Days of Thunder with The Honor Run

Me saluting one of the support vans for The Honor Run.

Parking lot in Mesquite full of bikes.

Lots of people stopped to have a look at Metal of Honor and hear how she was created.

The table we brought was a little small, but the friendly event staff at Casablanca fixed us up with a HUGE one just after we took this pic. The girls say that Anthony at the Front Desk is also "awesome!"

CTS ( Consider the Source) put on a great show!

Everyone was stopped in their tracks to do a double take on Metal of Honor and really look over the engravings.

We hooked up with The Honor Run at Mesquite, NV yesterday. They have a small group of core riders, who have been with the Run since they left Washington, DC. Riders are joining the Run at various points and leaving when they want.

In Mesquite, there were about 100 bikes. CTS put on a great show in the tent provided by the very friendly folks at Casblanca Hotel and Casino. Darryl and his staff were so considerate and efficient!

We got set up and a LOT of people stopped to check out Metal of Honor, including my friend, John Baca (MOH, Vietnam). John even let Norah and Krystal hold his Medal. Yep, my employees are all hero groupies now! Seriously, John is a great guy and has been riding in a support vehicle with The Honor Run since it left D.C.

Mike Kerr, who organized The Honor Run, welcomes the riders to the party in Mesquite.

Kickstands up at 6am to head out to San Marcos, CA.

We're with The Run til the party on Saturday and have been tweeting with pics from the road. Follow us on twitter if you wanna see us thunder down I-5 past Camp Pendleton and all those flags tomorrow.
