    I don't think I am going to make it. It is supposed to be a scorcher and I would have to go straight from the event to work without a shower so I am going to pass this year. Have a great ride...last year it was a nice tribute.

    Judy & I will ride from the Falls Church location. See you all at the Pentagon.

    Sorry guys, can't make it to dinner. But I'll see you guys at the memorial to say hello.

    Yes, basically. The rides to the Pentagon are separate then both combine to ride back to Woodbridge for dinner and Bike Night.

    So this is basically two separate rides that happen to occur at the same time -- one starting in Falls Church and the other starting in Woodbridge. And each one is separately escorted by VA state motor officers. Do I have that right? Wayne, are you thinking that Star 474 will provide a ride leader and tailgunner for both starting locations? Will there be a pre-ride for each route?

    This sounds like a very cool thing to do.
