The Red One at the Blessing of the Bikes

Blessing of the Bikes, May 19, 2019

On Sunday, May 19, 2019, thousands of other bikers and I attended the 19th Annual Blessing of the Bikes in Xenia, Ohio. While there, thanks to help from Marshall Foiles at Buckminn’s D&D, a Harley-Davidson dealer in Xenia, I got a prime piece of corner real estate in the thick of it where I met hundreds of people and had a chance for substantive conversation with one member of the officiating clergy about my ride and, just as rain was moving in, the Red One was personally blessed by a priest to help ensure safe travels and protect me on my way.
