June 4, 2009 by Hersey · Comments Off on Rolling Thunder veterans change image of bikers
On Memorial Day weekend in Washington, parents cheered and their babes waved little American flags at hundreds of bikers. What has happened in three decades to inspire this sea change in attitude toward bikers, a group that once was feared by average Americans?
In an event with the almost-menacing moniker Rolling Thunder, almost half a million motorcyclists rumbled across the Arlington Memorial Bridge, snaked around the Mall and dismounted en masse near the Lincoln Memorial. Most of the bikers were clad in black leather, many sported Visigothian manes and beards and almost all straddled brutish, black Harley-Davidsons or H-D clones.
The bad-boy biker image began decades ago. In Hollister, Calif., on the weekend of July Fourth, 1947, a motorcycle rally became rowdy. Some drunken participants (restless war veterans among them) were arrested, and Life magazine ran a story featuring a staged photograph from Hollister of a belching biker perched on his machine’s footpegs, surrounded by beer bottles. In 1953, Columbia Pictures projected a highly fictionalized and sensationalized version of the event on the silver screen in the Marlon Brando film “The Wild One.”
COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Boots and bandana-clad bikers spent Saturday morning helping special local athletes one twist of the throttle at a time. The miles they rode will give Eddie Martin and other locals the opportunity to compete in bowling, track and field and other sports.
The Colonial Heights Sheriff’s Office Fifth Annual Special Olympics Motorcycle Ride rumbled through town and beyond Saturday morning. Funds from the event will help Martin — a topnotch bowler — and about 70 others train for and travel to statewide competitions.

MRF Bikers Inside the Beltway 2009 Event Details
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is holding its inaugural ride to the Nation’s Capitol for Motorcycle Awareness Month. Known as “Bikers Inside the Beltway,” the event will be dedicated to its creator, the recently departed MRF Vice President and long-time motorcyclists’ rights legend Michael “Boz” Kerr.
The MRF is encouraging bikers nationwide to ride their motorcycles to Washington DC for this historic event. We have reserved secure parking for motorcycles adjacent to the U.S. Capitol; this location should make for an impressive display of bikes.
