Any rider worth their salt has heard of the massive motorcycle event in Port Dover, Ontario known as Friday the 13th or PD13. This event, started by a group of riding buddies who resolved to meet in Port Dover every Friday the 13th, gets bigger every year and has only just narrowly missed being on the Guinness list as the world's largest motorcycle rally. 

First timers can expect a free-for-all of custom bikes, hot leather, blinding chrome and everything brash and flamboyant in rider culture. A Mardi Gras for motorcycles, all nestled in the heart of one of Ontario's most popular tourism regions. There's even been a motorcycle route created to accommodate the hordes of bikes that flock to Port Dover when the calendar calls for it!

But why is it imperative that every single rider attend this year's event? We've got three reasons why you can't afford to miss this PD13.

1. Bragging Rights. 

If you get out there in weather like this you earn some respect. It looks like it's going to rain but you never know. Check out the Port Dover Maple Leaf webcam live from Main street to see what's happening now.

2. It's the Perfect Excuse to Ride some of the great riding roads in Ontario's Southwest and Norfolk County

It's not just about the raucous event, it's about getting there and back. Turn it into a three or four-day tour around Lake Erie.

3. It's a Bad-Ass Way to Kick off Motorcycle Season in Ontario

After a long winter, there's no better way to start the season than at PD13. You might as well sign off with a bang! Sure it'll be frickin' cold but the next one is in July, then it'll be too hot! Might as well get the best of both worlds.

There are plenty of other great reasons; meeting new people, hooking up with friends you've missed, sampling the food and getting the t-shirt, but perhaps none better than THIS IS FRIDAY THE 13th! If you ride in Ontario, you gotta ride here!
