I have been told that this is a Big Goldwing event, not that there is anything wrong with that ........................

I went last year for the first time and had a blast. Yeah, you'll see more wings (and wing-trikes) at Americade than at other rallies, but there are a lot of Harleys too. I'd estimate 30% Wings, 30% HD, 40% 'other'. Lots of sport-touring types, too.

I guess it's a motorcycle rally as opposed to a biker rally.

More info at http://www.americade.info and http://www.tourexpo.com

You can get to the message board from either link...lots of good info and lodging, etc.

There is a lot of great riding in and around LG. I used to go and stay at the Lake George excape campground , biker friendly but the local PD and staties are not biker friendly. I got a ticket a few back for no baffles in my pipes. The bike was parked at the time they sticked the pipes as I was getting my helmet and leather on. Now my bike isnt loud as they were slip on glass pack type at the time. Also my buddy got pulled for a Non DOT helmet and pipes.They want it to be quiet rally like it was when it was Aspencade.

Now go any other time of the year and u never get pulled we go up at least twice a year and never even get a second look. I wont even go to Laconia by way of the Thruway to 90. A few guys I camp with got pulled at the toll booths last year for helmets. Americade ends the weekend Laconia starts. All in all I think u would have more fun at Laconia and save LG for a vacation
