WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is starting her East Coast bus tour on a motorcycle. She arrived at the Pentagon today on the back of a motorcycle as thousands of bikers from across the country gathered for Rolling Thunder.
Wearing black from head to toe, the Republicans' 2008 vice presidential nominee stopped at the annual motorcycle ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Palin, who is mulling a White House run, was joined by her family.
Palin chatted with other motorcyclists and joked about how warm she is in her leather jacket. Temperatures in Washington are expected to climb near 90 degrees on Sunday.
