SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Intermountain Harley-Davidson, a company with three motorcycle dealerships in Utah, honors firefighters through the 2013 Fire Ride this Sept. 7. The event’s 10th anniversary will cost riders $15 each, with all proceeds benefiting the America’s Fallen Firefighter Memorial (AFFM).

The event begins 7:30 a.m. rain or shine, at South Valley Harley-Davidson. Organizers are inviting the public, as well as firefighters, law enforcement, and volunteer groups, to join the event. Even those who do not own a motorcycle can rent one, while those with a car can also join the ride.

From 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., registered participants get a free pancake breakfast and a collectible ride pin. Afterwards, the ride leaves and proceeds to Ogden Amphitheater AFFM Monument. Memorial services will take place from noon to 1 p.m.

Anybody can get involved in the event. Those with motorcycles or cars can download the registration form from the Intermountain Harley-Davidson website, or pick one up and submit it at any of their Utah locations.

Those who choose not to ride but still want to do their part may also buy anniversary apparel. The merchandise sells for $15 per shirt and $30 per hoodie. These items, including the pins for registered riders, are available for pick up from the different registration locations. More information is at http://www.utahharley.com/
