Bruce Heilman is a pinstripe sort of guy.
Except when he’s wearing his leather pants, black boots and Marine Corps do-rag tied around his head. You’ve got to look the part when you’re planning to ride your Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Did we mention Heilman is 82?
Did we mention he’s about to embark on a 3,000-mile cross-country trip on his bike, a Harley Ultra-Classic Electra Glide Patriot Edition, nearly a half-ton of black-and-chrome rolling thunder? He’s scheduled to leave Richmond on Wednesday and arrive at the Marine Corps Air Station near San Diego less than three weeks later.

Herndon resident Scott Norman, a husband and father of two young children, was one of the three motorcycle fatalities in Fairfax County this year.
On July 29, Norman lost control of his 2008 Suzuki while on Herndon Parkway, slammed into a barrier and was killed instantly. The police report estimated that he had been traveling at 77 miles per hour, more than twice the posted speed limit.
Although annual Fairfax County motorcycle fatalities have remained in the single digits in recent years, police are concerned with the potential safety issues that may come with more two-wheeled vehicles on roadways being driven by inexperienced drivers.
