Patriot Chopper makes debut ride during Rolling Thunder

June 5, 2008 by · Comments Off on Patriot Chopper makes debut ride during Rolling Thunder 

Patriot Chopper ARLINGTON, Va. – Although “Rolling Thunder” may be the name of a stirring circus march, for many those two words bring to mind the revving of a half-million motorcycle engines.

Every Memorial Day for the past 21 years, bikers from all over the country have traveled to the nation’s capital for a one-mile trip from the Pentagon to the National Mall. Event organizers call it Rolling Thunder because of the sound made by thousands of motorcycles crossing Memorial Bridge into the District of Columbia. The event’s main focus is to publicize American servicemembers who are prisoners of war and those who are still listed as missing in action.

New Sport Bike Training Unveiled

NORFOLK – A new course designed for sport bike motorcycle riders in the Navy and Marine Corps kicked off at Naval Station Norfolk June 4 and at other fleet concentration areas. Every sport bike rider in the Navy and Marine Corps will be required to take the course.

For Sailors and Marines, many of whom are naturally attracted to an adrenaline rush, this is a huge selling point. However, these same features make riding sport bikes much different than handling cruisers or touring bikes. Mishap statistics show it’s important to take these differences into account.

The Naval Safety Center (NSC) partnered with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation to create the Military Sport Bike Rider Course (MSRC) specifically for sport bike riders.

And for the second time, Gov. Jennifer Granholm likely will veto it.

The House on Wednesday gave final approval, 70-38, to bill that would allow motorcyclists ages 21 and older to pay the state $100 a year for a permit to ride with no helmet. They’d have to pass a motorcycle safety course and have been licensed for two previous years.
