Re: WHATS YOUR TAKE ON AMERICADE 2021??

Bob - It's been difficult to find out much information about the "Black Hills Classic" rally since outside of motorcycle circles, news items about Sturgis are few and far between. They just don't get much reporting, since it seems the general population has little interest -- and the circle seems t...

Re: WHATS YOUR TAKE ON AMERICADE 2021??

Pat - I think it's too soon to tell, but that's only my opinion. The whole fiasco over COVID-19 has got many people confused because of so much conflicting information pumped out by mainstream media outlets. My belief is that we won't really know until after the first of the year. If anything is a ...

Re: Americade 2020

I'm sad to see that Americade has been canceled. It seems that it just extended the duration of the infections and caused the failure of many small businesses. I hope Americade and Lake George merchants can survive and come back stronger than ever. It's gonna' be a struggle for sure, since the vaca...

Re: Americade 2020

With the recent NY quarantine rules requiring a 14-day quarantine process for people entering NY State from so many, many states in the USA, it has become impossible for the vendors and cycle demonstrators to conduct what was still scheduled for 2020's Americade rally to put on many favored parts o...

Re: Americade 2020

The news everyone has dreaded: Christian and the team tried very, very hard -- but the increase of coronavirus in the rest of the country -- and the number of people who come a long distance to Americade -- sealed the deal. AMERICADE CANCELED FOR 2020 LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. – Americade, the motorcycle t...

Dang! I missed it!

Missed the trip up to Lake George on Saturday a week ago. Missed talking to the bikers filling their tanks riding north on the Thruway, and stopping off in Saratoga Springs for a tank refill. Missed checking in at the Studio Motel and getting settled in. Missed gathering with friends made over the ...

Re: Americade 2020

I'm sorry I'll miss Americade 2020. I can't take off on the new dates. Notice was too short. Ryck - It's a shame the timing won't work for you. One reason the rally's been held the same week each year for the last 30-some years is so attendees could plan their vacation time well in advance, especia...

Re: Americade 2020

How will Americade 2020 handle registration cancellation and refunds? Ryck - I believe everything will be done on-line. No more waiting in a queuing line to sign the liability waiver nor checking on the contents of your package. Registration will be completed in a one-step fashion which will deligh...

Re: Americade 2020

After 37 years of Americade (nee Aspencade) it took this pandemic of huge proportions to put a wrinkle in the "World's Largest Touring Motorcycle Rally" and change its chosen date from the first full week in June -- to a later date in July. The logistical problems resulting have challenged the Dire...

Defense lawyer in death of 7 motorcyclists: Biker at fault

Sad story. I wish this was an April Fool's Day Joke! CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — One of the motorcyclists in a crash that killed him and six fellow bikers on a northwoods highway was drunk and actually was the one who hit a pickup and caused the accident, the lawyer for the truck driver charged with homic...

Congratulations! Maybe this virus-thingie keeping people at home will drive a few old-timers back to the forums. We have a L-O-N-G way to go to bring the message boards back to their former glory!

Re: BBQ near Sportline

Bob - There was a local church (Methodist, I think) that used to put on the BBQ at Sportline Powersports, and Andy DeLiveron used to post the details a couple weeks before Americade. It used to be held between ~11 A.M. and 2 P.M.on Wednesday if I recall, and was free to all who showed up. Good eats...
