I rode the 9-11-13 ride From S.C. to Washington DC at night alone. This is what I saw the next morning as the sun began to rise. 

At 10.45 am 9-11-13 while going into Washington on I-95 I was able to shut down I-95.... briefly, but by God it did stop. 
That's what we went up there to do was shut Washington down. Did my job, .....how.....flat tire in the fast lane.
Still got the 16 penny nail that did me in.
 
make a note: Don't every piss off the Bikers of America...
 
September 11, 2013 Washington, DC
 said we couldn't ride through their town to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the members of the military
called to serve after the attacks .....No permits for us but the musses got one.
 
but we did ride..... 1.2 million of us strong.

A little sign added so people would know what we the people just did in WASHINGTON DC on 9-11-13. 
I rode the center lane on
 
I-95 South and I-85 South for 11 hours. Lots of horns and thumbs up..
 
The news refused to cover it..
 
Just because they try to ignore us does not mean that they will be successful at it. 
 
State Links for next year SEE you there next year.

All of the medicines Fishmox carries are NON-PRESCRIPTION antibiotics.
They are the same USP grade antibiotics produced by pharmaceutical companies for human use. 
Every capsule or tablet is labeled, imprinted, and often color-coded with a special code that can be used to identify the strength and type of the antibiotic by performing a simple internet search.
