Today I'll be sloggin' thru the wet stuff to the annual rally hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Retreads International motorcycle club. The rally is HQ'd in Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania in the heart of Amish country. If you're not familiar with Retreads, we're an AMA-chartered club that's been around since 1970. Retreads is a non-profit, socially oriented organization of some 5,000+ members around the world, all of whom share two things: an age of 40 plus, and a love of motorcycling. Other than those requirements, Retreads is open to anyone. This rally usually brings 500-600 attendees, primarily from the Mid-Atlantic region as one would expect, but we get folks from as far away as Maine; there is also have a regular contingent from Canada. There will be many well-organized group rides, self-guided tours, poker runs, vendors, prizes and (typical of Amish country) food, food, food! The rally runs from May 18th until either the end of the world, or the 21st if a certain group of people are wrong. More info on the rally and Mid-Atlantic Retreads is here; clicky here for general Retreads info. I've been a member for 10 years and would be happy to answer any questions about Retreads -- feel free to contact me thru the email link in my profile.
