Honda Demo Rides
If plan on visiting Americada in northern New York this month, you’ll have an opportunity to demo plenty of new Honda models. American Honda provide demo rides for attendees of the Americade Rally, which begins June 6 and runs through June 11 in Lake George, New York.
With a massive amount of entertainment for everyone, from trade shows, conventions to guided tours, this just adds a bit more fun while checking those legendary Adirondack Park roads. So what will be on the menu? Honda offer rides from its 2016 lineup, including the new VFR1200X and CRF1000L Africa Twin, as well as the Gold Wing, F6B, CB1100F, CBR1000RR, NC700X, CB500X, CBR300R and plenty more..
If you aren’t in the Lake George region, there will be two other opportunities for testing VFR1200X and Africa Twin during MotoAmerica’s Barber Motorsports Park and Laguna Seca Raceway rounds. Barber kicks off on June 10-12 in Birmingham, Ala., where Honda World Superbike pilot Nicky Hayden will be on hand as American Honda’s special guest, putting in laps on two vintage Honda race machines from the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. Hayden will most likely be in good spirits, as he picked up a brilliant debut SBK win in Sepang a few weeks ago.
At Laguna Seca, held July 8-10 in Monterey, Calif., Hayden will be on hand again, except he’ll be a bit preoccupied with riding in the World Superbike Series’ American round.
“Honda has a long history of collaborating with Americade, and we’re pleased to give customers the opportunity to try our models on some of the best motorcycling roads in the Northeast,” said Mike Snyder, Senior Manager of Powersports Marketing at American Honda. “In addition, we’re excited to increase our level of participation at Barber and Laguna Seca, arguably the two crown jewels in the MotoAmerica series.”
