Motorcycle Ride Marks 12th Anniversary Of 9/11

Posted: Updated:

A motorcycle ride was held Wednesday to remember the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Dozens of members of the Fire Department of New York motorcycle club took part.

They were joined by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and singer Billy Joel.

"It's an honor," Joel told the New York Daily News. "I was at Ground Zero a few days after 9/11 and it was the worst thing I ever saw in my life. To be asked to do this is very moving."

Cuomo rode a black Harley-Davidson. Joel was on a blue-and-white Drifter.

"I got the chills, just to ride with the governor and Billy Joel," said retired firefighter Danny Beyar, 56, who helped organize the event. He was with Rescue 5 on 9/11, which lost 11 members, and he worked for months at Ground Zero.

"It was just beautiful," Beyar told New York Daily News. "It's a good day but a sad day. We can't forget."

The riders gathered at a firehouse on West 43rd Street and then headed down the West Side Highway to the World Trade Center site for the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
