Thank You #Aidanhasapossee (link to pictures)

The 3rd Annual Aidan's Ride out of Indian Larry Motorcycles was June 11th. 

Because of unpredictable weather, it was kickstands up at 11 am for a ride around Brooklyn with the after party at the Indian Larry Motorcycles showroom and garage. 


The ride was to the BQE to the Belt Parkway to the Cross Island to the Whitestone Expressway to Grand Central to the BQE and back to the shop 70 N 15th street, Brooklyn NY 11222.

The ride was hosted by Bobby and Elisa Seeger, owners of Indian Larry Motorcycles to raise funds to help children and families battling ALD - Adrenoleukodystrophy, a childhood disease that can be treated if it is diagnosed at birth. 
Their son, Aidan was a fighter in life, loved motorcycles and had a posse of friends cheering for him when he was diagnosed with ALD at age six in 2011. He lost the battle in 2012. The Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation was established in his honor to help families, to raise awareness of the disease and to press for legislation to require newborn screening for ALD.

Trump Spoke at 29th Rolling Thunder Demonstration Run

5/29/2016 -- Hundreds of thousands of bikers assembled at the Pentagon before riding en masse through Washington D.C. to the Lincoln Memorial, where Donald J. Trump was a guest speaker at the 29th annual Rolling Thunder veteran's motorcycle run. 

 

Rolling Thunder Riders from as far away as California and Texas, cross the heartlands of America together for the annual "Freedom Ride" through Washington D.C., coming together for the biggest one-day rally in the USA. This year marks 29 years. - Video - MSgt Rob Wilkins, USAF, Ret. 

The first Rolling Thunder run, in 1987 was made in an attempt to petition the government to take responsibility for the soldiers that were abandoned after the Vietnam War ended. Four Vietnam veterans, exercising their First Amendment "right to petition and assemble," organized a group of 2,500 veterans on motorcycles to ride through the streets of Washington D.C. to bring awareness of the plight of prisoners of war (POW) and those missing in action (MIA.)

Today, more than 500,000 riders participate in the Freedom Ride and as many as 900,000 people line the streets to welcome them to the nation's capitol.


You can watch the full Lincoln Memorial rally event here. 


Nancy Regg, a spokeswoman for Rolling Thunder, said the group invited Mr. Trump to appear. The group did not extend an invitation to Hillary Clinton or Senator Bernie Sanders, she told the New York Times.

Richard McFadden, 58, an annual Rolling Thunder attendee from North Carolina, said Mrs. Clinton would not have been welcome. Read more.

Rolling Thunder Run To The Wall - Freedom Ride Through Washington DC

Annually on Memorial Day Weekend 


Rolling Thunder began in 1987 as a demonstration to bring awareness to the plight of prisons of war (POW) and to those missing in action (MIA.) Rolling Thunder originated when four Vietnam Veterans, exercising their First Amendment "Right to Petition and Assemble," organized the first group of 2,500 motorcycles to ride through the streets of Washington, DC. The first Rolling Thunder run was made in an attempt to petition the government to take responsibility for the soldiers that were abandoned after the Vietnam War ended.


Today, more than 500,000 riders participate in this "Freedom Ride" and as many as 900,000 people line the streets to welcome them to Washington DC.
