RoadRUNNER’s Americade Events

One of our favorite events of the year is just a few days away—Americade!

Celebrating its 35th year, the Americade Motorcycle Rally will take place June 6 – 10 in beautiful Lake George, NY. Here’s a few of the things we’re looking forward to:

Following George Wyman Crossing the Mississippi Zero MotorcycleFollowing George A. Wyman: Tracing the First Transcontinental Road Trip
In 1903, George A. Wyman attempted something crazy—he rode his motorized bicycle from San Francisco to New York City along train tracks and dirt roads, becoming the first person to cross the country with a motorized vehicle. The trip was so grueling he was in bandages for weeks afterward.

In 2016, RoadRUNNER’s John M. Flores decided to follow the exact same route on a Zero DSR electric motorcycle. At Americade, he’ll be sharing two exciting tales spanning 113 years.

Where: Fort William Henry Conference Center
When: Thursday, 6/8, 7 – 8 p.m.

The Expo
We love seeing old friends and making new ones. Come say hi! RoadRUNNER’s Florian Neuhauser and Ashley McDowell will be at booth #715-716 at Million Dollar Beach.

This is a great opportunity to check out the latest products from companies like Klim, Wolfman, and Cardo, and get in-person advice about fit and installation. Some vendors even offer onsite installation of your purchase.

When: Tuesday, 6/6 – Friday, 6/9, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday, 6/10, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Demos
Americade boasts more motorcycle and trike demos and displays than any other event in the U.S. We’re excited to check out the latest from Ducati, Honda, Moto Guzzi, Indian, Harley, Zero, and more. For the first time in a few years, BMW will be there, too.

Demos fill up fast and most take place from Fort William Henry, so get there early and be prepared—have your motorcycle license and proper riding gear ready.

Where: Fort William Henry Demo Area
When: Tuesday, 6/6 – Friday, 6/9, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, 6/10, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

You can find an entire list of events online. We hope to see you there!
