2009 Digby, Nova Scotia - Wharf Rat Rally in pictures

CanadianMotorcycleRider took a run down to Digby for the 5th annual Digby Wharf Rat Rally which ran from September 2 - 9th, 2009.

Simply put - it was packed! Downtown Digby, Nova Scotia was completely overtaken by motorcycles. Nova Scotia Department of Transportation was even called in to direct traffic in and out of Digby from the highway.

For a town with a population sitting at around 2,1000 according to 2001 statistics - when about 17,000 motorcycles and 50,000 people come to town - it's a big deal! This is the largest motorcycle rally in Atlantic Canada according to the event organizers.

We stopped in for a few hours on Saturday and tied it in ot a beautiful day of about 550 km's of riding. Here's some pictures from the event for you to check out:
