We had to drive our oldest son back to WVU in Morgantown for summer classes this weekend and decided to visit the wife's Aunt in Pittsburgh. Friday afternoon we drove out I68 and the lines of bikes heading east to DC for the event was staggering!
Literally THOUSANDS. It was nothing to see groups of several hundred in a cluster with POW flags and the American flag mounted on the back.
When we lived in New England it was not unusual to see big groups heading north to Laconia but this was massive. And it seems like 90% were baggers or other big touring bikes.
This was the 25th year so I'm sure that kicked things up a bit.
Coming back this morning was the reverse as many were heading home after the rally and I guess there was a big concert at the Capital last night.
Since DC is only a hour and half ride for me I am seriously thinking about making the ride next year.
As a Vet I can't think of a better way to celebrate the day.
\"There he goes. One of God\'s own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production.
