|For those of you who could not join us for the 10th Annual Informal Gathering of Sidecars at the Americade Tour & Rally in Lake George, NY last year, please join us this year for our 11th event. We will meet on Friday June 10th from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM, on the grounds of the Adirondack Camping Village to kick tires, share stories, take pictures, ask questions, see and be seen, etc. For camping reservations or directions to the campground, see www.adirondackcampingvillage.com .
We will be gathering in the campground recreation area just outside the campground proper and you will not incur any fees to attend. All sidecars are welcome, new, antique, high performance, home built, one off, etc. If it has three wheels we want to see it. Come out and see who built what since last year. Solo motorcyclists coming with sidecar friends are also welcome, but we ask that you park in the campground gravel parking lot, since the field where the sidecars park is soft sandy soil.
Last year’s attendance was down slightly due to the questionable weather, but we still had over thirty five participants. 2009 had almost 60. Come visit with old friends and even make some new ones. Or meet the people you may have talked to from the Internet Sidecar Owners Klub, the United Sidecar Association, the High Performance Sidecar Club, or other Internet sidecar clubs, but never met in person. We will try and have some nice door prizes and hand outs as usual.
On Thursday June 9th we will lead sidecarists on a leisurely informal ride through the Adirondacks. We will leave from the parking lot of the Adirondack Camping Village at 9 AM. All sidecarists and their solo motorcyclist friends are welcome. Try and arrive a half-hour early with a full tank of gas and an empty bladder. Our rides always include a lunch and pit stops
For those who have the time, the Americade Tour & Rally starts on Monday June 6th and runs to Saturday June 11th. There are many guided and self guided tours, a charity poker run, scavenger hunt, factory demo rides, boat cruises, seminars, speakers, fashion shows, judging, and over 400 vendors in two locations. The sidecar judging will be on Tuesday June 7th. For more information on Americade, go to www.americade.com .

My wife said she is going to leave me if I buy another motorcycle. I'm sure going to miss her helping me load the trailer.
