Default Great Ride!!!

This past Sunday we had a really good motorcycle run in our area, it was called the Charleston Bridges Run. The Charleston South Carolina area has many bridges that connect all the islands in fact a new one that is presently under construction to replace two old ones.

Over 800 motorcycles gathered to ride the 65 mile over 11 bridges run, the snake of bikes covered at least 4 to 5 miles, we had a police escort with all stop signs and traffic lights open to bikes only ( Really Cool ).

There was everything from choppers to three wheelers, everything went off without a hitch.

Longshot!!!

Default Thanks AOW,

After I read your attachment I called some friends of mine and they did confirm that a motorcycle cop did go down. A gal in a SUV turned in front of him.

There were so many bikes spread out of such a long distance we just happen to miss all the bad stuff.

The six guys and gals that I went to the ride with stayed together throughout the complete ride and never put our feet down once.

Ride safe but always ride,

Longshot
