So, Sucker Punch Sally’s really sucker punched me!  They claimed to have a Wet T-Shirt contest everyday at 4pm.  There was not a single one during my visit!  Very sad.   :(

After being Sucker Punched on Friday, I decided that was enough as I was going to go to Bentley’s on Saturday.  They were scheduled to have a Pin-Up Contest but I did not chance it.  In addition, the weather did not look real good and it was going to be very poor on Sunday and Monday on the ride back.

With that being said, it was time to cut the trip short and say good-bye to Laconia.

Day Nine Laconia, NH – Roanoke Rapids, NC  ~ 790 miles

Got an early start in an attempt to beat the traffic in NYC and DC!  Not to mention the rain!  NOT!

NYC was a mess and I weaved all over that place to get out and in the rain too!  Bumper to bumper traffic all the way to DC!  DC was a disaster too!  Took over 3-1/2 hours going all over the place.  Was using Waze and Google Maps for best routes but just crazy!  Hard to make any time!  Folks are just ready to travel now and they are!  Didn’t they heard that COVID was still out there and to stay home!  Guess Not!  HA!

Day Ten Roanoke Rapids – Savannah, GA  ~ 400 miles

More rain and the traffic in the early am was reasonable but by lunch time I-95 was a slow go.  Finally made it back!

In summary, it had been a long time since I had attended Laconia Bike Week.  The event is different than Daytona and Sturgis.  Really different which had its advantages and disadvantages.

One matter was certain, I enjoyed the roads, the cooler weather, the lake surroundings and plenty of other things like my first trip to the Covid Café.

Glad I was blessed to take the trip.  New England is a great place to ride in the summer.

Jock, as always, I enjoy the pics. next time you're in Va give me a shout & I can always get you on some less traveled, less traffic, routes. (OTR driver for almost 40 yrs) & could always do a meal together & even offer a place to stay.  :orange:
