On Friday, March 11, 2011, members of APACK rode to Atlanta, Georgia. It was pretty cold when we left. We arrived in Atlanta at nearly 6:30 Friday evening. Saturday morning, we gathered at the Georgia Stat Troopers Barracks in Atlanta for a Memorial ride in rememberance of Corporal Chadwick LeCroy, who was murdered in the line of duty. Trooper LeCompte, a Georgia State Trooper along with the Rough Neck Motorcycle Club, and other officers, organized the ride. The ride was escorted by the Georgia State Troopers motor units. What a wonderful job they did in controlling traffic along the interstates in Atlanta, to make it a safe ride for all. We don't have a final count, but there were at least 650 bikes participating.
Some made it home on Sunday, while others chose to ride more in Georgia, even visiting the mountains around Dahlonegha, and Blue Ridge. What a great riding area, and what pretty scenery this time of year. However, it's a long ride and my rear end is just now recovering. I'm not a seasoned rider like many of you. We should all look to do something like this again. It was a great experience, and we thank our fellow riders for participating.
