Welcome to Northern California
Patriot Guard Riders
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides our love of motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for Americaís freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.
We donít care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether youíre a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where youíre from or what your income is; you donít even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect. There are 'NO" meetings, or money dues either.
Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives:
1- Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
2- Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.
We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
The Patriot Guard Riders are a diverse amalgamation of riders and non-riders from across the nation using the internet to network and coordinate the pursuit of our Mission Statement.
We are not a Motorcycle or Riding Club nor are we set up to function as one. In fact, many Motorcycle and Riding clubs can and do participate in Patriot Guard Missions as individual clubs but the PGR is itself, not a club of any kind, just dedicated people with great respect for those who Stand for Us.
To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and we are praying for a safe return home for all.
