56Three wheels are set to lead the pack of the inauguration parade on January 20th.  It is customary to have the parade let by motorcycles riding in the “V” pattern, and this year the sidecar rigs are going to be let by a custom Police Model Tri-Glide. Lieutenant Scott Fear, Commander of the U.S. Park Police Motorcycle Unit, will lead the parade from the Capitol to the White House.

87a2Along with 50 other motorcycles, The District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department received delivery of twelve new FLHTP Electra Glides to follow up the Tri-Glide.  And these are special models too.  For the fifth year in a row, Harley Davidson of Frederick is providing the custom Harleys with sidecars for the parade.  This is a big deal to the dealer as bids must be put in every four years for the honor of supplying the bikes.  The Frederick shop is rated as #1 in the country for service and I suspect this has a lot to do with them getting the contract.

Regardless of how you feel about the upcoming presidency, check out the parade just to see the bikes.  It should be a beautiful sight.
