Rolling Thunder XXX

I had never been able to ride in Rolling Thunder® but wanted to. My late wife Jane cornered a forum member, Spanky, at the 2004 BuRP Forum rally. He's a former Marine pilot who had been part of Rolling Thunder® for a few years. He invited us to come on down and be part of Rolling Thunder® XVIII.

Jane and I both rode our motorcycle trikes in Washington D.C. on Memorial Day, 2005 with Rolling Thunder, along with several members of the Motorcycle Views forum. Here's that story. I'm sure that Rolling Thunder® XXX will not be too different from my story of 12 years ago except there may be more security.
