    My experience is that those who preach tolerance/diveristy the most tend to be the most intolerant out there. Extremely hypocritical.

    It's one thing to talk the talk, but when it effect them directly it's a different story.

    I always saw bike week as a novelty, and I had some fun in Daytona and Laconia in my 20’s (when tits we’re still on display everywhere you looked). The novelty wears pretty quickly though.

    Re: Fuck Bike Week

    Iím going to bike week for the first time this year since having my license in 05. Back then I thought sport bike riders werenít welcome abs my bike would get knocked over just for being Japanese.

    Now Iíll be on an American bike, but donít think itís really that crowd.

    I hope to just go chill and drink and enjoy the ambiance.

    What am I in for?

    I think you could probably just chill and drink and enjoy the ambiance.

    The part of bike week that makes in worth a day trip is seeing custom bikes rolling around. Its not on the official calendar but a fantastic superspreading event is also planned for this year. Be sure to buy an overpriced cotton shirt and be stuck in lines and traffic, as is tradition.

    Daytime: over aged men & women dressing as disgustingly outlandish as they can while riding (parking) the most gaudy bikes they can.

    Nightime: frat/sorority party

    All bikes welcome. I went many times on sportbikes and never had an issue. Park, walk around, people watch & take in the spectacle.

    I certainly mean no offense to our local racers. But national races pulling out pretty much killed it for me. I spent A LOT of time at the track during Bike Week back in the 90's. It used to be such an incredible event.

    Agreed Stoner. Matt Mladin refusing to race in the rain was the beginning of the end.
    That said, it was damn cool seeing a few local guys being competitive with racers that had factory rides.

    Yeah, the writing was on the wall when that happened. Either upgrade the motorcycle road racing course or lose any national event. It was DEFINITELY the beginning of the end.

    A lot of whining from the AMA guys in 2000.. Bob Bahre doubled the purse for the pro thunder class to put some bikes on the track. Still the AMA pros said no. the locals didn't care and wanted to race.. once they made it a no points event, the Pro guys said ok... I finished fifth and $1200 richer! Believe that might have been the last year for the pro guys?

    Yeah, without looking I was gonna say somewhere in the '99 - '01 range. The AMA pro's were being a bunch of pussies for a couple years by that point. When they finally bailed, I gave up all fucks for the AMA Superbike series.

    They never liked the place to begin with.. then after Thomas Stevens ended his career here in a turn one incident. Plus Miguel's big one in turn six, they hated it even more.. used the rain as an excuse to stop racing! all this was before air fence and the changes to turn one and eight. i remember talk of redoing the bowl but cost vs payback it never came about!

    They had actually started to install air fence in some areas, but it was scarce then. A lot of the complaints were about the tire walls and lack of run-off (gravel pits), even in the areas that had air fences. Again, going by memory here. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    They might have been cunty about it, but they weren’t wrong. Loudon is still a pretty unsafe track.
