MILWAUKEE, WI -

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Gov. Tommy Thompson and five other current governors have completed their Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride through the streets of Milwaukee.

About 100 combat veterans, including Medal of Honor winner Gary Wetzel, joined with the governors as part of an event Friday night during the National Governors Association meeting.             

Joining Walker and Thompson were Govs. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Phil Bryant of Mississippi, Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota and Gary Herbert of Utah.              

Walker wore a Harley jacket and blue jeans. The other governors were similarly dressed. Hickenlooper had on a leather jacket and khaki pants. 

They ended the ride at the Harley-Davidson Museum as the song "Born to Be Wild" blasted over the outdoor speakers.
