I understand it is a Holiday weekend and some of you will be unable to attend as you will be with your families. For those of you that can participate, I thank you in advance. More riders have always shown their presence, which makes it more meaningful overall to the families. Mark the dates on your calendar and bring your flags on bikes.
IT IS NOT ABOUT US.
Ride Safe and Be Safe!
All biker organizations are welcome to participate and begin spreading the word.
