Rode on a PGR mission today. We escorted a group of veterans from the Armed Forces Retirement home to the CB base for a 911 memorial service. Great experience shared with young soldiers that where just childern when the towers went down. May we never forget 911 and all the lives lost and the soldiers that protect our freedom and way of life.
I just got home from our local 9/11 Ride. We met at Cooks Corner in Trabuco Canynon, CA and drove to Long Beach taking Pacific Coast Hwy. from Laguna Beach to Long Beach. It is estimated that approximately 3,000 riders participated. I have never ridden in such a large group and I have never ridden so slow for so long. My clutch hand is sore! The weather was great and the cause, a way to remember was great. Thousands of spectators lined our route cheering and waving flags. I felt like I was in a parade, a really, really long parade! It was my first year riding in this event. I have never seen so many different types of motorcycles. Quite a few bikes broke down on the route, mainly Harley's. I did not see even one Honda on the side of the road. Police and Fire helped us on our route, many times blocking intersections to allow all of us to get though. We ended up in a marina in Long Beach were we had speakers, military fly-overs and BEER! It was a great day for all.
