun.

As a proud third generation Greek, I draw on my heritage and our use of the word “Agape,” which is the highest form of love—selfless, unconditional and deep.

We LOVE YOU and appreciate YOU — you are the lifeblood of our Rally and the reason we are working toward our 100th anniversary in just two more years. See you THIS year and into the next! YOU are why we say, “In Laconia, We Ride!”
