Hadn't planned on it, but for the first time I got to see Rolling Thunder this weekend. I was surprised to see quite a few Black motorcyclists participating. Don't think I didn't wave. :D Why are we so underrepresented though? There have to be more than what I saw...Are they discouraged somehow? And what about the Native Americans and the Asian and Pacific Islanders? I did see women, but a lot of them were riding on the same bike as the men. I didn't see too many by there lonesome, which also made me sad and contemplative...Like I said, I can't shut my brain off. I'm kicking myself now for not taking pics...Why I was downtown at all during that time is a story for a different post.
