Rolling Thunder 2011


Washington, DC--Memorial Day in the United States is dedicated to those men and women who died fighting for our country. It is also considered the traditional beginning of summer.

Each year during Memorial Day Weekend, tens of thousands of veterans ride their motorcycles to Washington, DC, for Rolling Thunder. The event and the organization is dedicated to prisoners of war and those who are still "MIA" or Missing in Action in the Vietnam War. The bikers ride from Arlington National Cemetery to the Vietnam War Memorial.

Nice one Luis.Hope you'll be putting on the rest of them soon. I know you've got more for us.Might be time for you to consider a bigger ride and if it has to be a scooter how about a Piaggio Gilera 800. That baby puts 75 horses under your butt and tops out over 100 mph.You'd love it.
