American Legion bike riders revved their 100-plus engines and rode into town April 20.
“This isn’t a motorcycle club; we are just American Legion members who like to get out and ride,” said Rich Scherb, who organized the stop at Catasauqua’s Post 215. “For the most part, everyone knows each other.”
Scherb led the group with his 2014 Harley Davidson Street Glide.
According to Scherb, the organization finds a veteran in need of assistance and helps them.
