Memorial Day Ride
This was a short ride to attend a memorial service to honor veterans past and present who gave their lives in service to our country. A few members from Chapter 230 including Stan-who organized the event, his wife Connie, Lynne who led the group to the location, Joe, John, Richard, Paul and Johnny. We met in Orange at the Best Buy parking lot and headed out to Fullerton just 11 miles away
The service was held at Memorial park in Fullerton with about 1,000 in attendance.
Here's the group as we await arrival of a Captain from the Coast Guard via Sheriff's helicopter.

Here is a photo of my KNEE/SHIN GUARDS...Bought these at Chaparral in San Bernardino for $16 and I wear these under my Draggin Jeans for impact protection, hope I never need to find out if they really work. They are comfortable enough to wear all day.
