President Bush is now an honorary member of Rolling Thunder and he has the leather vest to prove it. Leaders of the motorcycle group cruised into the White House driveway to visit and present him with the vest. Rolling Thunder is in Washington for its Memorial Day weekend "Ride for Freedom" along the National Mall.

The rally attracts tens of thousands of bikers from across the country in a demonstration of support for U.S. soldiers held captive or missing in action.

Bush said he was honored to welcome the group. Accepting the gift, the president told the group's leader that they do a lot for the country, and that the nation's troops and veterans appreciate the efforts.
