As I mentioned in my last post I took the Army Bike in for to fix a fuel leak and to get its 30K service. While I was checking the bike into the dealership a gentlemen approached, admiring the bike.

We spoke for a few minutes and then we shook hands. During the handshake he passed a challenge coin. Turns out he is with the Patriot Guard Riders. It was the first challenge coin I have received in a while.

For those of you who do not know what a challenge coin is it is a medallion that typically bares the unit or organizations insignia. The coins are typically handed out on a limited basis during special event or when an individual performs a task at a high level. You can read more about the history of the coin here.
