Hey upstater's!Adirondak Dual Sport ride!!

All right guys,a couple of us been talk'n over in lay'n down tracks.There seems to be alot of us Upstate New York dual sport riders,and we thought maybe it would be a good idea to plan a dual sport ride in the park.
It was brought up that maybe the weekend of the Americade[June 6th]those who were interested would meet up and do a day or two of ride'n.
So if anyones interested please speek up.
We'll need suggestions on routes,different times if Americade isn't doible,etc etc.
So speak up!!!Tell us what you think.

upstate dual sport

I'd sure like to get in on this if you're able to put a route together. keep in mind that most of the land is state owned/managed and doesn't allow any motorized vehicles. I may be able to help a little with the route. maybe we can meet up sometime.

I'm interested in this as well. I know some of the dual sport rides were sponsered by BMW and done through a local dealer where my son works. We didn't participate in the rides and most likely they were closed routes for Americade only. I will send him this link as well so he can chime in. I know some trails and roads south of the park, some are offroad truck club routes and some are state trails going over into Vermont. I do know offroad truck groups run in the adirondacks often so there are trails available to ride on.

This is what we need.
Dual sport guys tour too.I think for me a dual sport run at Americade would give it a shot in the arm,its been get'n stail.
I camp up at Lake George Resort[ext 24 I-87]every year.Maybe a could place to meet up.

I'm not the big hero section guy,but thats just me.At this point were just try'n to put something together.
Most of the guys that have been answer'n this post are thumper riders,atleast thats what i see.
If we can get something together,as far a good route,i'm sure we can put it together with optional routes.

I just got the stuff for Americade in the mail.It starts the 2nd of June,but i'm think'n the weekend would be a good time[6th].
I'm not far from Max's[Wynantskill].So stay tuned.

If I'm around that weekend (unclear yet, will know in a month or so), I'd definitely be up for a ride Americade weekend. I live on the Troy/Brunswick border, so it's not exactly a huge hike for me.
