I'm planning on being there too, at least for the Thursday ride and the Friday afternoon sidecar gathering. Sure we have all the fun, but it stopped raining 2 days ago. Now if only the temperature would warm up out of the 50's and the sun actually come out......

Hope to see some of y'all, then maybe I'll recognize you when we get to Maggie Valley.

Come on up, Ralph, and join in the fun. We'd be happy to see you in this neck of the woods

I will be leaving for Americade tomorrow at 5pm. Everything is in
place for a good time. Thursday's sidecar tour will be about 100
miles long. We will depart at 9am and should be back in town about
noon. Fridays Gathering is all set and I'm happy to report the
following door prize sponsors. Hack'd Magazine, Progressive
Suspensions, Inc., Works Performance Products, Inc., United Sidecar
Association, Operating Technical Electronics, Inc., Texas Sidecar &
Trikes, Inc., and Harley-Davidson. Dave Hannigan, may have another
surprize to show us this year. Good weather has been ordered, but no
guarantee. Hope to see you there.

Bruce.

CALLING ALL SIDECARISTS

To all current and future sidecarists, you are invited to the 6th
Annual Informal Gathering of Sidecars, at the Americade Tour & Rally
in Lake George, NY USA. We will gather Friday June 9th between 3pm
and 6pm, at the south west corner of Fort George Battleground Park
under the large Willow trees, off of West Brook Road, to kick tires,
share stories, take pictures, ask questions, see and be seen. All
sidecars are welcome, new, antique, high performance, home built, one
off, unique, and bizarre. If it has one wheel on the side, we want
to see it.

This event has grown from 11 sidecars the first year, to 50 last
year. From the early inquiries, we should top that this year. In
addition to the reasons we gather listed above, the Gathering has
also become a source of information for people wanting to get
involved in this part of the sport, but want to see and ask questions
before taking the plunge. Everyone at the Gathering has been most
helpful in sharing their experiences and knowledge. If this applies
to any of you, drop on by and say hello. Ask all the questions you
want, we'll be glad to provide answers the best we can.

We have been getting a nice selection of rigs, from antique to
modern, cruisers to tourers and high performance flat cornering G-
force generators. If you're not sure the type of sidecar you want,
you will get a good idea of what's out there, from what shows up at
this event.

We plan to have a nice selection of door prizes to hand out this
year, as well as some new sidecar product brochures and sidecar event
information. I thank the following door prize sponsors for supporting
this event. Hack'd Magazine, United Sidecar Association, Progressive
Suspension, Works Performance Products, inc., Operating Technical
Electronics Inc., Harley-Davidson, Texas Sidecar.

On Thursday June 8th, I will lead sidecarists on a leisurely informal
ride through the Adirondacks. We will leave from the parking lot of
the Prospect Mountain Diner at 9am. The diner is located on Canada
Street (Rt. 9) just south of the Holiday Inn on the same side of the
street. All sidecars are welcome, try and arrive a half-hour early
with a full tank of gas and an empty bladder.

If you have never been to Americade, check out www.tourexpo.com for
the weeks activities. Attendance is holding about 50,000, and a good
portion of them attend the Vendor area called TourExpo. Our
Gathering is close to this area, in fact we hold the Gathering in one
of the large grassy parking areas that is used for those visiting the
Vendors. Because attendance for TourExpo has been up the past few
years, the area we use for the Gathering is still pretty full of two
wheelers when our event starts at 3pm. Try and get as close as you
can when you arrive, and move in closer as the two wheelers leave. I
will have signs out directing sidecarists to the general area under
the large Willow trees.

Here are some other sidecar activities for the week and they will all
be held at Roaring Brook Ranch. Sidecar judging on Wednesday at 9am.
A seminar on touring & sport sidecar riding by David Hannigan on
Thursday at 3pm.

Even if you can't spend a few days at Americade, don't let that stop
you from dropping by the Gathering on Friday and spending a few hours
with like minded motorcyclists. We'd love to see you.

For additional information, contact Bruce D. Stephens at
B_L_Stephens@netzero.net.
