Bruce Springsteen went out for a ride and may not have gotten back if not for some good Samaritans on Veterans Day.
Springsteen took advantage of a warm day in New Jersey by taking a spin on his motorcycle, but it broke down on the side of the road by Allaire State Park. At the same time, members of the Freehold American Legion Post 54 Legion Riders — who represented Post 54 at the Veterans Day Ceremony in Holmdel for Veterans Day — had the same idea, enjoying the nice weather by taking a ride to Manasquan before returning home to Freehold.
As members Dan Barkalow, Bob Grigs, Donald Clayton and Ryan Baily were making their way through the backstreets — er, back roads — back to Freehold, they noticed a scared and lonely rider on the side of Allaire Road calling out for help. The veterans pulled over and discovered it was Springsteen. Baily had the Boss climb onto his bike, and the men gave him a ride to Mulligan’s, a restaurant in Farmingdale, while the 67-year old rocker made a call for a pickup.
After the guys went inside, sat down and had a few drinks, the thankful singer threw in $100, told them to keep the change, posed for a few pictures and took their phone numbers — presumably for future rides or one heck of a thank-you note.
Check out the picture below.
