It’s no secret.  I love motorcycles.  Not zip & splats but real motorcycles.  Because of this, June is my favorite month of 2013.

Why June?  Because that is when Americade (a motorcycle rally in Lake George, NY) happens, and I got to go!!!

We left on Thursday morning with a group of 10 or so and regrouped at a house.

The weather held up for the trip and we arrived after a few hours.  We set out again on Friday, and it was raining.  Now, I have been told that if you say you went to Americade and it didn’t rain, you didn’t go to Americade.

Despite the rain, we found cupcakes!!

Once we felt soggy enough we went back to the hotel & chilled out for the night with hopes of less rain on Saturday.

Our hopes were honored (for a little while) on Saturday and we headed out with a group of about 8 bikes to ride up through Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, Long Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Indian Lake and along the Hudson River back to lake George.

Less than 1/2-way to Lake Placid everyone decided to turn back (because it was going to rain) while we continued on with our rain gear safely stowed.

We started out for home on Sunday morning and, of course, it was the most beautiful day of the entire trip.

Every drop of rain was worth every moment of joy.  In addition to being on vacation, I had the honor of riding with my brothers!!
