On September 10th every year, thousands of motorcycles, riders and passengers, line Queens Boulevard near the New York City Harley Davidson Store. At 11:00 pm they head out on their mission. A ride to Ground Zero to honor the fallen of 9/11. This video captures the excitement of the ride:
Sponsored by the New York HOG (Harley Owners Group) this ride attracts bikers from all over to pay their respects.
The Ride ends at the New York City 911 Memorial Field in Battery Park south of Ground Zero.

In the weeks following, the inscription was chosen, the clock was ordered, and preparations for the dedication were made.
On Sunday, September 26, 1943, the veterans clock, one of the first memorials to the troops fighting in World War II was dedicated.
