9/11 Tribute Motorcycle Parade

9/11 memorial motorcycle ride Virginia August 2011
Today about 1800 motorcycles passed by the road I usually take to get back home. I heard about the 9/11 Tribute Motorcycle Ride first when all the local radio and newspapers were warning folks of the traffic delays. The organization behind the rally is at www.americas911ride.org/  and is doing a tremendous job paying tribute to the brave men and women who lost their lives on 9/11. I was happy to ride alongside them for a short while and watch the numerous folks who lined roads and bridge son the road to cheer them.


The route was brilliantly organized and I wish these heroes good luck as they continue their journey from the DC Area to New York. Some of the pictures from the parade route I was part of :

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
