Thin Blue Line Across America Update! California to Daytona
This just in! We’ve received an update from Lloyd Greer of Lloydz Motorworkz. The high-performance, supercharged baggers—that three lucky lunatics will be riding coast to coast from California to Daytona—are coming together nicely. Lloyd and co. spare no expense nor time putting these rippers together. Stay tuned for more updates about the Thin Blue Line Across America ride to benefit C.O.P.S. and NJPBA.
About The Thin Blue Line Across America
Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, Coastal Indian and American Iron Magazine are proud to sponsor and participate in a cross-country motorcycle ride to raise awareness and resources for members and families of Law Enforcement who lost their lives in the line of duty. The kickoff event is scheduled for Saturday, February 23 at 4 PM at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte.
When threatening or dangerous situations arise, people are naturally inclined to flee—unless, of course, that person a law enforcement officer. His or her first reaction is to head towards the danger, putting them in harm’s way. The term Thin Blue Line is meant to show support for those who protect and keep the peace. Each year, more than 150 officers die in the line of duty. Thus, Thin Blue Line has also grown to become an endearing tribute to commemorate the fallen.
In March 2019 a team of motorcycle riders will embark on a six-day journey across America to promote awareness about those who have given their lives protecting their communities. Lloyd Greer of Lloydz Motor Workz and Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, Tim and Sondra Sutherland of Indian Motorcycle Charlotte and Coastal Indian Motorcycle of Myrtle Beach, ACM & CMA award winning country musician Keifer Thompson of the band Thompson Square, and Steve Lita of American Iron Magazine will ride four customized Indian motorcycles from California to Florida, stopping at select locations and memorials to pay tribute to fallen officers across the country. This was how The Thin Blue Line Across America ride was conceived.
Beginning near San Diego, California, the excursion will cover over 2,500 miles across the southern states, culminating in Daytona Beach, Florida, for the famous Daytona Beach Bike Week that attracts approximately 500,000 riders from around the world. The bikes chosen to complete this journey will be Lloydz Garage Signatures Series One, Two, and Three Indian Motorcycles, available exclusively through Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte, with upgrades to engine performance ranging from cams and air filters to complete supercharged powerplants.
The trip will be chronicled daily online, and, once completed, featured in print stories in various American Iron Magazine publications. This project is being conducted in cooperation with the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association (NJPBA) and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).
The event kicks off with our Custom Thin Line Indian Chief reveal and a meet and greet at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte at 4 PM on Saturday, February 23. Indian Motorcycle Charlotte is located at 110 Indian Walk in Lowell, North Carolina, 28098 (Exit 22 off I-85). Please join our law enforcement friends, rides participants, and sponsors at this special event.
