    Default Americade Question

    Does anyone know whether Americade (held in June in Lake George, NY) typically has any Spyder-related presence? Such as Spyder-related vendors, group rides, etc?

    Thanks!

    I haven't heard that BRP has a presence but the Spyderquest committee (and extended friends) are always there in force. We usually use the time to pre-ride and scout out rides for September.

    Two years ago there was Spyder sales in the Fort William Henry parking lot. Last year there were more Spyder's than ever in Lake George because of riders going home from the Quebec
    homecoming, I was one. But I did not fine any Spyder dealers or vendors anywhere.

    I figured they put all the effort into homecoming. Except no independent vendors were allowed in Valcourt.

    I have no idea where Leon found demo rides in '17. I walked around in the rain for three days looking for a friendly place to hide. I'll be there again this year with some other's for a five day stay. I would like to see some representation but the vendor costs are quite high for Americade.

    They have demo rides from other brand names of motorcycles, example H.D. Yamaha, Honda, etc. Deanna

    The dealer in Hudson Falls, NY is a family run, extremely well liked by locals with excellent service. They fixed my RTS when it went into limp mode last summer.

    Yup - They're my local dealer and I'm quite happy with them so far. (I've been a Spyder owner for only about 7 months.) Good to hear that Americade offers some Spyder-related merchandise as well.

    The Can Am demo fleet is always there at the Ft William Henry HQ. The dealer in Hudson Falls is Progressive, a large competent dealer with great customer service and a large selection of clothing and accessories. Some of the guided mini-tours are slanted towards trikes. There are a few vendors with Spyder items, but not many. Check the official registration material when it's released at tourexpo.com.

    There is also Artic Adventures in Rosendale, New York. I don't know if they were @ Americade last year.

    BRP was not at Americade last year, but it was the first year not there since 2008. Weren't at a lot of places last year cause of putting all there advertising money in Valcourt. I expect they will be this year, but who knows.
