    Thumbs up May 13th, 2011 - Port Dover, Canadia

    Every Friday the 13th in Port Dover.

    Huge party.

    My chopper buds go everytime. I have always wanted to go but couldn't for some reason or the other. May 13th weekend I'm off.

    Let's ride boys!

    We can camp or motel it... depending on interest.


    Will see if I can get some eastern guys to meet us there on one of my other sites TWFix

    The Canadians I have met warned that the event is HUGE! They seem to shy away. Sounds cool. As I've never been, just fair warning.....

    I spoke to one of my buds that went in the fall (Aug maybe) version. Said to take 3 out there instead of 401. Much nicer ride I guess. Adds 50mins to the 4 hr ride

    Route 3 vs Hwy 401

    Yeah it's a good sized event I guess. Much of it being a big drunk sloshing I'm sure.

    I went on a trip through that area last year on Aug Fri 13th not knowing about the event. I left here followed the lake along to Niagra then into upstate New York. I couldn't believe all the bikes passing us going in the opposite direction. Finally ended up stopping at a place and talked to some riders from Quebec that were headed to Dover. They went every year. Said there is usually about 100,000 people show up from all over US and Canada.
    Oh and don't worry about the ride. It sucks. Flat straight and very little to see no matter how you go. So just get there

    Rumored to be the biggest rally in Canada, automatic every Friday the 13th. Spills over into Saturday as well, you'll find lots of older Brit and Metric bikes, always a good show! Only date next year is May, an if you hope to make a reservation you better call quick, most rooms are rebooked as the parties leave the current rally. Oh, and 3 is a much more scenic route than the 401 anyday. You can cross at Detroit, Algonac,( which is very conveniant for me), Marine City or Port Huron. In years past "Rocky's" the H.D. dealer in London used to offer free breakfast Friday mornings of the Rally, will have to check and see if that is good to go or not, will post at later date.

    No Canadian trips for me either.

    Border patrol doesnt seem to like me and the feeling is mutual.
