Most of you know we just got back from a motorcycle trip to New York. Every year Lake Goerge is the host city for this annual event called the Americade that welcomes every kind of motorcycle and believe me there was every kind of motorcycle there.
We went on a dinner cruise that took us around Lake George showing us all the fancy and I mean fancy, expensive, exclusive, you name it homes. some even on little islands all to themselves. Lots of money in that part of the world. They fed us well again on the cruise and it was one of the days we didn't get rained on.
I'm not sure what kind of bike you would call this but I wanted to show you that we saw all kinds. This one has a car engine and I really don't think you can call it a true motorcycle.
There were vender's from all over with lots of goodies to buy for the bikes, kinda like a candy shop for adults who ride bikes. We had a new seat installed on ours and made several other purchases as well. I haven't heard the final count on how many bikers were there but it has to be in the thousand,. so many that cars were a minority.
The Lake George community loves the bikers and go out of their way to make getting around town as easy as possible given there are so many and it was well organized. If an event started at 6pm that was when it started. Every day there were prizes and drawings, and one night alone they gave away $30.000 in prizes. We didn't win any except we both got a hat, and enjoyed some laughs, met some nice people and got rained on almost every day. People who have attended this event says that is a given and to expect rain.
One the ride home of course the sun came out and it got really warm, so we put the rain gear away. We stopped in Niagara Falls to grab a few pictures before heading home.
Trips like this one will always be remembered for the inconvenience of the rain but also for the fun we had and the safe travels the Lord allowed us. As usual its fun to go away but nice to be home safe with lots of memories to think of a ponder over.
