Over one hundred fifty motorcycles under Somerville Police motorcycle escort took part in the “12th Annual 2013 Storm the Statehouse” ride Thursday morning.
The Massachusetts Motorcycle Association (MMA), the organizers of the ride, are hoping that state legislators will acknowledge their requests regarding motorcycle safety issues, motorcycle insurance and statues as well as licenses, regulations and laws concerning motorcycles.
The biker’s ride originated from different staging areas from across the state and gathered early morning at the function hall donated by the Somerville Lions Club located on New Washington Street in Somerville.
The bikers were treated to a continental breakfast and a quick meeting by the MMA before their noon bike ride journey to the Massachusetts Statehouse in Boston was underway.
Also in attendance for the ride were representatives from the “Disabled and Limbless Veterans Association” who are in full support of the MMA’s organization and its causes.
