Hey now, take it easy! You know that they're all patriotic-er than you are anyway, right??? The pirate costume alone is the equivalent of wrapping yourself in the flag.

you can be damned sure there's a lot of japanese bikes there, even if over 90% are harley's. and over 90% are harley's, i have been there. but 10% of 300,000 is still 30,000... there's even a lot of european bikes!

Doesn't DC have a helmet law??


Good thing I always seem to be working the day this happens.
