Patriot flag rolls into Alexandria on Harley

Posted: Updated:
 ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- The "patriot flag" arrived in Alexandria Saturday afternoon at Renegade Harley Davidson.

An American flag travels on the back of motorcycles all throughout the country from Memorial Day to Labor Day to honor the troops.

On Saturday, the flag traveled from a store in Lafayette and stopped at the Harley Davidson store in Alexandria.

Bikers say they feel a sense of pride when the flag rolls in. And, nothing says "American pride" quite like a Harley.

"It's a great sense of pride," said Jerry Webb, a former president of the Renegade Hog chapter. "You'll see a lot of veterans attend. It's just a real sense of pride to see this American flag brought in on the back of a Harley Davidson. It honors our past and present fallen warriors."

The next group of bikers will head off Sunday morning at 10 a.m. to Monroe.
