Memorial Day veterans’ motorcycle ride set to return in May, if Pentagon approves

Thousands of veterans advocates are set to renew their annual Memorial Day motorcycle ride around the National Mall next month, but they’re still waiting on Pentagon planners to respond to requests for help making the event safe amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“These people are coming no matter what,” said Joe Chenelly, national executive director of AMVETS, organizers of the Rolling to Remember rally. “This is something that means a lot to people. So we’re trying to make sure there is a safe, responsible environment for them.”

2021 Aprilia Tuono 660 first ride review: Less power, same fun


The Tuono 660 offers a big Tuono riding experience in a more manageable package.


The Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 is an incredible motorcycle. It’s hugely powerful, aggressively styled and wildly competent — but pretty expensive, and ultimately, not for beginners. For everyone else, there’s the new Aprilia Tuono 660, which takes the same formula and pairs it with a much more approachable powerplant. The result is something pretty special.

The heart of the Tuono 660 is its 660-cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, putting out 100 horsepower. The high-revving twin gives up a lot of the all-around torque that the V4 Tuono has in spades (49 pound-feet versus 89 lb-ft), but it maintains that bike’s thrilling top-end rush.
