The Story: It builds up all week. By late afternoon Thursday, bikes are overheating and backed up over a mile waiting to get into the Weir’s. They turn their engines off and coast down the long hill along the Lobster Pound. They tell stories and jokes. Visitors and locals line this gauntlet as they cheer, heckle and taunt. Occasionally their cries are answered with a burnout or dropped top. It is part of their week and part of the fun.
