One of the few times in the year when living in the shadows of our Nation's Capitol is worth the effort.

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