TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Historic Harley-Davidson in Topeka has a special tradition.
“We do the pledge every Saturday, we’ve done that since 9/11. So whether it’s raining we’ll do it inside if it’s beautiful we’ll go outside,” Eli Geiger, the general manager of Historic Harley-Davidson said.
Lucky for their guests Saturday morning was beautiful – Harley-Davidson invited the public to join them for the pledge in honor of memorial weekend.
“We wanted to have some fun and show our appreciation so we’ve got the post 421 flag line out. We also invited police car karaoke to come out and sing with us this morning,” Geiger said.
Officer Lamont Jackson and Officer Mike Pagel from the viral police car karaoke video came to sing the national anthem.
After the officers left – it was back to business as usual – but Scott Martin who was manning a booth encouraging people to sign up for the Hand Up Stand Up ride in September says today was special.
“That was wonderful. To see the people come out, to show their patriotism. You know a lot of people think that patriotism is not alive, it’s alive and well.”
