Not sure, not the president, not enough cars and bike. When that happens. All of NYPD Highway Patrol is there, and allot more support form the other precincts. The last time the president was here, I lost count after 120 motorcycles and 150 cars.

The images of the row of patrol bikes show excellent compositional elements of pattern and color--very nice!

Police officers know how to organize formation, quite well. It is nice seeing all those police package, Harleys...spaced perfectly, very clean and resplendent in the sunshine.
