The rally reverted to a 3-day weekend and would remain so until 1991, when organizers revived the week-long event after seeing the success of Sturgisí 50th Anniversary Rally in 1990.

In 1991 Laconia Motorcycle Week reclaimed the support of local businesses and the AMA as a week-long rally and the oldest gypsy tour in the country.
If this was the 95th then how could it have started in 1916? That would make it 102.
