Biker Rally in Longview

The rough-tough image of bikers was softened a bit today and hundreds gathered in Longview for a good cause.

It was the first memorial hog roast at Mom's in Longview, and bikers from all over Texas turned out.

It was all to remember Nell Higginbottom, who ran mom's for over 20 years and loved motorcycles and the people who rode them. She died last December at 71.

Many came to renew old friendships and to honor the woman they all new as mom.

It was expected that 1,500 bikers from all over Texas participated in todays event.
