I just got back from Washington DC tonight and there is an event that goes on there every Memorial Day weekend called Rolling Thunder. A ton of Harley guys cruise thru DC around and around and around like elbow to elbow. Those things are so loud! There were miles and miles of Harley's. I said I shoulda brought the SV down, and I was told they don't like sportbikes. Come'on man, they need to see a real bike. Next year a bunch of sport bikes need to go cruise. :lol:

It's a ride to honor all of the Veterans who have lost their lives in the wars.

True...and I know a few Veterans that ride sportbikes. No reason why we can't be tehre as well for the same cause.

Thats awesome jeeps! I know its usually droning down 2 lanes but making a showing does make a diffrence. Lately ive seen a few mixed bike groups riding. (cruisers and Spbikes) Less percieved animosity the better.
