AAR: PGR – Midnight Ride to Ground Zero 2010

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.

The sculpture in the memorial field formerly stood in the plaza at the World Trade Center and still bears the scars of 9/11.
