    I'll really try to make this mission even though it's so very far from my home. Tee Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee My bike won't even be warmed up & I'm there. lol


    The weather was good for this mission. There was one new rider, Joe. Welcome Joe. There were eleven of us: two in a cage, one on a trike, and eight bikes. The Air Force had a three gun volley salute followed by taps. Family members came down the flag line to thank us for serving and being there. They were very appreciative of the PGR.
    Dick Ward, Ride Captain
