Glad you had a good time at Americade. We "locals" appreciate all two wheeled visitors. Living locally, it is a blast to be close to the excitement. To see all the different cycles on Canada street is really cool. Having all the vendors here gives a chance to see their products up close. A lot of great riding in the Adirondacks and Vermont as you found out. Rich is correct, it tends to rain during at least part of Americade, just like in the fall for the balloon festival. Regardless, the rain was scattered, and I don't think it ruined the rally. Speaking of rallies, don't forget Vstrom weekend in New Hampshire August 3-5!
