    I ride mostly on Long Island, and I pretty much only ride alone or with my dad, which is fun, but I am looking for some new people to ride with. As soon as the weather turns I want to plan a day trip out to Orient Point. Are there any riders from New York that are interested in joining me on this scenic trip?

    Also I am planning a trip this summer, probably in July, up route 9 to Canada. Any one interested?

    You know, if you schedule that trip up Route 9 to be in Lake George between June 1-6, you can hit Americade. It's a great, family-oriented tour rally, and Lake George is right on Route 9. I always go, if there are at least 3 straight days of decent weather in that week. I'd be glad to meet up with you. It can be cold riding that time of year up here, though (Two years ago, I headed out of Syracuse on I-90 at 5:00 AM heading to Americade, and it was 36 degrees F out. The ride was brutal.). I'm sure that others on this forum will be going there too. You'll probably read more about it over the next couple of months. Here's a link.

    Something to think about...

    Funny you should mention that because I found out about Americade on the website for the Long Island chapter of Star Touring and Riding. I am most definitely going to be heading up there for that event, and I am going to try to get my old man to come as well. Let's definitely try to meet up at some point during the week. I have never ben to one and I was checking out the site and man, those guided and unguided tours look really awesome. Have you gone on any of those?

    Nope, never went one one of the tours, 'cuz I lived in Albany for a number of years and rode all over up there. Riding in the Adirondacks rocks! Be glad to catch up with you (and other forum folks) when the time comes.

    Sounds good. I will be registering for Americade with my pop this weekend. I'll see you there!

    Check out southerncruisers.net.
    These people are international.

    Their organization is free to join, and they do not care what kind of bike you ride, just as long as you DO ride.

    I've been going up to the Americade in Lake George ever since I can remember and I've been on many of those guided tours, they are run very well. I always take my wife with me on that one because it's always a quality run rally (no shenanigans!) Make sure you make your motel reservations early (now) or you will find you will have to stay way out of town...I always stay in Bolton Landing every year which is 12 miles North, but that's by choice...Have a good time when you go up, I don't think you want to hang around with us (we're old folks at 71, probably older than your dad)
