Bikers ride through D.C. to honor 9/11 victims
To honor the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, thousands of motorcyclists are riding through the streets of the nation's capital.
The group, which calls itself the "2 Million Bikers to D.C.," had applied for a permit but was denied by the National Park Service and the Metro Police, according to WTOP.com.
The bikers decided to come to D.C. anyway, which is perfectly legal. Ted Gest, spokesperson for the D.C. attorney general's office, told U.S. News, "It's not a crime to parade" through the district without a permit.
Already, pictures are showing up on Twitter and Facebook.
