Rolling Thunder

The veteran organization "Rolling Thunder" rode into Washington aloft their custom motorcycles for three days of events honoring their fellow veterans and strengthening ties with President George W. Bush, their choice for November's election. The organization took its name from Operation Rolling Thunder — the United States' extensive bombing campaign during the Vietnam War. "When you ride a whole bunch of Harleys together with straight pipes, it sounds like a B-52 carpet bombing," said Mr. Muller, who earned the Combat Infantry Badge serving in the Army's 4th Infantry Division during the Vietnam War.

One of the things I like about Orange County Choppers is the type of rubber they put on their custom rides, also look at the barb wire spokes.
