RECAP: 3rd Annual Lowcountry 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle Ride
By The Kelly Golden Show Podcast
September 6, 2023
UPDATE: Massive thanks to all 343 bikes, trucks, trikes and support vehicles who participated in this year's ride. That number is incredibly significant to the September 11th attacks on America 22 yrs. ago. 343 is actually the number of NYC Fire fighters that were lost that ill fated day:
As a rider in all three runs so far, I can say this about the 3rd Annual Lowcountry 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle ride, I'm blessed and thankful we all made it through the monsoon that played out before us along the ride from Goose Creek, ending at American Legion Post 147 on Folly Rd. James Island.
My specific job was to carry Bradley Shuffler, of BA Shuffler Productions ahead of the entire procession to 'set up' atop the James Island Connector to get drone footage of all the ride participants. Thank you Bradley, and so many others, for donating your talent and time for a worthy cause.
He'd never been in a sidecar, nor flown a drone from one, so we met up in advance of this year's run to practice, only to learn launching his craft from a moving motorcycle sidecar was nearly impossible. So, the plan was to 'break out' from the procession, with safety escorts ahead and behind us, to get a 'stationary' position to launch his drone for coverage. What wasn't anticipated was the blinding rain, waterspouts, flooding and heavy winds we all had to brave to pull this off!
Massive thanks to everyone who made the 3rd Lowcountry 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle Ride such a massive success, which is to show the world that we will never forget the attacks on America and the thousands we lost that day, and the years to follow.
