Run For The Wall riders are D.C. bound

Three large groups of motorcyclists were eastbound on different highways in New Mexico Friday, May 15, on day 3 of the annual Run for the Wall.

More than 700 bikers are riding from California to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., to honor all military veterans – and especially those who were killed in action or are missing.

OOIDA Member David Talley says when his group rolled into Gallup, N.M., on Thursday, the town turned out.

“We got off and paraded through town and went all the way up to Red Rock, and it’s a 15-mile trip,” Talley said. “And there were flags about every 100 feet. It was awesome.”

The bikers expect to reach Washington next Friday, May 22, and will be joined by other riders for a procession called “Rolling Thunder.”
