My first PGR Ride

went on my first PGR today and I must say its a moving experience. I think the part that got to me the most was when the wife of the fallen solider and her daughter came up and said their takes for coming out to show my support. real touching stuff

Hey Gryphin,
I'm glad you joined us for SGT Tousha's arrival home, and I hope to see you whenever you can make one. I was gonna post his and Hartley's missions up, but to be honest, I was just about ready to give up. You just gave me reason to continue.

I couldn't ride with you guys today, with the taxes due, but I'm gonna try to make tomorrow's airport mission for Hartley, and maybe his Funeral service on Saturday. I'm sure there will be over a hundred of us on Saturday.

Thanks man!

Rob

PGR

I am a PGR member also and it is one of the most moving experiences you can ever have. I had to work today. Make the ones you can and pray for the rest. Sport bike, cruisers or standards it really doesn't matter, you are paying your respects for the ultimate sacrifice. Congrats.
