In summer 2001, Firefighter Gerard Baptiste of FDNY Ladder Company 9 purchased a battered 1979 Honda motorcycle, model CB750. Baptiste believed that he could restore it to good working order. Following Baptiste’s death in the North Tower on 9/11, the broken-down motorcycle remained at the firehouse until a memorial tribute in Backroads magazine inspired Baptiste’s colleagues to transform the motorcycle into a “bike of healing” known as the Dream Bike. Ten roses painted on the cover of its gas tank symbolize the members of Ladder Company 9 and Engine Company 33 who were killed on 9/11.
