I guess you were more of a "rolling whisper" with the Wing. Glad you could go and a great event.

Where?

So where does it start and where does it end? What routes do you take? Did you get Sarah Palin's autograph?:)

It doesn't start at any particular point. Riders will usually muster at key Harley Davidson Dealers if the want to participate in the escorted ride to the Pentagon. The largest police escorted ride group is at Patriot Harley in Fairfax , Va ( my town ). Thousands and thousands and thousands of bikes gather at the Pentagon, and about 1 p.m. begin to file out for the ride around the mall area of the Capitol. Mz. Vickie and I opted out of the Pentagon stagging area. It can be a loooooong day. Instead , we took off with another couple to Arlington Cemetery and " visited " some folks we know that reside there. I saw Sarah Palin !............(on the 6 o'clock news ).

On our ride Monday up through Virginia we saw oodles of bikes heading the other way. Many had Patriot Guard signs on the windshields and lots with large flags on the back. We were sure they were heading home from this event. Was Sarah riding or driving? I didn't get to see the news.

News showed her on the back of a Harley. Probably a CVO special edition touring bike. The $36k one..

I'm sure it wasn't a Sportster. The news pundits would have been all over those cheeks hanging over the pillion perch.

Hey Maestro, wasn't it you that made a recording of a paint shaker with open pipes for parade use? Wouldn't hide your angel white steed, but at least the enhnanced 'potato, potato' would make it sound like you fit:D
So how does Sarah fit into al this? I know she's 'politically prominant' but has she some ties with the biker community or what?

To be honest, that was the question of the day. She and her husband aren't bikers that anyone knows of, they had never been to Rolling Thunder before and yet she made it apparently into a publicity/photo op for herself. Even the organizers were confused as to why she showed up.
