Officer Brian A. Aselton Memorial Motorcycle Run
Brian rode motorcycles ever since he was young. Brian had just purchased a 1999 Harley-Davidson Fatboy before his death. The Officer Brian A. Aselton Memorial Motorcycle Run was held for 20 years from 1999-2018 with as many as 1000 motorcycle enthusiasts riding in Brian's memory every year. The motorcycle run was the primary fundraiser for Brian's scholarship fund raising hundreds of thousands of dollars. We thank Gengras Harley-Davidson and Knights of Columbus East Hartford for hosting the ride along with all of our other sponsors, volunteers, and riders. Brian's brother, John, rides Brian's Fatboy in his memory.
