WASHINGTON (NBC/WAVY) - There was a controversial 9/11 tribute in DC called the Two Million Bikers, but only a few thousand motorcyclists actually gathered Wednesday.
The motorcyclists claimed it was to honor the victims of 9/11 and the organizer said it was originally in response to a Muslim group’s plan to hold a rally.
Some bikers said it was disrespectful for the American Muslim Political Action Committee to schedule their event for the anniversary of 9/11.
The National Park Service denied the bikers a permit, which meant they had to ride without a police escort.
Some bikers claim the National Park Services decision was political, which the service denied.
