If It's Memorial Day Weekend Then It's Time For the Rumble of Rolling Thunder

Not everyone is packing up the car and heading to the beach this weekend. If you are staying in the DC area then the biggest event is the annual Rolling Thunder Rally.

The rally started in 1987 with 2500 motorcycles riding through the streets of DC. Over the years the rally grew and now close to 250,000 motorcycles participate in the ride. Today the reason for the event is still as important as it was when it first started. Remembering there are those who are still unaccounted for from previous wars and those who still sacrifice to keep us free.

If you live in Prince William County and you can head to East Coast Harley Davidson in Dumfries for their 21st annual Rolling Thunder open house on Saturday.  The open house provides a chance for you to help raise funds for the Quality of Life Foundation supported by the Ladies of Harley. There are bands, food and plenty of fun.  They are currently working to raise funds to help  Jay Briseno tragically wounded in Iraq and no longer able to care for himself.

On Sunday the riders will leave Dumfries and head to DC to join the rest of the participants who leave from the  Pentagon
travel across the Memorial Bridge and in the shadow of Arlington Cemetery, down Constitution Ave towards the US Capitol and then loops to an end at the Lincoln Memorial.

The event brings tears to not only the eyes of the veteran’s who ride but to those who watch. Make sure you get there early for you place along the route.

Tom-yes you do have an inside track on Harley Davidson.  And to think the company thought it might fold at one point.  So glad it has survived.
