Thousands of motorcyclists rode through New Hampshire Saturday as a tribute to seven bikers killed in a collision with a pickup truck last month.
Organizers of the Ride For the Fallen 7 estimate that more than 2,500 bikers from the Northeast and as far away as California and Florida rode the 90-mile trip from Laconia to Randolph, where a memorial service also will be held Saturday.
Those killed were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club. President Manny Ribeiro says the show of support is "just amazing." He says of the ride, "This is what happens when good people die."

The bikers were killed June 21 in Randolph when a pickup truck hauling a flatbed trailer crashed into them. The driver has pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide.
