 -  An escorted ride all the way to the Pentagon North Parking lot (I-66 will be shut down.)

 -  The opportunity to experience the patriotic ceremonies at Patriot Harley-Davidson.

 -  An opportunity to experience the Fairfax community parade (lots of people.)

 -  An excellent staging location in Pentagon North Parking lot.

 -  The ability to stay together as the ALR.  The Patriot HD HOG organizers have worked  out a way for us to stay and ride together.

 -  The opportunity to expose many more thousands of bikers and onlookers to the  American Legion Riders!
