Bikers roar through Washington in honor of 9/11

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A large rally to commemorate September 11th has been roaring through the streets of Washington, D.C.

Motorcyclists took part in a ride to remember the victims of 9/11, along with the members of the military called to serve after the attacks.

On the event's Facebook page, the group said they stand by the constitution and bill of rights but they are "against any fundamental transformation of America."

Organizers tried to get a last-minute permit to close some intersections on their planned route, but the national park service denied that request because of traffic concerns.

Permits are not required to hold a rally in Washington, but they are needed when streets are closed.

On its Facebook page, the group apologized for the gridlock they may have caused.
