So, if you have ever just been walking around, or talking to friends, and came up with the idea, "man, I wish I had 100,000 motorcycles..." here is how you do it!
Go to Port Dover, Ontario, on any Friday the 13th during the summer!
Port Dover is a sleepy little Town, hidden on the shores of Lake Erie. Problem is, that when Friday the 13th comes along... you know what breaks out!!!!!!!
This afternoon, I did not have a big agenda, so I thought I would climb on my Honda Shadow, and travel down to Port Dover to see what all the hoopla was all about!
As you can see, I found a few motorcycles... actually, I have never seen as many motorcycles in one spot as I saw today! It was crazy... Not even Americade at Lake George, New York has this many bikes... People come from all over for this one day event! Canadians and Americans...The Main Street extends for more than 12 blocks with Bikes simply parked everywhere! You have to be here to appreciate how many are here.
That is my bike, the first one in the row above... you could park for free here, and I am a block and a half off of the Main Street. It is estimated that 100,000 motorcycles showed up today! There were almost as many Police Officers... OPP that is.... They were there on foot, on their Police ATV's, on thier Police Motorcycles, on thier Police Bicycles, in thier OPP Cruisers, and SUV's and in the OPP Helicopter! I felt safe!
Here is a little video I took of all the action! I did not stay long, and soon headed back to Woodstock... it was a great day for a ride anyways!
As most people will know by now, Kathleen Wynne and the Liberal Party of Ontario won a majority in last night's election! We are all safe from the Politicians here now for 4 years!
