[May 05, 2017]   LINCOLN -  After participating at the ribbon cutting at The Mill on Historic Route 66, Governor Rauner and Geoff Ladd traveled to Zero Tolerance on Chicago Street for a blessing of the bikes. Adam Henderson, aka Bigfoot, traveled from Decatur on the rainy Saturday to conduct the blessing. Motorcycle riders traveled from all over to take part in the ceremony.

While Governor Rauner traveled to Lincoln for all of the Route 66 festivities via SUV, Bigfoot took a moment with the Governor to bless his bike and wish him safe riding on Route 66 and all of the other terrific highway and byways of Illinois.

“Illinois has some of the best riding in the country and with the renewed interest in Route 66, Lincoln is going to be at the center of the Route 66 revival,” said the Governor. He also singled out ABATE for their long time support of motorcycle riding, public service and safety advocacy.
