Arnott Cycles is proud to participate in Thin Blue Line - 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, sponsored by Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, Coastal Indian of Myrtle Beach and American Iron Magazine, was Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte where they revealed two Custom Bagger Indian Motorcycles that include Arnott's Ultimate Ride Air Suspension for Indian Motorcycles.
The charity ride includes a team of motorcycle riders who will travel 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.
Beginning near San Diego, California, the ride will cover over 2,500 miles across the southern states, ending in Daytona Beach, Florida, for the 2019 Daytona Beach Bike Week rally. The bikes chosen to complete this journey will be Lloydz Garage Signature Series Indian Motorcycles, available exclusively through Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte, with upgrades to engine performance ranging from cams and air filters, complete supercharged powerplants, upgraded exhaust and adjustable air suspension for Indian Touring models from Arnott Cycles.
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 kicked off with a Custom Thin Blue Line Indian Chief reveal and a meet and greet at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte on Saturday, February 23.
