Cpl. Michael D. Anderson, Jr. Memorial Ride Will Celebrate Its 10th Anniversary On May 10

Modesto, CA - April 10, 2014 – The 10th Annual Cpl. Michael D. Anderson, Jr. Memorial Ride is scheduled for Saturday, May 10. “King” Kenny Roberts and several other American motorcycle racing heroes--including four-time Grand Prix Champion Eddie Lawson and fellow GP title holder Kenny Roberts, Junior, are scheduled to ride in the event aboard StarMotorcycles provided by Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. The ride is free and open to the public, and hundreds of Marines, soldiers, sailors, and airmen are expected to attend.
