Top Ten: Argonish Ride

Photos from the SGT Jan Argoinsh Motorcycle Ride have landed in the Top Ten every year, for the past few.

The photos don't do it justice.  They are unable to capture the roar of the engines, the smell of the exhaust, and the emotion of the people here.  SGT Argonish was killed in Afghanistan in 2007.  The motorcycle run raises money for charities Jan would have endorsed.  Over the years, the money has helped veterans, the elderly, kids, animals...   It's a long list.

The run begins and ends in Dalton, but this photo was taken in Throop, on the afternoon of September 13.  The riders are traveling up Dunmore Street-- bikes as far as the eye could see.

Tomorrow:  up close and colorful.
