Our Honored dead

Those cemeterys really rip your heart out. Anyone who can go through one, and not feel a sense off pride as an American are cold hearted at best. The ultimate sacrifice those soldiers have given for us makes me ALWAYS support our military. Rest in Peace, and may God be with you.

But you choose to ride your bike amongst them that shows a lot of respect.

There's a road there. Way to ruin the spirit of the thread.

The road is probably for the gardeners etc to use not for visitors to run their bikes up and down. I would be heart broken if I had gone to pay my respects to a fallen friend and had my peace and prayers ruined by a guy riding his bike around the cemetery.

Excelent picture




@ MarkN
You've never been to arlington cemetary have you? I understand that you feel the dead should be respected, and they are and I assure you that shoganai's riding there was not in the least bit disrespectful and would not have bothered anyone. The cemtary is not in a remote quite place, but is boardered on one side by one of the most heavily traveled interstates in the US and on the other by the largest office building in the US - its amazingly well maintained and staffed. Even had she wanted to I'm quite sure Shoganai would not have been able to ride very far/long anywhere she wasn't supposed to.

Sir, first allow me to apoligize for any disrespect it looks like I displayed. None was intended. And none was given.

Both of my uncles served, my Grandfather served, and currently my 21 year old cousin Allen Ginnery is serving in Iraq.

Sir, this was the Black Hills National Cemetary at Sturgis, SD

http://www.cem.va.gov/CEM/cems/nchp/blackhills.asp

I passed by there this past summer. There was a houseshoe like road lined with flags through it. Out of shot were two cars, one to the left and right. Both were persons come to pay their respects to their lost ones.

I spoke with the gentleman who had parked his car closest to me. He was alone and about 60 years old. I asked whom he was visiting and he told me it was his brother and some of his story. We talked awhile near where I was parked and the other car drove past. No one said I was not supposed to be there or even looked at me in a manner that would have made me believe so.

I hold those that serve and have served our country in high reguard, Thus my desire to post this picture.

I don't know what else to say

Post Script.

Please don't make this go to Jo Momma.

I started this as a place we could all post our respects. From every country all over the world.

This is an international site and I would like to think that the mutual respect we give each other as bikers can be magnified and shown here as our combined respect we all have for all our lost ones all over the world.

Please do not make this a stage of bitterness and political chest thumping.


Just bowed heads and heavy hearts.


Lest we forget.
