I go every year....is it worth it? All depends on what you want...if you can miss the miles and miles or traffic it can be worth the ride...I usually go early and go the back way to miss the traffic jams. Always have fun...last year helped Steve bump-start his CB1000 after it died in the heat....its ALWAYS hot at Weirs beach!

cheers

Might be good if I have my water cooled bike up and running... Although I would have to take the CB there for the cool factor.

I think I will go on the 15th... then stay over night up in the WHite mountains and go up Mt. Washington on the 16th.  The one day in the year they only allow motorcycles up to the top.

   I've hiked Mt. Washington several times but not in ages. Is it that they allow only motorcycles on those days or that they only allow motorcycles on those days specifically...or both? Do you have to stop to re-jet? :D :D

I think that's the reason for the "Bikes Only" days.

Bikes can go up on any day cars can.  Those 2 days are "bikes only" , so you dont have to worry about idiot drivers taking up 3/4 of the road or riding down so slow you have to drag your feet for fear of tipping.
