Yes, I rode over to Lake George a couple of years ago. Great riding around the area. I spend about 3 hours looking around at the swap meet stuff and spent the rest of the time riding.

Mostly couples on touring bikes pulling trailers. Everyone seems to have a lot of fun. About 50K people show up for it.

I would never go back unless I took a girlfriend. There's a lot to do besides ride which I didn't do any of. ;)

Yep...from what I saw. They are pretty good about answering questions if you email them at info@americade.com

I still get flyers from them wanting me to come back. You can check out their website if you haven't already.. www.americade.com

What say you on making ROD lV have an unofficial dualsport/enduro challenge race...only for those that choose to do so?

I had planned on taking my girlfriend but she had just started a new job about a month earlier and they wouldn't let her take off.
I had planned on stopping by Niagara falls and had a room booked over looking the falls and everything. I had already pre-paid for the cabin near lake George so I went by myself and just rode around the whole time. I was on my ST1300 and met some other STers there and had dinner one night. Everything worked out in the end. Don't have that girlfriend anymore but have some new friends that I met there. ;)

Yep. I grew up south of Lake George in upstate NY. Went to Americade '99, home and then back to party at Laconia @ Weirs Beach a week later. Worlds apart in atmosphere! Americade was great. I'd go back again, for sure!

RoadDad... you requested this on 8-15-2010 me thinks... so, as not to disappoint.

After we returned from the CDR, I loaded my pics and erased my SD cards. 2 days later my computer hard drive crashed, along with everything on it.
4 days ago I finally restored to the best of my ability, a few of my pics and video.

Perfect timing as well... I just got a new editing program to play with...

It's a little long winded... but it matches my Dad and his bud's conversation skills... All 12 minutes of it...

To Plate or Not To Plate

Does anyone here have any experience licensing a two stroke motorcycle in Indiana? The bike is a 2011 KTM 300. I have not yet seen the title but I'm told it is a "Kentucky Certificate of Title" Whatever that means. The bike is in stock form without a headlight, taillight, or a brake light.

The reasoning for wanting a street tag is to be able to participate in some dual sport events. I'm trying to decide if it would be worth the cost and hassle of dealing with the DMV.

If I end up getting this bike will I need a permit of some kind to be able to ride Redbird or Inner Lake?

Thanks

yes, it can be done. i did it to my 01 ktm 300 mxc. 05 or newer will require whatever paperwork (title, coo, off road title) manufacturer assigned to that vehicle. 04 or older just needs a bill of sale. of course... bike needs to be clean.

there are a few forms you will need from bmv, once all forms are completed you will need to have vin checked by police or bmv rep (really helps if you know someone).

it can be done, just be patient and willing to make a few trips to bmv, but most importantly... get that title from po in ky... without that.. being that its a 2011.... you will be ass out!

no.. once your 300 is plated, thats all you will need.

KaTooMer Passenger Pegs...

I was wondering if anyone here has any experience in adding passenger pegs to their KaTooMers by chance? Now before y'all go nuts and give a big lecture about how passengers should be on their own bike or that the 520EXC "Punkin' Chucker" subframe can't handle the extra weight of a passenger, please note that it's for my 9 year old daughter that really wants to go to some of the places that I come home and tell her that I've been. She thinks the world of Daddy's "ADVrider friends" and loves to check out each and every photo/video that I come up with after a good ride, whether it's with you guys or off by myself riding to work and back. I already have plans of getting the seat on this bike redone (both my for my hindend & a lightweight passenger's) but am having kind of a rough time trying to come up with idea for passenger peg mounting. I can fabricate most anything if I could see something that looked like a good idea and I felt comfortable about using it. Probably the best ones that I've seen are made by CrossPlane but they hook to the rider's pegs and I dunno what it is, but they seem unsettling to me. Normally I would just weld tabs to the subframe and go steal the pegs off from my good buddy oPAULo's DRZ400SM and bolt them on... but the right side of the Punkin' Chucker's subframe makes this trickier than normal because of exhaust guard/sidecover placement. Any other ideas??
