To make for more exciting judging, we've made some major category changes below.

Does your bike have what it takes to compete against other brands? 

Unique Americade judging trophies for all winners. 




Category and definition:

Touring - 750cc or more, fairings & windshields that offer a high degree of wind protection, large-capacity fuel tanks, torquey engines and a relaxed,  upright seating position.

Sport Touring - Sport bike performance blended with some long-distance capabilities of a touring motorcycle.

Cruiser - Long and low, often styled like motorcycles of the 1930s.
