I am not a consistent blogger, but I do like to point out more detail on the galleries that I put together to share. Link: https://goo.gl/qKu1qv
To everyone who rode in, or wished they did, to Port Dover on Friday October 13th, 2017. It was a glorious day for the most part. It started out wet, but quickly by 10 am the rain had stopped and the roads were dry in Port Dover. The sun was shinning and the bikes were rolling in.
Predicted around 80,000 people to converge in Port Dover, a town with just over 6,000 residents. As I walked around, I feel there were more bikes than predicted, due to the change in weather. It was a perfect day for a ride.
I saw the usual suspects that come and get their T-Shirts and leave. As well as those who come a day early, like me, and leave a day later...
The event greets motorcycle enthusiasts from all around with open arms, well most of the residents do ;) !
This quiet fishing town located on lake Erie, any other day is a peaceful place to visit. Come Friday the 13th the party begins. For a good 12 + hours the town is buzzing with motorcycles coming in for a tradition that is in its 63rd gathering, started in 1981.
I must mention that I felt I was lacking custom bikes to photograph as in years past. I have been away for close to 10 years attending these events and it seems to me there used to be more custom work to show off. I especially appreciate the Veterans that were honoured by either their child or grand child on their rides. Check out the gallery and you will see what I mean. Warms the heart!
Feel free to contact me if you would like your bike photographed and added to future galleries. Or if you just want to say hello!
I am planning an evening shoot next eve of Friday the 13th on the pier in front of the lighthouse. Featuring your bike! Contact me for details! April Friday 13th and July Friday 13th.
