Americade is the world's largest motorcycle touring rally! Located in Lake George, New york. . I'm pre registered for Americade this year so I can pick up my pass on Monday, tent camp at Adirondack village 2 miles away Monday and Tuesday nights, and be first in line at 6:00AM to sign up for demo rides. First bike on the list will of course be the new Honda CBR500R. I also joined the Riders Of Kawasaki club for $30 per year which includes roadside and towing for all 4 of my bikes, admission to the VIP tent for back pack check service and refreshments, and priority on demo choices. I will see them at Americade and again at Mid Ohio in July. Kawasaki has one of the biggest traveling demo programs in the USA. I would like to ride the new Ninja300 (even though I will be trading my Ninja250 for one soon) and the new gen Ninja650 (updated for the second time last year). Also on my list would be the NC700X and an automatic CTX if they had one but that bike isn't really out yet so it will probably be a static display as the NC was last year. If I get time I wouldn't mind trying a BMW GS650G which are probably the last bike anyone signs up for when the think of BMW. Ducati brings a lot of bikes and has half naked girls hanging around to chit chat. I hope Kymco brings a Downtown 300i but they only had the smaller scooters there last year. People at a cruiser rally ( Honda will flip you the keys to a brand new GoldWing and Harley brings a ton of bikes) don't have any interest in scooters so the Kymco demos just sit there for the taking with no appointment or line. Yamaha doesn't make a bike I am interested in other than the Majesty but I didn't see them or the Suzuki tent last year or I would try to get on a V-Strom. . The vendor section is ok but I was hoping for Revzilla or similar to be there with high end sport touring clothes and boots but there was nothing like that. Kuryakyn has a huge tent with every gizmo and dress up part for a cruiser and plenty of leather. It's amazing how busy the dynos and techs stay. People wait all year just for this event to get their bikes serviced or to have new pipes installed and tuned. The cops are nice enough to let you spend all of your money before giving out tickets for loud pipes on your way out of town.
