Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for last evening’s New England Warrior Benefit (photos to come soon)!

What a wonderfully patriotic night celebrating our military leaders and paying homage to our country’s Special Operations warriors. Your generous support will go a long way toward helping each of the five benevolent organizations that provide financial and emotional support for U.S. Spec Ops troops and their families.

Happy 4th of July and thanks all those who valiantly serve our country to protect and preserve the American way of life.

This flashy red, white and blue Dirico Pro Street bike reflects the patriotism and sacrifices of our U.S. Special Operations service members — from its classic American eagle to its touching Fallen Soldier Battle Cross, whose wings, rifle, helmet and boots symbolize respect for the fallen. There truly is No Greater Sacrifice, and this motorcycle pays tribute to all of our fallen elite warriors, and the nonprofit organization dedicated to helping their families.
