Using a Harley to help families of fallen soldiers

Posted: Updated:
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. -

The Green Mountain Harley Davidson is supporting fallen soldiers, and it's doing it by giving a completely different meaning to the term "going commando."

Bikers came together to enjoy a BBQ and some rock climbing in support of the families of Vermont's fallen soldiers. Raffle tickets were also for sale for a chance to win a motorcycle. Bikers could come wearing dresses, or "going commando" meaning no underwear, to win a prize. The two bikes that participants hoped to win were built by the Community High School of Vermont and the department of corrections men's facility in St. Albans.

"At the end of the build, they choose the charities that they want to donate the bikes to, and then we raffle them off and the charity gets the money," said Green Mountain Harley Davidson's owner David Pearson. "We design the bikes around the charity so you'll see the 42 stars on the motorcycle that represent the people who were lost in the war on terror. It's been a pretty interesting build for us, it's pretty cool," said Pearson.

Money raised goes towards the Vermont Fallen Families organization.
