DirtDaze Rally To Offer Most Adventure Bike Demos in U.S.

Lake Luzerne, NY
DirtDaze will feature the most adventure bike demo rides of any event in the U.S.
Suzuki, Ducati, Beta, Zero, and AJP will be onsite offering demos on pavement and single-track routes. BMW, Yamaha and Honda will offer off-site demos on pavement.

The bikes available to demo onsite span the entire range of adventure/dual-sport/enduro bikes.
Suzuki is bringing in a full factory tractor trailer that will include the NEW 2017 V-Stroms 650 and
1000, as well as a full line up of DR 400 and 650's.
Cyclewise Vermont will provide demos on the Ducati Multistrada and Scrambler, along with the electric dual sport bikes from Zero Motorcycles.
Beta will demo their rare 500 RR-S and their exciting Xtrainer on the single-track loop, along with
AJP Motorcycles who will feature their lightweight Portuguese enduro bikes.

Additionally, Christini will have their new all-wheel drive bikes on display. They will demonstrate their
amazing climbing abilities on the DirtDaze Obstacle Courses.
Demos are also available off-site on the full line of Honda and BMW adventure bikes, and the Yamaha Tenere.

-------

The DirtDAZE Adventure Bike Rally is a fun, adventurous and educational multi-day festival for dual-sport and adventure motorcycles. It is held on private property with nearby dirt roads through the Adirondacks in New York and the Green Mountains in Vermont.

The event offers on-site KTM factory demos and vendors (including companies like Twisted Throttle), professional riders offering rider training, dual sport rides to far off destinations with lunch, fun night time activities, riding games and contests.

All registered attendees can access for free the nearby Americade Expo (a 300,000 sq ft expo featuring vendors for tourers/sport tourers/cruisers, but includes a number of adventure bike-related vendors).
Registered attendees also access, for free, the Americade factory demo area (the largest collection of factory demos in the US), including Honda (and their Africa Twin) and Yamaha (and their Tenere).

The event is a brainchild of the organizers of Americade who began their addiction to bikes on dirt, on trails, tracks and ice as young foolish men. Now, they are older, still riding on the dirt and still foolish.
