Kids are in no danger whatsover during Motorcycle Week

To the editor,

Mrs. Baggaley, you have to be kidding me when you call the Weirs ground zero. The kids in the Weirs are safer than ever during Motorcycle Week. There is no difference between that week than any other part of the summer. If you had asked, I bet those "scary bikers" would have escorted the seniors all the way to their graduation. What makes you think people are in "harms way" down there? You watch way to much TV.

To the editor,

Mrs. Baggaley, you have to be kidding me when you call the Weirs ground zero. The kids in the Weirs are safer than ever during Motorcycle Week. There is no difference between that week than any other part of the summer. If you had asked, I bet those "scary bikers" would have escorted the seniors all the way to their graduation.

As for drunk driving and and dangerous behavior, that goes on every weekend way before the bikers even get here. You must have been down there yourself to claim all this nonsense. There is nothing wrong with the motorcycle lifestyle. Bikers pay good money for these motorcycles, they aren't just given away and those people bring a lot of money to New Hampshire, especially the Lakes Region. And for your information there are hundreds of kids in the Weirs on Motorcycle Week with and without their parents having a good time.

You should lighten up. I'm a woman and I go there by myself every year and I'm not afraid in the slightest. In fact, I feel very safe there. Let the Inter-Lakes kids graduate where they want to and be proud of them, I certainly am.
