Ride with us. . . and help us make a difference for our veterans and our community
Watching an over joyed veteran who is confined to a wheelchair, roll up for the first time on the new wheel chair ramp we built. Seeing the excitement in the eyes of children when they see us rolling up to their tattered home with loads of Christmas gifts for the family. Wiping the tears from the face of parents who are barely making ends meet, when we bring them an entire Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings. Seeing a huge smile on the face of a high school graduate when we present him or her with a big check to help pay for their scholarship tuition. The pride in the eyes of loved ones as we escort their beloved veteran to his or her final resting place. These are just a few of the incredible, heartfelt emotions that we encounter as Legion Riders.
If you would like to experience the great joy and pride of giving back to our veterans and our community, as well as the therapeutic benefits of riding your motorcycle on some great rides, with some great people! We would LOVE to have you join us!
