Red Thunder Rolling – Motorcycle Ride for a Great Cause

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown April 30th, 2016 Last Updated on: April 30th, 2016


The annual Red Thunder Rolling motorcycle journey arrived at Gathering of Nations on Saturday. Each year the ride benefits a Native American cause, with this year's ride benefiting the Manuelito Navajo Children's Home in Gallup, New Mexico. The ride begins in Gallup at the Fire Rock Navajo Casino and ends at the Gathering of Nations.

I spoke with a lady named Trudy who said this was her first time riding with the group. She said they had just gotten in from the Route 66 Casino, which is their last pit stop before all arriving at Gathering of Nations together. And wow, there were a ton of great looking motorcycles out there!




Here's some video footage shot and edited by Leon Chee from the 2013 rally.

Looks like a lot of fun and a scenic drive for a good cause!
