Recap: 2015 Americade RallyThe Nation’s Premiere Touring Rally –

Every year during the first week of June the sleepy vacation town of Lake George, NY, is transformed in to the center of the motorcycle universe. The town’s main street becomes a continuous parade as hundreds of motorcycles of all types cruise the strip. Down by the beach (on the waterfront of Lake George) hundreds of vendors assemble in tents to offer rally goers anything and everything motorcycle related. Major OEMs like Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, Harley-Davidson, Indian, Can-Am, and more were on-site offering test rides to prospective buyers.

As usual, RoadRUNNER Magazine was on hand to support America’s largest touring rally. The magazine sponsored two dinners in the White Lion room of the historic Fort William Henry hotel, which provided a great opportunity for RoadRUNNER staffers to mix and mingle with fellow touring enthusiasts. RoadRUNNER’s Managing Editor, Florian Neuhauser, also gave an inspired talk on what it’s really like to be a motorcycle journalist. RoadRUNNER’s special Americade Tour Map was a smashing success with five fantastic routes centered in Lake George giving riders the chance to enjoy the area’s spectacular roads.

Weather for the 2015 Americade was cool, and aside from a few rain showers the first couple of days, nice and sunny. Thousands of riders reveled in the weeklong celebration of motorcycle touring with big name concerts, comic shows, riding demonstrations, and so much more.

If you’ve never experienced the Americade, make plans now for 2016!
