Rolling Thunder Brings 250,000 Motorcycles in Washington DC [Video]
This special motorcycling event started in 1988 and was connected to the Memorial Day celebrations, and around 2,500 motorcycles were present at the first ride. As Rolling Thunder got older, it became an institution and now it is 100 times as big, bringing riders from all over the country in one of the largest bike parades of all times.
Starting in the parking lot of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, the Rolling Thunder parade went past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean Veterans Memorial and the World War II Veterans Memorial, with the Washington Monument and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial included in the route. The parade ended on the banks of the Potomac River.
