The turnout for the mission was outstanding. There were twenty-five bikes that rode escort to the museum including two first mission riders. Bikes staging at the museum put the number above thirty. The escort from Elgin was absolutely flawless. For that I thank every rider for their complete cooperation and professionalism. Special thanks to the Elgin PD for getting us safely to Manor and to Austin PD for the safe escort through Austin to the museum. Thank you Bob Binkley for wrangling flags and also a big thank you to those able to stay and help assemble the exhibit.
