Despite Checkpoints Motorcyclists Turn Out to Honor Slain Trooper

When it comes to showing their support, Georgia motorcyclists choose to put aside politics and just ride.

Close to a thousand motorcyclists turned out last weekend to honor slain Georgia State Patrol Trooper Chadwick LeCroy in the first Line of Duty ride in Atlanta.

O Gary Buffington of the Rough Neck Motorcycle Club told local television station Fox 5, “This is absolutely phenomenal for us, we were hoping and praying for 300 to 500 bikes and from what we can tell we’ve got a little over 700 bikes here right now.”

Other motorcyclists attending said this ride wasn’t the proper place to voice their opposition to the State Patrol checkpoint  policy and that while they may disagree with the checkpoints, they were able to set that aside and ride to show their support for the slain trooper and donate to the Corporal Chad LeCroy Family Memorial Fund.
