Bikes gleamed at the fifth annual Freedom First bike show and fundraiser Saturday at the Runestone Community Center in Alexandria.

Motorcycles of all colors, sizes and models were on display, some from as far back as a 1927 Indian.


Classes included stock, vintage, metric, custom, rad/rat, trike, sport bike, best paint and best of show.

Safety was also on display. Riders had an opportunity to test their driving skills on a "SMARTrainer" road simulator.

Freedom First Riders are part of ABATE of Minnesota - a non-profit, grassroots organization committed to educating motorcyclists and the public about motorcycling.
