Retreads Rally 2013

I've spent the last two days at the three-day 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 (I'm one of the youngest at age 52), 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!
