YAMAHA PROVIDING DEMOS AT AMERICADE

on Friday, 13 March 2015.

The new FJ­09 will be among the fleet of motorcycles Yamaha is bringing to Americade 2015.

March 11, 2015: Yamaha’s FJ­09 is one of the most anticipated new Sport Touring bikes on the market and it will be joining the massive fleet of demo bikes at Americade June 2­6, 2015.

“Yamaha is very pleased to be bringing the all new Sport Touring FJ­09 to Americade this year and feature this model for consumer demo rides! The new FJ­09 has taken the award winning design of the FZ­09 and modified it for the Sport Touring market, “ said Marcus DeMichele, media relations manager for

Yamaha, “We’ve improved on the 847cc liquid­cooled, in­line 3­cylinder, DOHC, 12­valve ‘Crossplane Crankshaft Concept’ engine design and included touring amenities such as a height adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 4.8 gallon fuel tank. And with available hard detachable luggage, the FJ­09 is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or weekend getaways”.

Americade Director, Christian Dutcher, said “We’re excited that Yamaha is bringing the new FJ. Americade always has the most factory demos in the U.S. and Yamaha’s FJ is going to be a very popular choice among the attendees to Americade. I’m hoping to swing my leg over it.”

A full list of activities and demo providers can be seen at www.americade.com. Registration is available online through May 1, and via post entry at the Lake George's Holiday Inn.

AARON LEWIS HEADLINES AMERICADE’S NEW CONCERT SERIES

on Wednesday, 11 March 2015.

Rock and Country Star is putting the Rock into Americade’s Roll

March 6, 2015: Americade’s Concert Series brings amazing music to the shores of Lake George, Friday and Saturday of Americade Week. The headline act for the inaugural event is a Grammy­nominated, multi­platinum recording Rock & Roll and Country star, Aaron Lewis.

The Concert Series is the first event of its kind at the 33 year old event, and the motorcyclist community’s response has been very positive. “For years attendees have asked that we bring big name music to Americade,” says Americade Director, Christian Dutcher, “and there’s a lot of excitement about being able to headline Aaron in this first year. And, as a special kickoff to this concert series, we’re offering the ticket prices about about 1⁄2 the price it would normally cost to see Aaron.”

While Saturday’s line up features a fun mixture of country, rock and funk, Friday’s line up is decidedly laid back Rock & Roll, featuring one of the best Eagles tribute bands in the U.S. “We wanted to give something to everyone,” says Dutcher, “Friday is a great kickstart to the music series.”

Both nights of music are expected to sell out. A special 2 day ticket is also available. Tickets available now to Americaders. General Public can begin purchasing March 16.

A full list of activities and demo providers can be seen at www.americade.com. Registration is available online through May 1, and via post entry at the Lake George's Holiday Inn.

Putting The Tour Back Into America's Largest Touring Rally

on Friday, 30 January 2015.

With hundreds of motorcycle vendors at Tour Expo and the roar of Canada Street, it is easy to think of Americade as a “motorcycle-mall” or a seven day parade. While there is truth in these generalizations -- and reason enough to love Americade -- Americade is more.

This year, I had three days at Americade and my goal was put the “tour” back into America’s largest motorcycle touring rally.
