23 Amazing Photos That Prove PD13 Is Still The Best Motorcycle Event Ever

Here's a reminder of what this event is all about—good times, better friends, and some incredible bikes!

Welcome to Friday the 13th in Port Dover, Ontario, also known as PD13. It's a bucket list trip and once you've experienced it, you gotta go back every year.

Yeah, there are crowds. And yeah it's different than when your grandpa was riding—but that's part of the fun. What's the same is the feeling of excitement you get as you ride into town. Before you see the thousands of bikes, you hear them. You hear the buzz of the crowd and the sound of live music. You smell the fresh air off the lake, the smoke from the BBQ, and let's face it, the exhaust fumes. That's when you know you've arrived.

PD13 is about being part of something bigger than yourself. Making new friends. Connecting with old friends. And enjoying life. That's what makes it a must-do, year after year.
