Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Organizers of the "2,000,000 Bikers to D.C." hoped for a special "non-stop" riding permit to cruise through Washington, D.C., in remembrance of those lost September 11, 2001, and to honor the armed forces who have fought for our nation
The bikers were denied their permit request, but a Muslim protest group of around 1,000,000 people were granted their permit by the government, to march on the National Mall, September 11.
